An oddball homage pic to HP Lovecraft, while at the same time spoofing Stephen King.

Despite its otherworldly milieu, "Madness" taps into apocalyptic anxieties about real-world rhetoric - chiefly that it's turning virulent to a point where our collective cultural antibodies can't, or won't, fight off the disease. A fine horror film.

A thinking person's horror picture that dares to be as cerebral as it is visceral.

Horrormeister John Carpenter (of Halloween fame) is back in fine form as a master of suspense and ghoulish fantasy.

A fun, clever horror picture, full of creepy crawlies, things that go bump in the night, and references to everyone from H.P. Lovecraft to Dario Argento.
