In the Mouth of Madness Directed by John Carpenter
You have to care more about horror paperbacks than I do to see this all as a canny prophesy instead of an idle game. But In the Mouth of Madness does have a very intriguing idea on its side: that a well constructed work of fiction can override your reality, even when you know it’s fake. And thus the best moments of the film come when it scares you (sometimes exquisitely) while making as little sense as possible.

A brilliant storyteller himself, Carpenter directs Madness for all its worth, delighting the narrative’s twists and turns and embellishing them with cheerfully self-referential filmmaking. In hindsight Madness looks like the director’s last great feature, a summation of the narrative games he played in Halloween, Prince of Darkness, and other classics of the 1970s and ’80s.

What hellborn fuckery is this? An underrated uptick in Carpenter’s troubled late period, certainly. Though his more ludicrous visions still laid ahead (Ice Cube shooting space ghosts; Kurt Russell shooting hoops), In the Mouth of Madness earns the privilege of reveling in insanity.
