  • Excerpt: While Don Coscarelli might not enjoy the same widespread name recognition as his other horror brethren, he does have the distinction of never seeing his stock falter much. Since blowing away horror fans with his nightmarish, unconventional genre debut, “Phantasm” (1979), he’s made around a half dozen pictures that have all – to varying degrees – been seen as minor cult classics.

  • Summary: One of the most creative, bizarre and unpredictable genre films to come around in some time, John Dies At The End isn’t going to be for all tastes – it’s just too damn weird. But for the horror fan with a taste for surreal comedy who doesn’t mind a good mind fuck now and then, this is pretty great stuff. It’s stylish, occasionally gross, often times very funny and just really, really fun.

  • Conclusion: Genre comedies are hard to pull off. 'John Dies at the End' has enough ideas and zaniness that it may develop a cult following along the lines of 'The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension,' but it needed a sharper story and more engaging characters to reach 'Big Trouble in Little China' status. Fans of the movie should be happy with the Blu-ray.

John Dies at the End (2012)

  • Conclusion: If John Dies at the End were an acronym, it would definitely be "WTF." Weird and silly and funnier than you might expect, it's another instant cult hit—if an acquired taste—from director Don Coscarelli, the odd-ball horror auteur behind Phantasm , The Beastmaster , and Bubba Ho-Tep . Fans of his previous work will definitely be on-board with the new film's tone, and the movie also seems like a detailed love letter to readers of Jason Pargin/David Wong's novel.

Jason Pargin is a cult author, best known for his gonzo novel John Dies At The End (written under the pseudonym David Wong), which was originally serialized on the internet. These are two men with strong individual styles, which get mutually amplified in Coscarelli’s adaptation of John Dies At The End .

  • Excerpt: It's been a full decade since director Don Coscarelli released Bubba Ho-Tep , one of the most enjoyably batshit-insane pictures in recent memory. (It concerns an old, fat Elvis and a black JFK battling an ancient Egyptian mummy. Look, just rent it.) One could safely assume that, in that decade, Mr. Coscarelli came up with an abundance of concepts and ideas that he wanted to try out.
