During the first story "the drowned" Edward De LaPoer is tearing the old library books off the shelves, looking for the necronomicon. The books are covered in dust and cobwebs and have clearly not been disturbed for a long time. But their pages are strangely new and and not in the slightest bit yellowed as one would expect for a collection of very old hardbacks. See more »
There is one thing I have always maintained. If a man's shoe is dirty, you got to wonder about his sole.

So far In the Mouth of Madness is the only film in the Lovecraft tradition worthy of his name
I was at first, very excited about this film due, to the fact that I am a huge fan of H. P. Lovecraft. But after seeing what amounted to a pathetic version of Creepshow, I was very let down. Don't get me wrong, some of the content was worthy enough to be associated with HP, but much of the film was cheesy and not very engrossing. If you wish to see a Lovecraftian style film, check out In the Mouth of Madness. It is INSPIRED by HP, but not related directly to one of his stories.
