If you’ve seen the first theatrical trailer, then you’re aware of the wild hijinks that director Don Coscarelli has in store for his Bubba Ho-Tep follow-up John Dies at the End.

Check it out below, via IGN, for the film starring Paul Giamatti, Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes, Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman, Doug Jones, Daniel Roebuck, Jonny Weston and Fabianne Therese.
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.
