John Dies at the End (2013) Review:

Having been greatly deceived by Bubba Ho-Tep (I know that everyone praised it as a wonderful film, but I didn’t really enjoy the humor), I was really curious to see Coscarelli’s next film. John Dies at the End is once more a horror comedy, but despite a great lot of comical scenes and funny quotes, it remains a horror film primarily, a science-fiction horror to be more accurate.

The film has a completely fucked-up plot, the only movies I can compare it with are Matrix or Inception (two of my favorite films). The story gets all over the place and is well spiced up with some gory moment, funny quotes, and really clever twists. Truly, the brilliant scenario does make John Dies at the End one of the best sci-fi horror releases from the last 10 years or so.

The only little drawback may be the film’s cheap “B-movie” aspect, which might distract from the story at times. This, however, does go very well with the comedy atmosphere of the film. Some scenes are truly hilarious, one of the rare horror comedy to make me laugh out loud, and not just smile.

To conclude, this film is simply an immediate cult that should definitely have is place on the top shelf of your collection.
