Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
One wonders how In the Mouth of Madness might have turned out if the script had contained even a little more wit and ambition.
| Original Score: 2/4
Confusing, weird, and not very involving.
Uninvolving, abysmally scripted horror picture.
Cheesy horror celebrating the power of cheesy horror, while pretending to be appalled.
| Original Score: 1/4
| Original Score: C
Carpenter can't establish the kind of welling dread that Lovecraft conjured, so he shifts to makeup and pyrotechnics.

Not Carpenter's worst, but it tries.
| Original Score: 2/5
Limp performances and ludicrous special effects remove this study of reality from any sense of it.
Eventually falls apart because of its erratic plot and gaps in logic.
After awhile, the redundancies begin to hamper the narrative, and it becomes rather tiresome.
The names are big, but the payoff is small.
Too all over the place to be effectively scary. I suppose it's an accurate portrait of insanity, but too hard to follow.
| Original Score: 4/5
Finely attuned to the disquieting realm of the irrational.
| Original Score: B
| Original Score: +1 out of -4..+4
