In The Mouth of Madness: John Carpenter’s Overlooked Treasure

This isn’t so much a review of John Carpenter’s 1994 film, In The Mouth of Madness, as it is a love letter. This has fast become my favorite John Carpenter film. And the travesty, is not many people know about it.
It has many of my favorite elements. It has a character who is a horror author, who we don’t get to meet until the end of the film. It takes place in a fictional town in New England. And, it is highly influenced by the works of one of my favorite authors, H.P. Lovecraft.
It has Sam Neill giving a dynamite performance. In truth, it’s hard for me to think of one problem I have with the film.
I urge you to go watch this film if you haven’t yet. It’s up on Netflix instant streaming, and would be excellent to add to any horror movie fest. If you want to do a Carpenter-fest, I’d recommend starting with it, followed by either Halloween, The Fog, or The Thing.
Do you read Sutter Cane?
