In the Mouth of Madness (1994) Review:

after The Thing. I always found the title for this one really appropriate, for this movie is really pure madness.

Not to spoil the scenario, the movie is roughly about a guy, John Trent, who gradually finds himself inside the story of a horror book. That is just the beginning, however, for the story of In the Mouth of Madness is, without exaggerating, one of the richest in the horror genre, with an abundance of surprises, depths, and twists.

Set in the universe of H.P Lovecraft filled with slimy monsters, the epic journey of John Trent is punctuated by nightmarish scenes realized with beautiful practical special effects. The acting by Sam Neil (Jurrasic Park, Event Horizon) is excellent and a great example of madness in the movie.

This movie, which concludes what Carpenter calls his Apocalypse Trilogy (along with The Thing and Prince of Darkness), is a masterpiece, usually appreciated by horror fans, but hugely underrated by the wider audience. I really don’t understand why it has got only 47% on Rotten Tomatoes.
