MASTERS OF HORROR: CIGARETTE BURNS (2005) *** ½

Director John (Halloween) Carpenter returns to In the Mouth of Madness territory with this tale co-written by Drew McWeeny (AKA: Moriarty from Aintitcoolnews.com). This time instead of a book that drives people crazy, it’s a rare film. Norman (Boondock Saints) Reedus stars as a film buff who is hired by millionaire Udo (Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein) Kier to find the lost film at any cost. Besides In the Mouth of Madness, it also borrows heavily from 8 MM and The Ring as well, but at least it’s gory as all get out. Among the highlights is a pretty good severed head, a vicious eye stabbing and the show stopping scene in which someone’s innards gets ran through a film projector. Now that’s what I call gut wrenching cinema!
