    Synopsis


    In the Mouth of Madness
    Hired to help locate a missing author, an insurance investigator discovers to his terror that the nightmarish events depicted in the writer's best-selling horror novels are coming true. Wishing to be both a horror film and a parody of the genre, John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness combines supernatural thrills with winking references. For instance, the vanished author, Sutter Cane (Jürgen Prochnow), is modeled on writers like Stephen King and Howard Phillips Lovecraft, from his great popularity to his obsession with small-town New England. Indeed, it is to one such hamlet that investigator John Trent (Sam Neill) and Cane's female editor (Julie Carmen) travel, discovering a town filled with terrifying scenes right out of Cane's books, from random axe murders to far worse. Have Cane's fans gone psychotic and begun imitating his writings, or are Cane's stories of an otherworldly evil invading the earth actually true? In the Mouth of Madness's mix of self-referential satire and real frights anticipates the later Scream (1996). ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

      This is one of my favorite John Carpenter films! My wife and I love this movie. I actually bought this movie when it first came out on VHS like 15 years ago. And of course, I bought it again on DVD after getting rid of all my VHSs and making the transition to DVD. Obviously, I've been collecting for many years. My wife and I currently have around 2,000 DVDs and always growing. (As you know, if you've read any of my other reviews.) This remains one of my all time favorites. It never gets old. I put it right up there with The Thing and Halloween as John Carpenters best. Also, I thought Sam Neill did a terrific job. This movie is very twisted and trippy. If you've never seen it, it's a classic must see horror film! It's a definite must have for any horror movie collector. Buy it!!!

      Probably John Carpenter's last great film. Fans of HP Lovecraft will definitely appreciate this one. Sam Neil was great as usual. Confusing and may require more than one watch. Just wish it was a bit longer to add a bit more context and atmosphere.

      A great John Carpenter movie overall. The new Blu-ray transfers is really crisp as is the sound. Great special features and removable cover art makes it awesome.

      This move has a little bit of everything-- suspense, horror, mystery- it was a fun fun film! The picture/audio was really good as well- do yourself a favor and buy this one- ESPECIALLY if you're a John Carpenter fan!

      In the Mouth of Madness is one of the most underrated horror films ever made. The story is original, the acting is great, and there are actual eerie scenes that many horror films lack.

      This is a pretty good movie and definitely one of the best horror movies to come out during the 1990s. There is only a commentary on the disc, but its a very good one.
