In the Mouth of Madness
Horror • R • 1995 • 1 hr 35 min
Watch it for the incredible visuals. Forget plot. See Sam Neil punch and get punched while being chased by cronenburg people.
I can honestly watch Sam Neill in pretty much anything but put him in a dark psychological horror movie and I’ll watch it over and over.
Something about the mood and pace, and how Sam devolves from coy cynic, to terrified, to acquiescent to defeat, is pleasing and horrifying.
The best Lovecraft movie that isn't made by Lovecraft
May not rank as one of Carpenter’s best, but it’s still a nice ride and definitely a mind f***.
The last film in Carpenter’s apocalypse/cosmic horror series, directly inspired by Lovecraft himself
Lovecraftian classic Carpenter. Neill delivers a McGoogan like character and you get Prochnow, Warner & Heston. Worth time for horror fans.
Some of the ideas are not realized to their fullest potential in my opinion but this is still quite amazing in how creative and scary it is
Amazing movie, fast paced and cool monsters designs
Arguably the best Lovecraftian horror movie out there. Love letter to Stephen King too.
