John_Dies_at_the_EndReviews for this film from our members:

  • Beth Accomando @ KPBS Cinema Junkie
    • Excerpt: “John Dies at the End” should carry a drug label warning: caution consumption of this film may induce hallucinations, impair your ability to see the world as you once did, and cause outbursts of uncontrollable laughter.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: By the time the boys face battle with ‘thinking machine’ Korrock in another dimension, it’s difficult to remain invested, although hallucinogens would probably aid immensely.
  • Mark Harris @
  • Danny King @ The King Bulletin
    • Excerpt: At its worst, ‘John Dies at the End’ exists in this weird tonal no-man’s-land, not humorous and not scary — like a poor man’s attempt at David Lynch, but with more insects.

  • Dan Lybarger @
    • Excerpt: It is refreshing that Coscarelli is willing to offer viewers something that at least tries to take the rules of cinema into new directions.
  • Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
    • Excerpt: There is so much potential in John Dies at the End that its ultimate failure is a crushing disappointment.
  • [New – 10/10] | Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
  • Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Ver “John Dies at the End” é uma experiência que só pode ser melhorada com a leitura do livro. Coscarelli está de regresso e em boa forma.
  • Norm Schrager @ Meet In the Lobby
  • Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies
    • Excerpt: [Coscarelli] attacks the material as if he’s intoxicated by it, and we get a contact high from his enthusiasm.
  • Andrew Wyatt @ Look/Listen (St. Louis Magazine)
    • Excerpt: John Dies at the End is undeniably a Bad Movie, but it’s challenging to actively dislike a work that is so enthusiastic about its mission to be fractured and unpredictable.
