The world is literally going crazy for the work of horror novelist Sutter Cane who has mysteriously vanished. With the release of his newest novel rapidly approaching, Cane’s publishers recruit insurance investigator John Trent to determine whether or not his absence is a publicity stunt or a genuine cause for concern. Trent’s efforts to find Cane soon lead him on a mind-bending trip to Hobb’s End, a mysterious little town with something deeply evil lurking beneath its cozy exterior, an evil that leaves Trent questioning the very nature of reality itself.

Over the course of his unofficial “Apocalypse” trilogy, John Carpenter has regaled us with tales of shape-shifting aliens and demonic entities threatening to break loose and destroy life as we know it

18 Things We Learned from John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness Commentary

“Sometimes it’s fun to do something a little darker.”

It’s John Carpenter’s birthday this week, so of course we gave a listen to one of the few commentary tracks he’s done that we haven’t covered yet. (And now we know why.)

In the Mouth of Madness (1994)

Commentator: John Carpenter (director), Gary B. Kibbe (cinematographer)

1. Carpenter himself refers to this as the third film in his unofficial “Apocalypse Trilogy” which also includes The Thing and Prince of Darkness.

2. The opening credits sequence was filmed by the second-unit at a printing press in Toronto, Canada.

3. The asylum exterior/main hall is actually a water reclamation plant off Lake Ontario, while the basement cells were built on a set.

4. Sam Neill, who plays John Trent, was cut by broken glass in the scene where his cell door window is shattered. “He wasn’t too happy about it.”

5. Neill is apparently “the world’s biggest fan

The Academy has invited 683 new members to join their ranks

Yesterday afternoon, the ranks of Oscar voters grew substantially, with some welcome diversity added in for good measure. Yes, the Academy sent out invitations for new membership about 24 hours ago, with 683 names getting the coveted tap on the proverbial shoulder. Again, what made it so interesting to note is that AMPAS seemed to actively seek out women, minorities, and younger artists, hoping to make the demographics of the Academy slightly less centered on older white males. It won’t suddenly change the makeup of the Oscar nominations or upend how the Academy Awards go down next year, but it’s a slow step in the right direction, and that’s worth applauding for sure. As you can see below, in addition to basically all of last year’s Oscar winners, the new members are a diverse slate. Among the names you’ll see in the acting branch now are John Boyega,

How the Academy Pushed the Diversity Needle with 683 Member Invites

How the Academy Pushed the Diversity Needle with 683 Member Invites
“Introducing the Academy class of 2016,” reads the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences website announcement of its invited new members Wednesday. And while joining that august organization is a singular honor, many say they were surprised to learn of their inclusion — mainly because they hadn’t applied for membership. Traditionally, that’s a laborious process that can take years before you get recommended by peers, vetted by your branch, and finally invited. Every year it’s a shock that someone like, say Tina Fey, IFC’s Arianna Bocco, last year’s Oscar-winner Margaret Sixel (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), or Oscar marketer Lisa Taback, wasn’t already a member.

Do You Read Sutter Cane?: John Carpenter’s Lovecraftian Opus

  • SoundOnSight
In a padded cell adorned with crudely drawn crosses resides John Trent. Trent has gone so far as to not only decorate his new insane asylum home with crosses but himself as well — they run up and down his mental patient uniform and dance across his very face. Outside the asylum, the world is going to hell, and John Trent knows it. When the kindly Dr. Wrenn comes to talk with Trent, Trent tells him the cold hard truth: “Every species can smell its own extinction.”

Thus begins In the Mouth of Madness, the third and final film in director John Carpenter’s “Apocalypse Trilogy.” The trilogy contained his films The Thing, Prince of Darkness, and this film, released in 1995. The three movies are, according to Carpenter, “in one way or another, about the end of things, about the end of everything, the world we know, but in different ways.

LatinoBuzz: See Julie Carmen in 'Dawn Patrol' Opening Friday June 5th

Directed by Daniel Petrie Jr., "Dawn Patrol" marks the return to the big screen of one of the most important Latino talents of the past few decades, Julie Carmen.

Scott Eastwood stars as a young surfer-turned-Marine who must confront the consequences of his terrible decisions. In her "Dawn Patrol" portrayal as the enigmatic Laura River, Julie Carmen holds Scott Eastwood hostage as he recalls the twists and turns of how and why he murdered her son. Throughout the film they give alternate Rashomon-like accounts exposing the xenophobia and racism that rips a remote, multicultural surf city apart. Laura explodes with the rage and confusion of a mother confronting her child's killer, and plots a haunting, lasting revenge.

