JC's In the Mouth of Madness

It was a terrific first time I've seen it (around 5-6 years ago) but watching it now, I just realized this one is simple masterpiece. Terrific way of storytelling, mixing reality and dream-like stuff, music, directing, and Sam Neill was terrific as usual.
This scene is simply creepy, almost nightmarish...

I'll have to check out The Ward, haven't seen that one yet, but I've heard it was good.
The only Carpenter's movie I dislike was Ghost of Mars. That was really bad, but had some moments. Vampires was at least entertaining and has terrific action scenes. Also, vampires were true monsters in that flick, not all that Twilight shit...

Idea of a movie is ok, but execution was just horrible. If it wasn't for Carpenter's good sense of direction, it would be a total disaster.

Just a boring, dull flop.

I loved the atmosphere. Scene above made me creeps even now, after several watch. That's what I like about Carpenter, he doesn't need much to make scene effective.

If I have to watch a movie about people walking around seeing weird things, can they at least be awake while they act?

and I also liked the story, especially the ending. Movie does however slows down at times and most of those scenes could either be shorter or edited, but story itself worked for me. I don't like when horror is all about gore or bodycount.
oh... The Church... Totally agree there with you. I saw it after I heard many good things about it, but I found it disappointing. Nothing happens for majority of the movie and when things start to happen, movie is over. It was well done, in sense of tech stuff like camera work, score and montage.
