    A madcap romp with a thin veneer of philosophy, that when imbibed with liberal amounts of mind altering substances is both viscerally pleasing, and intellectually engaging.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A cautionary tale of the real secret of the universe, the title is not really a spoiler but more of a "side effect" of the film's supernatural narcotic called Soy Sauce, giving us a glimpse into a weird, exciting, and horrifying Earth where all that stands against ultimate destruction is David Wong and his friend John.

    Gonzo freakiness in such doses that cult status is practically ensured.

    Despite its astronomical body count, John Dies at the End never takes itself seriously, and neither should you.

    John Dies at the End is easily funnier than it is scary, and much like the drug at the center of the story, it offers one hell of a trip.
