29. ‘In the Mouth of Madness’ (1994)
Memorable quotes: “What scares me about Cane’s work is what might happen if reality shared his point of view.”
“The thing I can’t remember is what came first: us or the book.”
Scare factor: An evil creepiness seeps through the whole movie and continues building throughout, which sets the stage for an inordinate amount of legitimately scary jump-out-of-your-seat moments. Add in a healthy dose of grotesque monsters and you have the recipe for an all-time scare fest. If you ever felt guilty about not reading enough books, this film will make you feel better. Sort of.
