What the soy sauce!? Could this news ACTUALLY be true? Yes indeed kiddos. Looks like David Wong’s hit book, John Dies at the End, will finally be getting distributed by MAGNET.
If you haven’t read the book yet, I’ll give you a brief synopsis. It’s rather had to examine without just reading it, because it’s one of the wackiest things I’ve ever read, but here’s a synopsis the best I can sum up. Actually here’s the official synopsis from the author, he knows better than me anywho.
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.
See what I mean about it being wacky? To further illustrate my point check out the trailer below. The movie was expected to come out January of this year, but the distribution held that up. Luckily, Magnet is becoming one of my favorite horror distribution companies, like Anchor Bay USED to be, and is putting it out. Enjoy!
John Dies at the End is being released VOD at the end of this year, with a 2013 theatrical release day. JDATE is directed by Don Coscarelli who also did those horrible Phantasm movies.
