People may disagree on the legalities of internet piracy, but attempting to steal director Don Coscarelli’s John Dies at the End may actually result in your gruesome death. That’s the premise of this new anti-piracy warning for the film, which stars Chase Williamson, Rob Mayes and Paul Giamatti. The twisted horror comedy is now availabe on iTunes and VOD with a theatrical release slated for January 25th.
Already in theaters is Judd Apatow’s This Is 40, though the best parts of the movie might be the deleted scenes on the eventual Blu-ray. One of those scenes features Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong pitching an odd combination of musical genres to Paul Rudd’s character. Hit the jump to check out the videos from John Dies at the End and This Is 40.

Why exactly it lists what should be a buyer’s price in order to rent, I have no idea. Here’s the synopsis for John Dies at the End:
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.
