'John Dies at the End' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Mar 19, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The latest horror-comedy written and directed by cult legend Don Coscarelli will hit Blu-ray next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Magnolia says 'John Dies at the End' is coming to Blu-ray on April 9.

In 'John Dies at the End,' it’s all about the Soy Sauce, a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. 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 (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson), a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs...

Adapted from David Wong’s audacious trans-genre horror novel, 'John Dies at the End' with screenplay by and directed by Don Coscarelli ('Bubba Ho-tep') and also stars Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman and Paul Giamatti.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Commentary with Writer/Director Don Coscarelli, Producer Brad Baruh, Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes; Deleted Scenes; Getting Sauced: The Making of John Dies at the End; Creature Corps: The Effects of Soy Sauce; Casting Sessions; Fangoria Interview with Paul Giamatti; and Trailers.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
