When you’re drumming up interest in a picture like writer/director Don Coscarelli’s John Dies at the End, you’ve got to have a red-band trailer. How else are you going to explain to people that this cult classic in the making has legions of topless women in weird masks, gratuitous bloody violence, hellish creatures that eat men whole and a walking, talking meat monster? I mean, I guess you could just say that, but it wouldn’t be nearly as effective.
The picture stars Paul Giamatti, Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes, Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman, Doug Jones, Daniel Roebuck, Jonny Weston and Fabianne Therese. Look for John Dies at the End on demand starting December 27th with a theatrical release on January 25th. Hit the jump to watch the new red-band trailer.

Here’s the synopsis for John Dies at the End:
It’s a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can’t.
