David Wong's novel is often laugh-out-loud funny, but it's like if "Ghostbusters" was written by Robert Anton Wilson. There's something deeply wrong with the world around the two main characters in this movie, and they get caught up in a battle for reality itself. Don Coscarelli seems to only make labors of love, and it can take years between films for him because of the fiercely independent way his movies are made and released. But so far, he's proven to be one of the most original and constantly evolving voices in American horror cinema, and we're rooting for this collision of great filmmaker and great source material to deliver in every way.
