In the Mouth of Madness(Review)[Twisted Throwback Thursday]
This is hands down my most favorite John Carpenter film, next to The Thing of course. A film of the lines between fiction and reality being indistinguishable, and I saw it as a homage to HP Lovecraft. This movie would fit very well in his Cthulhu mythos universe
The movie is about an insurance agent who is investigating the disappearance of a horror author by the name of Sutter Cain. He thinks it is just a hoax and a publicity stunt, but comes to find out the truth is stranger than fiction. What follows is his battle for his own sanity as he tries to figure out what is real and what is unreal.
Not many movies do this to me, but this is one of the ones that still perturbed to this day. The creature effects in this movie are very well done,and just the imagery itself can be creepy at times. One person may seem normal at first in one scene, and then in the next, they may either be trying to attack someone, or they might just sprout tentacles out of their body. When I said this was an homage to Lovecraft, I definitely meant it. There are even references to the Old Ones.
Definitely cannot recommend this movie enough as it's scare factor still holds up today
