Drawing from the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness represents a unique kind of horror film – one that manages (or at least dares) to be both cerebral as it is visceral in its content. Visually, it can hold its own among the director’s best work; at the same time, the movie has, in a way, become a endpoint for the director as the quality of his output from here on out (in terms of consistency) has diminished compared to his previous offerings. Previously released on Blu-ray by Warner Brothers, Shout Factory has licensed the film for its “Scream Factory” line and given it the “Collector’s Edition” treatment.
