Reviews:
"[T]his stoner GHOSTBUSTERS, an altered state disguised as a movie, may also add up to a hot cult item....Go for the freaky fun of it..." - 01/31/2013 Rolling Stone


"Flaked with offbeat witticisms, cheese ball effects and fanboy splatter gore, the surreal JOHN DIES AT THE END has the vibe of a shaggy dog story." - 01/24/2013 Los Angeles Times


"[With] some deliciously deadpan performances, especially that of Chase Williamson....What he's actually doing, however, is metering out emotion with a precision that belies his lack of experience; remarkably, this is his first feature film." - 01/24/2013 Wall Street Journal


"It’s a ridiculous, preposterous, sometimes maddening experience, but also kind of a blast." - 02/01/2013 New York Times


"[I]t’s not every B-horror picture that combines demonic creatures and ultra-violence with musings about what it means to be alive in a world that’s getting more unreal by the day." - 01/24/2013 A.V. Club


"[T]he comic horror extends in many directions....At its finest, JOHN glides on this charming fusion of ideas and goofy fun..." - 02/06/2013 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "Gonzo freakiness in such doses that cult status is practically ensured." - 03/15/2013 Empire
