Mother’s Day. The time of the year to show your Mom how much she means to you by getting her some cheap flowers from the grocery store. But Mother’s Day is also the time of the year to remember that scene from John Carpenter’s In The Mouth Of Madness where that creepy little girl says this:
Yes, I know – that’s a random clip to play to correspond with Mother’s Day. But, I was giving In The Mouth Of Madness a re-watch the other night and that scene always creeped me out. Maybe it’s the way she takes that little pause before she says “Today is Mommy’s Day” in that unsettling whisper.
Lots of things creep me out about this movie though (that bike scene forever haunts me), but that little girl needed more screen time. Nevertheless – kudos to In the Mouth Of Madness for being, in my opinion, one of Carpenter’s most underrated films (albeit the plot is a bit of a mess). And an early kudos to the mothers out there (including mine) who tolerated us watching movies like this!
