A hint at what you're in for: mustaches peeling off of faces & flying around, coffee mugs that shoot bullets that turn into flies...after all that happens, THEN it gets weird.

This is a film for the young and the young at heart. And those who like their philosophy laden with a heavy dose of paranoia and oddity.

This is a great jumping-off point if you've never been exposed to Don Coscarelli, one of the less-seen indie horror filmmakers out there. If "JDATE" serves as the gateway for new fans, then the movie will be twice the success it already is.

Jump in, leave you sense of logic at the door, sit back and enjoy the trip.

Rare is the flick that wedges this many genres into one frame, and so well.

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).

stands up to repeat viewings, and offers new insights each and every time

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.
March 13, 2013
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.

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.

Coscarelli's visual imagination is still capable of making you sit up and take notice

[It] eventually finds its own rhythm and meaningful chaos.
February 21, 2013
...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.
February 21, 2013
With Coscarelli's kinetic camerawork and drugged-out, comic-book visuals, even the most confounding explanations are made palatable.
February 20, 2013
An enjoyable but less than totally absorbing linear adventure.

John Dies at the End should carry a drug label warning: caution consumption of this film may induce hallucinations, impair your ability to see the world as you once did, and cause outbursts of uncontrollable laughter.

Sort of like if Franz Kafka drank a bunch of absinthe and then wrote an homage to Sam Raimi, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Donnie Darko. And that's a good thing
