I’ve decided to subject myself to 31 days of horror films for the month of October. It will be a mix of rewatching stuff I haven’t seen in awhile and brand new things. Day 7:
IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS (1994) – dir. John Carpenter
I really have avoided John Carpenter post-THEY LIVE since I saw VAMPIRES so I was really happy to find myself engrossed in this movie. Still has plenty of practical effects and puppets that look gross. The movie is genuinely creepy and I love Sam Neill. Good noir-horror that knew exactly what it is. I’m kinda a sucker for this Lovecraftian meta horror so I bought the film hook, line, and sinker. Also I finally know where that damn photo of pajama-clad Neill eating popcorn in an empty movie theater is from!
