Quite possibly, you read the book. Anywho..get ready for complete weirdness. To some, its down right silly, and can't go for that. Still, I believe director Don Coscarelli definitely did an awesome job of adapting the book into a movie. I'm sure its on its way to being a cult classic..right up there with the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
“You asked me earlier if I was a sociopath. Well, you’d better hope I am because the world was built by sociopaths, men willing to send a million innocent boys into battle to be chopped to screaming giblets, all so a banner can be raised over another piece of land with houses and markets and roads soon after.”

The movie has a wonderful cast. It doesn't hurt to have Paul Giamatti along for the ride. Although, I seriously feel this movie belongs to Chase Williamson as Dave Wong. More so than Rob Mayes as John.
It all starts with a party. If only, Dave had got the Jamaican guy a beer. But who knows, I'm sure the story would have started somewhere. For the most part the movie is a great big flashback as it weaves the wonders of the special soy sauce. Add a creepy spider or two and special effects with a meat monster and you just might be having freaky dreams, too.
Need an anti-Valentines day treat? Its easier than you think. Just hook up with Amazon Instant Video with this one.
STORYLINE: 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.
