John Dies at the End

de Don Coscarelli



In 2001, with the title of “John Dies at the End”, a David Wong started to disseminate over the Internet the comical-horrific misfortunes experienced by himself and his friend John, both consumers of a drug that allow them to see events that will happen in the future, and to detect the presence of a series of monsters living among us. Hidden behind Wong was Jason Pirgin, creator of the Cracked website, who caused a huge online sensation with this series. A decade later, Don Coscarelli has taken charge of its screen version and gotten Paul Giamatti involved in the adventure, achieving a fascinating, instant cult classic.
