Don't be fooled by our rather pedestrian image of actor Paul Giamatti attached to this article, the comedy-horror-thriller John Dies at the End is not a simple story.
Ostensibly about two slackers who begin to understand the "secret behind the universe" after trying a drug called Soy Sauce, the trailer, which just premiered at Austin's Fantastic Fest, is filled with giant bugs, men in strange masks, a meat monster, lots and lots of guns and Giamatti frequently popping up trying to make sense of it all. The movie's official synopsis does a better job than the trailer itself.

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.
