In the Mouth of Madness

 (1994)

In the Mouth of Madness Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Sutter Cane is this century's most widely read author and his novels have been translated into 18 different languages, spawning a billion dollar industry. When Cane vanishes just days before he's expected to deliver his last manuscript, his publisher hires John Trent to investigate his disappearance. Trent believe at first it's an ill conceived publicity stunt--until he and Linda Styles, Cane's editor, travel to New England. There, they wind up in a town that cannot be found on any ordinary map- called Hobbs End, a fictional village that exists only in Cane's novels. Has the investigation unearthed a fantasy world or has reality blended with the macabre imagination of Sutter Cane?

In the Mouth of Madness Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Gary B. Kibbe has been Carpenter's director of photography on almost every film since Prince of Darkness, although Carpenter is known for taking a strong hand in the technical element of all his films. Kibbe's contribution to the look of ITMOM is difficult to assess, for reasons discussed in connection with the commentary by him and Carpenter. However, I have seen ITMOM many times, from theatrical release through various video manifestations, and I am satisfied that the presentation on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is a superior and faithful rendition of the film's original anamorphic 35mm photography.

Detail is plentiful, black levels and contrast are appropriate and colors are subtle and well-saturated. ITMOM has many scenes where darkness is required, e.g., in Trent's cell or when Sutter Cane shows Trent and Styles the wooden enclosures barely holding back the "Old Ones" from our world. Too much light or an overabundance of shadow detail would compromise the effect. As with the film's editing style, what you don't or can't quite see is more unsettling than what you see all too clearly.

The film's natural grain pattern is visible if you look closely, but it is exceedingly fine. No signs of filtering or other untoward digital manipulation were visible, nor did I detect any compression artifacts (the average bitrate is on the low side at 22.92 Mbps, but the large black bars are partly responsible). This is an effective presentation—I almost said "pleasing", but that's not the right word for a film like ITMOM.


In the Mouth of Madness Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

ITMOM arrived early in the era of discrete multi-channel digital formats, but as far as I know, it did receive a DTS 5.1 mix. On Blu-ray, its 5.1 mix is presented as lossless DTS-HD MA. Carpenter has always used sound to great effect for "gotcha!" moments, and he does so here too. He also reuses some of The Thing's creepy rustles, crackles and other creature effects for the Old Ones. Specific effects (breaking glass, pounding on doors, barking of attack dogs, a shotgun blast, the sound of baseball cards folded in bicycle wheels) register forcefully with solid impact.

The surrounds are used for a more subtle presence, especially in environments like Arcane Publishing, the deserted streets of Hobb's End, the asylum where Trent is held or the inner chambers of the ominous cathedral where Sutter Cane finishes his manuscript. The surrounds also help expand the musical score by Carpenter and Jim Lang, of which the most memorable portion is the suitably apocalyptic heavy metal tune that opens and closes the film.
