One of the biggest disappointments in the world is finding out how a movie ends before you hit the theater. That is, of course, unless you're waiting to see the "John Dies at the End," based on the David Wong novel of the same name.
The movie, which stars Paul Giamatti, Chase Williamson, Rob Mays, and Clancy Brown, begins and ends with John, a 20-something who finds himself neck-deep in monsters, mayhem and moo shu after experimenting with a new drug dubbed "soy sauce." The result is half buddy comedy, half acid trip, with plenty of eyeless people, blood and dimensional shifts along the way.
Giamatti plays a reporter trying to get the story behind the drug from John's friend David, who has found himself caught up in John's bizarre world.
So what is the movie about? On the surface, drugs and zombies. But if you dig deeper, it's about drugs, zombies, existentialism, and is still pretty damn confusing.
As David explains, "If you already happen to know the awful secret behind the universe, feel free to fast forward ahead."
