Don Coscarelli has never been what one would call a prolific director (his last film was 2002′s “Bubba Ho-Tep,” though he directed the “Masters of Horror” episode, “Incident On and Off A Mountain Road” in 2005) but he’s at least an interesting one. His films tend to be a bit uneven, but strange enough to overlook such shortcomings (unlike in the case of fellow director Tobe Hooper).
In reference to “Bubba Ho-Tep” I haven’t seen it because I couldn’t get my head around the initial concenpt, which had something to do with Elvis hiding out at a rest home, monsters, and Ozzy Davis as John F. Kennedy, Jr. (?), if I recall.
Though if the sequel to “Bubba Ho-Tep,” possibly called “Bubba-Nosfartu,” ever comes out I will have to see it because anyone bold enough to run with the whole “Bubba” thing deserves my money.
Though till that time I will have to catch his latest film, which is called “John Dies At The End.”
The title intrigues me. I like the way that it takes away any ambiguousness about John’s fate. I mean, whoever this guy is, he’s going to end up dead at some point.
And take a look at that tracking shot that opens up the trailer, and all that white, pristine snow.
