        Fun, horror-comedy-B-movie with above-average plot that keeps you on your toes!

        Hands down one of the worst films I've ever seen.

        Remember how you ignored Donny Darko, and the Evil Dead (The Big Lebowski too) movies until they became cult classics? Well, it's time to step up your game and get on board with a film before it has it's perpetual booth at comic con. Original, hilarious, trippy, thought provoking and well done.

        John Dies at the End is one of those delightfully weird movies. Yes, it lacks here and there in various aspects (e.g. plot) but none of that detracts from the fun. While I found it to be a notch below classics such as Repo Man, still it is undeniably a good time.
