This review is from: In The Mouth Of Madness (1994) All Region DVD (Region 1,2,3,4,5,6 Compatible) (DVD)
For too many years the horror genre has been stuck in the doldrums and the formulaic trash that is spun out year after year - particularly the slasher films - are a cynical safe bet for producers who simply do the maths and churn out sequels and overused plots to make a calculated profit. In The Mouth Of Madness is refreshingly different and tells the tale of Sutter Cane, horror novelist whose books have a troubling effects on his readers. A homage to Lovecraft and some fine twists at the end, the movie is well-paced and on a higher level than some of the stuff Hollywood have distributed, nicely-packaged, from their old factory conveyor belt. Top marks for originality.
