John Dies at the End (2012)
directed by Don Coscarelli starring Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes, and Paul Giamatti in English
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.
Based on the novel by author David Wong, John Dies at the End was adapted and directed by horror auteur Don Coscarelli. The film premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival to great acclaim.
After sold-out screenings at major film festivals including Sundance, SXSW, and Seattle, John Dies at the End will be coming soon to a theater near you.

Bubba Ho-Tep (2002)
directed by Don Coscarelli starring Bruce Campbell and Ossie Davis in English
Based on the Bram Stoker Award nominee short story by cult author Joe R. Lansdale, Bubba Ho-tep tells the “true” story of what really did become of Elvis Presley. We find Elvis (Bruce Campbell) as an elderly resident in an East Texas rest home, who switched identities with an Elvis impersonator years before his “death”, then missed his chance to switch back. Elvis teams up with Jack (Ossie Davis), a fellow nursing home resident who thinks that he is actually President John F. Kennedy, and the two valiant old codgers sally forth to battle an evil Egyptian entity who has chosen their long-term care facility as his happy hunting grounds.

Phantasm II (1988)
directed by Don Coscarelli starring James LeGros, Reggie Bannister and Angus Scrimm in English
The Tall Man is back with a vengeance in Phantasm II, the second chapter in the cult classic Phantasm series! Released after seven years in a mental hospital, Mike convinces his old pal Reggie to join forces with him to hunt down and destroy The Tall Man once and for all.
Mike’s visions lead the two to a quiet little town where a horde of flying killer balls aim to slice and dice their gruesome way through each of them. Exploding with special effects, unparalleled thrills, horror and suspense, Phantasm II climaxes with a blood-curdling conclusion that you have to see to believe.
