The teaser trailer for the horror comedy John Dies at the End has gone online. It’s the new flick from Bubba Ho-Tep director Don Coscarelli and it’s got great actors like Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown, and Doug Jones (who surprisingly is not in make-up) in the cast. But after watching this teaser trailer, I still have no idea what the movie is about beyond the protagonist tripping balls. There’s apparently a new intravenous drug with the street name “Soy Sauce” because of its black color, and it causes crazy hallucinations. I guess it’s tougher to explain than “Old Elvis fights the Mummy”.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer along with the official synopsis, which also doesn’t provide any clarification on the plot.

Here’s the official 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.
