Paul Giamatti Gets Scared Stupid In New John Dies At The End Red Band Clip
The marketing push behind John Dies at the End has been on a roll lately. A few days ago we got an special anti-piracy trailer, this afternoon an "alternative" poster popped online, and now we have a bit of red band goodness for you.
A brand new restricted clip has arrived online and I think the highlight has to be the number of times Paul Giamatti squeezes the word "shit" into his dialogue. You can watch the scene below, courtesy of Yahoo! and be warned that there's a solid fright just a few seconds in. Prepare!
I haven't read the novel that the movie is based on, but from what I can tell from this clip it would seem that the plot involves creatures that are invisible while being directly looked at, and can only be seen with an open mind and solid peripheral vision. It's an idea that should be worth some scares if played properly.
Based on the book written by David Wong, John Dies At The End is set in a world where a new drug called Soy Sauce has become all of the rage. Upon taking it the user finds him or herself transported across space and time for the ultimate rush. The problem, though, is that after taking Soy Sauce some people don't come back as human, and it becomes up to two college dropouts (Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes) to save the world. Don Coscarelli, best known as the writer/director of Phantasm, Beastmaster, and Bubba Ho-Tep, helmed the flick, which is currently available On Demand, but if you're waiting to see it on the big screen then you won't have to wait much longer, as it will be heading to theaters on January 25th.
