Day 2: In The Mouth of Madness (1994)

Why I love it:

  • Great plot that expertly interweaves fictional literature with reality.
  • The storyline deals with the underworld, the invocation of demons and the myth about the “old ones”– a common theme in spiritually-based horror films.
  • Sam Neill plays the main character and he is convincing in his role.
  • Great special effects especially for the 90’s.
  • Great plot twists and turns that make it impossible to lose interest.
  • Not just a horror movie, but a psychological thriller.
  • You know a movie is good when you remember the villain’s name: Sutter Cane. “Do you read Sutter Cane?”
