A proper horror film!

"Every species can smell its own extinction. The last ones left won't have a pretty time with it. In ten years, maybe less, the human race will just be a bedtime story for their children. A myth, nothing more."

With the horror scene of the 21st Century plagued by sequels, remakes, dumb teenage protagonists and predictable jump scares, it's refreshing to dabble in genre classics and ... read more

A very good movie

I remember it very well, 20 years ago, for some reasons, I actually saw this flick in the movie theater when it was released. I wonder how I actually ended up watching the damned thing but, back then, I thought it was quite fascinating to behold. Indeed, I was much younger, around 15 years old, I had never seen anything like this and it had quite an impact on me.  Back then, I wasn’t really fam... read more

When popular horror writer Sutter Cane (Jürgen Prochnow) goes missing, his publisher hires investigator John Trent (Sam Neill) to find him. Trent tracks Cane to a small New England town, which is filled with nightmare scenes right out of the author's books. Encountering one gruesome scene after another, Trent wonders if Cane's fans have gone psychotic and begun imitating his writings, or his "novels" are really nonfiction.

2017 Horror Journal (47 movies items)

" I have to applaud Carpenter for his vision and being gutsy enough to even try and get a project like this off the ground, but much like his "Prince Of Darkness", this tale is a little too much all at once and asks the viewer to suspend their disbelief more than most will be able to. There's plenty worth seeing here, but some of it is campy when it shouldn't be, or simply does not achieve the effect it was going for. It's an interesting failure, but still a failure."

" The last well done John Carpenter movie - a good blend of H.P. Lovecraft works and the success of Stephen King combined into one interesting story. Great help from many supporting cult faces and Sam Neill is engaging as a man gone bonkers from reading to much fantasy fiction. Cheap edits and false scares are unnecessary and it would have helped the film enormously if the religion and the background of the unnameable monsters had been better developed as it is clear for fans of Lovecraft but th"

"Viimeisimpiä essential-Carpentereja. Lovecraft on jatkuvasti läsnä ja sen huomaa. Menee näistä klassisista Carpentereista siksi viimeiseksi linnakkeeksi, mutta ansainnee paikkansa. Sam Neilin sekoilua on oikein viihdyttävää seurata."

"25.1. Eldritch Horrorin pelisessiot venyivät taas vaihteeksi, milloin illan sai päättää In the Mouth of Madness. Tämä elokuva muistuttaa, että lovecraftmaisia kauhuelokuvia on vain liian vähän. "

My Movie Diary 2016 (235 movies items)

" 9.16 A best-selling horror novelist patterned after Stephen King is discovered to have gotten his malevolent inspiration from a real, mysterious town. Sam Niell is an investigator who gets into the thick of the madness. Its your trademark John Carpenter movie with lots of 90s-style special effects."

"7/9 A delayed publishing of a famed horror writer's latest novel creates riots and makes people act crazy. The writes has gone missing and Sam Neil is sent to find out by his publishers where he might be hiding. The evidence leads to a forgotten small town which shares some extreme similarities with the horror writer's writings. The atmospheric movie at first seems eerie and actually somewhat frightening, but as it goes on, delves more and more into some Twilight Zone-category, but it was okay,"
