Clever Film Trailer for “John Dies At The End” Aimed at Pirates

Don Coscarelli’s film version of David Wong’s novel John Dies At The End is almost here. The latest trailer, spiked with seriously dark humor, is aimed at film pirates.

Here’s the film description:

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. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.

Adapted from David Wong’s audacious trans-genre horror novel, JOHN DIES AT THE END is written and directed by Don Coscarelli (BUBBA HO-TEP) and also stars Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman and Paul Giamatti.

Warning! — this trailer is graphic and not for the timid…

  1. I don’t know how effective this ad will be at pirates. Surely they’ve run into the funding argument before and rationalize around it. I wonder if directly addressing them, and projecting even cartoonish negativity at them, wouldn’t just irk them. It’d be great to get data on this sort of thing, though empirical testing is pretty hard on services that get shut down when they’re located.
