This October we’re focused on one thing and one thing only… watching as much horror-related programming as possible to prime the pop culture pump in celebration of Halloween. Our consuming will be taking place nightly, and while there’s no rhyme or reason to how we’re going about choosing our scary screenings, we’ll do our best to tell you how we did it so that you can watch them as well.
Title: In The Mouth of Madness
Directed By: John Carpenter
Starring: Sam Neill, Julie Carmen, Jurgen Prochnow, John Glover
We Watched On: Amazon Prime (Rented for $2.99)
Trunktober Approved Because: “Do you read Sutter Cane?” It’s a simple question that requires a simple answer, but when you peel back the layers of said simple question, what you find at the core is not very simple at all. Simple enough, right? Yeah, it’s that kind of psychological somersault that is at the core of “In The Mouth of Madness,” a film filled with freaky imagery that takes a look at sanity, what it means within society, and the loss of it. As a whole, it’s a film that deserves more attention.
Biggest Scare: A dark road. A kid on a bike. A freaky old man on a bike. Yup, it still haunts us to this day nearly 25 years later!
