John Dies At The End

20130210-213421.jpgCaught John Dies at the End last night after hearing it chatted about in both horror and lit circles (podcast culture Venn diagrams), and terrific – recommend it if you are into campy, indie, artisanal horror. Caveat – not for everyone, very vulgar and not even a little bit family friendly. Directed by Don Coscarelli (who did the Phantasm movies), written by David Wong (Jason Pargin), a senior editor at Cracked.com. Awesome secondary role for Paul Giamatti, The dialogue is fantastic, cast is fun to watch and blend of bizarre comedy offbeat philosophical musings and gross-out horror is dead on.
