In the Mouth of Madness(also known as John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness) is a 1995 horror film (originally intended for a 1994 release) directed by John Carpenter and written by Michael de Luca.
The story follows private investigator John Trent (Sam Neill), whose speciality is insurance fraud. He is called in by a publisher (Charlton Heston) to investigate the alleged disappearance of the phenomenally popular horror novelist, Sutter Cane (Jürgen Prochnow). Having vanished with his most recent novel unfinished, Cane's publisher asks Trent to retrieve the work at stake. Trent thinks the whole thing is a publicity stunt but agrees to take the case.
Trent, accompanied by Cane's editor, Linda Styles (Julie Carmen), eventually tracks the writer to the remote New England town of Hobbs End, previously thought only to exist in Cane's stories. There it soon becomes clear that the wall between fantasy and reality has blurred.
