John Dies at the End Reviews

Page 1 of 4
Richard Haridy

This is a gloriously gonzo trip packed with enough odd narrative tangents to fill half a dozen features. While not always successful, this energetic mash-up so genuinely wants to entertain that it's hard not to be won over by its barrage of absurdity.

The saving grace of John Dies at the End is undoubtedly its manic storytelling: the energy and pacing of scenes give the movie the impression of being told on the spot (which is of course what the framing device intends).

It is refreshing that Coscarelli is willing to offer viewers something that at least tries to take the rules of cinema into new directions.

Gonzo freakiness in such doses that cult status is practically ensured.

Despite its astronomical body count, John Dies at the End never takes itself too seriously, and neither should you.

Something so weird and off the beaten track that it's kind of wonderful.

I'm not saying this film will make more sense if you're high. But it will make more sense if you're high.

Director Don Coscarelli isn't especially smooth or coherent, and he leans on weird for weird's sake.

It's like a series of blackout sketches, some of which are entertaining. But mostly, it's a mess.

When is a phone call from your dead friend more than just bizarre? When it's made on a hot dog. It's a hopeless mess. But, at least, for its first half, a very entertaining mess.

John Dies at the End is really freaking weird. It's along the lines of Quentin Dupieux's Rubber, but really pushes the boundaries of absurdity. Just remember that you don't choose the soy sauce. The soy sauce chooses you.

Austin Chronicle

A confusing plot to begin with, the adaptation of the novel is a certified mess, attempting to provide blow-by-blow illustrations of scenes from the source book, and lifting most of the narration and dialogue verbatim.

...a hilarious and occasionally icky story that should hit the sweet spot for people who like twisted movies and are fed up with the Hollywood assembly line.

With Coscarelli's kinetic camerawork and drugged-out, comic-book visuals, even the most confounding explanations are made palatable.

By the time the boys face battle with 'thinking machine' Korrock in another dimension, it's difficult to remain invested, although hallucinogens would probably aid immensely.
