‘Trainspotting’ engineer Danny Boyle delves back into the world of crime with ‘Trance,’ with less-than-hypnotic results.

Better than the hit novel on which it’s as faithfully based as budgetary issues allow, John Dies at the End
is one of those movies that tries really hard to be a cult movie. In
this case, however, the goal has been met; I suspect that, as with most
of director Don Coscarelli’s work, from Phantasm and The Beastmaster to Bubba Ho-Tep, we’ll still be discussing this one decades later. That’s not to say it’s without faults.
