John Dies at the End (new Don Coscarelli film)

Synopsis: 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. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can't.

Cast includes Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown and Doug Jones. Adapted from the book of the same name by David Wong.

Teaser trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=my9Pr-W92SM

Holy shit that looks AMAZING! That has to be one of the best looking horror films since Cronenberg quit doing horror. I hope it lives up to that trailer. I wonder if Coscarelli will be able to get this a wide theatrical release. Here's to hoping.

Looks good to me so far. I'm a big fan of Clancy Brown and the story already has me interested.

Too much comedy, but the cast is pretty good (can't STAND Giamatti though, who on Earth thinks pimping his involvement is a plus?) and it looks well enough written. I'd check it out if it finds its' way to Netflix: Watch Instant in the near future.

If it''s anything like Bubba ho tep, then I really want to see it, cause that one had the comedy in all the right places & the heart in all the right places. I trust that Don knows what he's doing from his past efforts & it will show on the screen.

I'm hooked! Wish this were an October 2011 release, though. Looks really, really fun.

I have the book this is based on, haven't got around to reading it yet. Looks like I have an excuse to read it now.

This looks very interesting, and makes me very excited to see it. I love Coscarelli's films and his touch is present in the trailer.

Shit, now I'm gonna have to try and read the book before the movie comes out! Great cast and with Coscarelli in the directors chair this could be fantastic.

Yeah this looks pretty damn good! Maybe if this does well we may finally see the finale of the Phantasm series.

I'm just now coming across this trailer...holy shit what just happened?! Is this coming out soon in stores? Being this thread is a year old I'd figure it'd be out by now.
