In the Mouth of Madness (1995)


By Scott Goldfine

Sam Neill is an insurance investigator looking into the disappearance of a Stephen King-like author in “In the Mouth of Madness,” a jarring, engrossing tale from horrormeister John Carpenter. Neill’s search takes him into a phantasmic world where terrifying fiction becomes reality.

Carpenter’s most assured work since “The Thing,” the film takes aim at the susceptibility of the masses. Also stars David Warner, Bernie Casey and Charlton Heston. Rated R.
