Frightful October Horror Movie Picks – DAY 1

“John Dies at the End”

From Don Coscarelli, the writer/director of the brilliant black-horror-comedy “Bubba Ho-Tep”, and the cult “Phantasm” series, comes a new vision of…I don’t want to say terror, but batshit weirdness. Seriously you wanna watch one of the WEIRDEST horror films ever made, or at least for the last decade then watch “John Dies at the End”, because I’ve watched it 3x already within the past year, and I’m still dissecting it. John & David (Chase Williamson & Rob Mayes) are a couple of spiritual exorcist (yeah, I know), and the come across a new kind of drug that heightens their supernatural out look, a black goo of a drug called ‘soy sauce’. David goes on a surreal odyssey to rescue a dead John, sorry, he’s being ordered by future John to rescue dead John (again, I know). These two hapless slackers travel through time and space and see things that no human should see, and do things normal human beings should never do.

With all the weirdness that follows, it something that some viewers who’re familiar with Coscarelli’s work should come to expect. Hell, watch “Phantasm” and you’ll automatically understand what you’re getting yourself in for. Many will more than likely be some will be indifferent to this movie, but in the end it’s all about opening your mind, and accepting the overall weirdness. Few will find the movies darkly funny, genre-bending incoherence amusing; while others will feel its unconventional antics and nonsensical gore may leave them unsatisfied.
