John Dies at the End (2012)

Director: Don Coscarelli

Stars: Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes, Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown, Doug Jones

It's a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs.

This is not a bad movie, but it not a good one at the same time. You watch it, and you keep on watching it. It is not because you are enjoying the movie. It is more out of that you are trying to figure the movie out even more. This is a movie that you need to pay some attention to, but at the same time the movie does not explain parts of the movie that well. You are kind of screwed either way.

This is not a movie for everybody. It is a movie that does not explain itself very well, and you have to pay attention to it just to keep up with it. The sad part is that it does not really help. This movie is a one watcher. It looks good, but you feel a bit lost after watching it. Enjoy?
