It's episode 273...and I'm not insane, you hear me! I'M NOT INSANE!
In The Mouth Of Madness (1994) tells the story of John Trent, sent to investigate the disappearance of horror novelist Sutter Cane, and recover the manuscript for his latest novel. As an epidemic of violent behaviour spreads across the land, Trent tracks Cane to Hobb’s End, a town previously thought to exist only in Cane’s novels. There, Trent will discover unimaginable horrors that have the potential to rewrite reality in terrible ways.
Cosmic Horror season kicks off with a Carpenter love letter to HP Lovecraft. Expect tension and tentacles, madness and monsters, plus an extended discussion of whether or not it’s ok to only give an axe murderer a bucket to use as a toilet.
All of which leads to one question: How would you survive?
Whatever happens, one thing's for sure: Every species can sense its own extinction.
Next time, Cosmic Horror season continues with The Color Out Of Space (2019).
