November 6, 2018
This is one of the best Lovecraft adaptations committed to film and it's not even based on any of his works!
November 2, 2018
The most simplified stories are often the best ones...it's not just an entertaining Twilight Zone-esque film, you can really tell that Carpenter and De Luca were trying to create something different.

In the Mouth of Madness is another marvelous work of art by John Carpenter, albeit a lesser known work.

Filmmaker Carpenter, working from Michael De Luca's screenplay, kicks John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness with a striking (and engrossing) in-media-res opening that immediately captures the viewer's interest and attention...

We've all seen monsters and murders on the screen before, but what's terrifying is not understanding the very nature of the reality that you occupy.

[The] movie has a lot to say about the dangers of cultural obsession and what happens when you give yourself over to the creators you idolize.
September 6, 2018
In the Mouth of Madness features some notable special effects and maintains some of its unsettling atmosphere thanks to its subversive, cerebral ideas.

Chillingly blurs the lines between truth and fantasy, between logic and the malevolently illogical.

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

October 29, 2015
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.

Finely attuned to the disquieting realm of the irrational.

November 5, 2002
Things aren't always pleasant in the mind of John Carpenter. But the guy is incapable of making an uninteresting entry into the horror genre. Social satire mixed with gore makes for a pretty fun time.
