All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

John Dies At the End (2012)

Starring: Paul Giamatti, Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes
Director: Don Cascarelli


Premise:
Two slackers has adverse effects to a new street drug. It allows them to see supernatural things and they uncover a plot for creatures from an alternate universe to take over our world.

My Take:
I'm a huge fan of the novel and there was so much in the story that would be hard to trasnlate into the film medium as it is simply over the top and dense. Cascarelli does an excellent job though at getting a good amount of the pure craziness into the film to construct a coheret narrative while hitting the right comedic and horror tones. The cast does an excellent job too. Overall, it's an entertaining adaptation.   

Rating: So Good