"I was directed in a style inspired by Latin American magical realism and that contrasts with how Scott Eastwood, Rita Wilson, Jeff Fahey, Kim Matula, and Chris Borchu tell their story, in an ultra realistic way. " said Julie Carmen about working on "Dawn Patrol.

"During times such as ours, we need movies like 'Dawn Patrol' to dissect the consequences of killing rather than just use death as a plot point. We're hoping to open a dialogue about xenophobia, racism, revenge and misogyny, which are dealt with head on. There are four fabulous female roles, all broken by violence but my character carries the rage." she concluded.

Alchemy will release the film in select theaters on June 5th and it'll hit iTunes a couple weeks after the theatrical release

Skate Bros Face Murder Drama in Dawn Patrol

Skate Bros Face Murder Drama in Dawn Patrol
In a laughable scene in Dawn Patrol, John (Scott Eastwood) passes a joint to his brother (Chris Brochu) while riding a skateboard, and director Daniel Petrie Jr. stages the moment in drawn-out slow motion, as if he expected it to appear as a SportsCenter highlight. This kind of tacky, on-the-nose treatment is representative of Petrie’s choices throughout the movie — though, in his defense, the screenplay he’s working from (co-written by Rachel Long and Brian Pittman) is a mess in its own right.

Following a clumsy opening in which John, clad in Marine clothing, recounts his story to a woman (Julie Carmen) as she holds him at gunpoint, the movie flashes back to the summer of 2008. Petrie takes his time detailing the habits of John’s bea...

Film Review: ‘Last Weekend’

Film Review: ‘Last Weekend’
The lifestyles of the rich and petulant require a certain amount of critical distance to be relatable — or even watchable — to unaffiliated viewers. There’s a bit of that perspective in “Last Weekend,” albeit not nearly enough to make this Lake Tahoe-set seriocomedy a more insightful than insufferable portrait of the unsympathetically self-absorbed. Starring Patricia Clarkson as persnickety matriarch presiding over a holiday gathering of bratty offspring and their variably long-suffering partners, the pic reps a smoothly crafted debut feature for co-directors Tom Dolby and Tom Williams. But its eventual reach for warm-and-fuzzy emotional catharsis rings hollow among characters that never become more than disagreeably shallow products of unexamined privilege. Prospects look minor for Sundance Select’s planned late-summer theatrical and VOD release.

A Look Back At: Fright Night II!!

This may be a bit confessionary, but the movie Fright Night played an integral role in my upbringing. Chris Sarandon was undoubtedly the man who pushed me through puberty, and Fright Night completely changed the way I look at vampire films. Had it not been for the perfection that is Let The Right One In, I’d have no problem declaring Fright Night to be my favorite vampire flick of all time. (Okay, it might have to fight with Near Dark, but that is beside the point.) However, with the success of every original film, Hollywood wastes no time generating a sequel. Three years after the success of the first film, Tommy Lee Wallace took over the directing reigns from Tom Holland and created Fright Night II. Following the footsteps of most sequels, Fright Night II is a sophomore slump; definitely not the brilliant piece of work that its predecessor was,

John Carpenters Cult Classic In the Mouth of Madness Coming to Blu-ray

Do you read Sutter Cane? Merely weeks ago I was hunting around the attic for my VHS copy of John Carpenter's often forgotten horror classic 'In the Mouth of Madness' to enjoy. Why? Well, because it's not available here in the UK on DVD or Blu-ray. But perhaps with the news today that the 1995 flick starring Sam Neill ('Jurassic Park'), Julie Carmen, David Warner ('The Omen') and Charlton Heston ('Planet of the Apes') will be finally making an appearance on Blu-ray across the Us from 15 October this will hopefully mean a short wait before we see it hop across the pond and land on UK shelves. No word as yet on special features or artwork but these will be revealed nearer release....

MoreHorror March Request Month: In the Mouth of Madness

  • MoreHorror
by Mike Pickle, MoreHorror.com

For this week's request we're going back to 1995 for John Carpenter's atmospheric mind-bender In the Mouth of Madness starring Sam Neill in one of his most memorable performances. This film was the 3rd entry in what Carpenter calls his Apocalypse Trilogy along with The Thing (1982) and Prince of Darkness (1987). It's definitely reminiscent of The Thing with it's amazing creature effects, but what sets this film apart is the sheer abundance of assorted horrors. Being set in a town that doesn't really exist gives Carpenter plenty of room to work his magic and boy does he take liberties.

The film opens with John Trent (Sam Neill) being committed to an asylum. He fights and pleads with the doctor and staff that he is not insane. A senior doctor arrives to analyze him and the story behind John's current condition begins to unfold in flashbacks. Turns
