EXCLUSIVE: Paul Giamatti and Don Coscarelli Talk 'John Dies at the End'

The actor and filmmaker discuss this trippy tale about two slackers who investigate the effects of a dangerous drug, in theaters January 25.
It has been nine, nearly 10 long years since director Don Coscarelli's last film, the beloved Bubba Ho-Tep. The filmmaker finally returns with yet another cult classic in the making, John Dies at the End. Chase Williamson and Rob Mayes star as Dave and John, two slackers who get pulled into a bizarre world centering on an unusual drug dubbed Soy Sauce, which allows users to drift through time and space. Paul Giamatti headlines a stellar supporting cast as Arnie, a writer who Dave tells his story to through flashbacks over coffee at a seedy diner. It's hard to put the rest of this movie into a few succinct words, but fret not, fans of Don Coscarelli's work will feel right at home.
