return of the don.,
This review is from: John Dies At The End (BLU RAY) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Based on the online web journal cum novel by 'David Wong' (AKA Jason Pargin), Don Coscarelli's fast and loose adaptation plays out like an ungodly mix of bad Stephen King adaptations with a smattering of Garth Ennis goodness mixed in with a smidgen of William Burroughs and beat generation grooviness for good measure, served with a side helping of self depreciating humour that isn't too scared (or precious) to invite the audiences to laugh along with the absurdities on screen.
And just when you think it can't get any better Angus Scrimm turns up.
Perfectly cast and played straighter than Hugh Jackman, JDATE rewards those of us who've stuck by Coscarelli during the wilderness years and finally enables us to forgive him for the wee boy in Phantasm III.
And if that isn't praise enough I don't know what is.
If you ever care a tiny bit about cinema and don't want to be laughed at forever for being totally unfashionable you need to see this movie.
