John Carpenter's IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS (R, 1995, 95 min)
Carpenter draws his inspiration from Lovecraft's Cthulu mythology and then adds his own twists. John Trent (Sam Neill) is a detective hired to track down the missing horror author Sutter Cane and finds himself in the supposedly fictional town of Hobb's End. He watches the town collapse into madness, murder, and monstrous transformations: the fantastic horrors of Cane's novels played out in front of his eyes.
