Well, this is weird. In case you hadn't heard, John Dies at the End, the new film from Bubba Ho-Tep director Don Coscarelli, is now available on VOD through iTunes, Amazon, PS3, XBOX 360 and more. However, the indie film doesn't want any trouble with piracy before it heads into theaters on January 25th next year, so this anti-piracy trailer has been sent out to somehow scare those bad Internet people who are trying to destroy independent film. Basically, if you pirate the film, you'll spontaneously combust. It's pretty cheesy, but the message is good. Don't be a dumb jerk and steal this movie on the Internet. Watch below!
Here's the gory anti-piracy trailer for Don Coscarelli's John Dies at the End, from YouTube:
It's a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can't. Based on David Wong's 2007 book. Written & directed by Don Coscarelli (of Phantasm I-IV, The Beastmaster, Survival Quest, Bubba Ho-Tep). This first premiered at Sundance and is hitting theaters on January 25th, plus VOD starting right now. Visit: johndies.com.
