John Dies At The End is now available on-demand and a new behind-the-scenes featurette has been released, featuring Paul Giamatti and director Don Coscarelli.

Similar to other films picked up by Magnet, we're getting it now on VOD, with a limited theatrical release to follow.
"On the street, they call it 'soy sauce.' It's a paranormal, psychoactive drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. Its users drift across time and dimensions, but some who come back are devoid of all humanity. While most of Earth's inhabitants remain blissfully oblivious to its threat. Make no mistake, an otherworldly invasion is under way, and mankind needs to be saved. Enter John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. How can these guys possibly be expected to rescue mankind from certain destruction?
Originally erupting from the devilishly ingenious mind of David Wong, alter ego of Cracked.com's senior editor Jason Pargin, JOHN DIES AT THE END began as a Web serial that became an Internet phenomenon. In the highly capable hands of legendary cult horror director Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-Tep), Pargin's wildly trippy vision is forged into big-screen eye candy. The end result will take you to places in your subconscious that you shouldn't be allowed to visit."
John Dies At The End stars Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes, Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman, Doug Jones, Fabianne Therese, Jonny Weston, Paul Giamatti, and Daniel Roebuck. The movie will be released to theaters starting on January 25th. Interested in learning more? Check back soon for our exclusive interview with Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes.
