John Dies At The End movie

I just watched this this morning and I loved every second of it. I came into this never having read the book, and not knowing the story, and in this case I'm glad I did because it meant I didn't know what to expect as it went on. I think this is probably one of the weirdest, craziest, most bizarre movies I've ever seen, and I'm very glad that I did see it.
Edit: My rating: Excellent.
I definitely plan on reading the book, and it's sequel This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously Dude, Don't Touch It.

I loved both books and highly recommend them. I can't wait to see the movie because I can't imagine how they can translate all that happens in the book into a movie.

They made a movie of this? Holy shit, I didn't even know.

I read the book online back in the day. John Cheese was fucking hilarious.

Shouldn't the title of this topic be considered a spoiler?

^That was another thing I thought was great.

I forgot to mention that the movie was given early release as a digital download, so you can watch it now despite the fact that it isn't in theaters for a while. I watched it on The Playstation Network.
I meant to post this before and forgot. The red band trailer.

^I haven't read the book, but I was expecting what you said in the spoiler to happen. It just HAD to be that way.

Yeah, when a movie like this has a title like that, then it pretty much has to end the way it did.

Saw it last night.

Fantastic.

So i'm guessing the book came out long before Supernatural started?

But one could possibly argue that the "end" hasn't happened yet since there was a sequel book and maybe more...

One could also argue that he died in the middle of the movie, only because the smart fuck ran long.
