In the Mouth of Madness

Sutter Cane's (Jurgen Prochnow's) power extends beyond his ability to write, and everything he "created" becomes real. John Trent (Sam Neill), everyone except Cane, and the events of the movie up to this point are all part of his new novel, appropriately titled In the Mouth of Madness, which presumably drives readers completly insane, including Trent, who is sent to the asylum after killing someone with an axe. The film ends as Sutter Cane's apocalyptic vision is finally realized, leaving Trent one of the few "normal" humans left in the world, as he walks into a movie theater, sits down to watch the events of the entire movie as if they were fiction in the movie itself, and begins laughing maniacally.
Thanks, Andy K!
