‘In Search of Darkness Part II’
I dare you to find a horror fan not in love with John Carpenter’s work. Whether you are here for his creepy horror scores or much like Jordan Peele, spend your time reminding the youth that he’s one the greatest of all time, you are somewhere on this bandwagon.
Most of us have lost countless nights trying to figure out what our favorite Carpenter movie is. With a resume that includes Halloween (1978), The Fog (1980), The Thing (1982), and Christine (1983), it’s no easy task. However, one 1994 supernatural flick is often unjustly left out of the equation. Which is why we’re giddy that this forgotten gem, In The Mouth Of Madness, is now streaming.
