Director: John Carpenter
Cast: Sam Neill, Julie Carmen, Jürgen Prochnow
“Reality isn’t what it used to be.”
Sutter Cane (Jurgen Prochnow) is the best-selling author whose newest novel is literally driving readers insane. When he inexplicably vanishes, his publisher (Charlton Heston) sends special investigator John Trent (Sam Neill) to track him down. Drawn to a town that only exists in Cane’s books, Trent crosses the barrier between fact and fiction and enters a terrifying world from which there is no escape.
John Carpenter’s Apocalypse Trilogy of films (THE THING/PRINCE OF DARKNESS/IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS) do not share characters or locations, but they are connected in their nihilistic view of a vast and uncaring cosmos, where unknown terrors dwell. He said, “all three of those movies are, in one way or another, about the end of things, about the end of everything, the world we know, but in different ways.” IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS tackles the end of oneself, as we travel a meta downward spiral towards an existential horror, bent on rewriting the world. – Steven Landry
