John Dies at the End could be described as a combination of "They Live", "Cabin in the Woods", and "Scary Movie". It is a comedy/horror about what happens when two trailer trash boys are forced to learn horrible revelations about the world they think they live in. After unwittingly taking a drug dubbed "Soy Sauce", David and John gain temporary, often useless and uncontrollable powers that allow them to interact with an uncooperative spirit world. They fight monsters made of cold cuts, alien-infested humans, low-level Elder Gods, and TV psychics. Lovecraftian and irreverent, this book is the first of three books written by Cracked.com author David Wong. I loved this book so much that I ended up reading the other two, "This Book is Full of Spiders" and "What the Hell Did I Just Read".
A full-length tale based on the cult online serial by the editor-in-chief of Cracked.com finds an increasing number of people changed into threatening inhuman creatures by a hallucinogen, a situation that places the fate of the world in the hands of a pair of anti-heroes. Reprint. 100,000 first printing.
