Don't pirate this film, or else

Don't pirate this film, or else The creators of the new "John Dies at the End" film have created a particularly funny trailer asking people not to pirate their film, or else.
Over the years we have seen numerous anti-piracy ads created by groups like the MPAA and RIAA, most of which have bordered on ridiculous.

The most infamous of all-time is most likely the "You Wouldn't Steal a Car" series in which words fly out at the viewer stating that they since they wouldn't steal a car, or a handbag, they shouldn't steal films either.

Check the trailer here (thanks to Enigmax):

Silly as it is, I wonder if they're just trying to create some buzz around the internet. In other words, dirt cheap advertisement.

oh absolutely they are.

That's quite obvious, and they succeeded at least a little.

I think people should step back, however, and give them some credit. They were smart enough to create a digital delivery channel before the theatrical release, after all. Compare this to the major studios, who don't even release at the same time worldwide, much less create other distribution channels; at least not for several months to a year, maybe.

This is a step in the right direction for the movie industry, not that I expect the major movie houses to pay any attention.

LOL. Make sure you have a camera rolling with a note on the table telling the person that finds you dead body to post video on youtube just in case your head blows off! LMBAO

What'd you expect from an indie horror film? I'll watch it, when I can get a legal copy, simply to reward a less-foolish approach to piracy.

Dont waste your time on this movie just pass it up.

Pass up a proper weed-smokin' violent, crazy B movie? I think not.
