In the Mouth of Madness

Directed by John Carpenter

Regarded as John Carpenter’s last great film, In the Mouth of Madness (1994) follows John Trent, an insurance investigator who is sent to investigate the strange disappearance of hack horror writer, Sutter Cane. John soon finds himself trapped in the sleepy fictional town of Hobb’s End, surrounded by the evil creepy characters from Sutter Cane’s books. In the Mouth of Madness is a film that perfectly captures a period in time where horror movies and Stephen King ruled pop culture.

Its celebration of all things horror related, including Lovecraftian creature designs, and the fan culture surrounding horror at the time, combined with all the best elements of John Carpenter’s previous work moulded into one film, make this movie a great choice from the HOME Young Film Programmers for the FilmFear programme.

HOME Young Film Programmers is an 18 month project for 18-25 year olds who programme quarterly screenings at HOME with the aim to broaden and diversify HOME’s young audiences. During the project, the group develops skills in how to curate a fresh and exciting programme of screenings and wrap-around activity, and also gain industry skills and learn all about the profession.
