Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights!
Our run of new films continues this Friday with the whacked-out John Dies At the End, the latest from the great Don Coscarelli (Phantasm series, Bubba Ho-Tep). Co-stars Chase Williamson & Rob Mayes will be here in person for a Q&A after the film!
Friday March 22th @ midnight.
Quoth the FNF power blurb:
If a horror flick that’s a cross between Buckaroo Banzai, Donnie Darko and Scott Pilgrim floats your boat — or if you just want to see the always-brilliant Paul Giamatti curse like a sailor, then you may have just found your new favorite midnight movie. Director Don Coscarelli (the demented mind behind Phantasm, The Beastmaster and Bubba Ho-Tep) brings his idiosyncratic style to the mind-bending novel by Cracked.com’s David Wong, and the results are a hilarious, clever, and frequently grotesque head trip. The tone’s set by the opening scene: a hypothetical logic problem involving a murder, a poorly-made axe, a giant insect, and a vengeful zombie. John Dies At The End then winds its crazy way through phantom doorways, a new drug that causes people to spontaneously explode, alien body snatchers, alternate realities, heroic dogs, a self-help guru/exorcist (Clancy Brown), a dogged cop (Glynn Turman), and David’s best friend: the titular and possibly doomed John. Totally fun stuff.
For theater info or ticket purchases go here.
I feel like this is fairly obvious, yet it apparently could stand to be more obvious: This screening is happening in Los Angeles.
As always I am giving away some free tickets (each with a +1). To enter all you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with JOHN DIES in the subject line. Include your full name. I will only be contacting the winners.
