VERDICT – 4/5
1) An insurance investigator is hired by a publishing house to investigate the disappearance of popular (and eccentric) horror novelist, Sutter Cane, and recover the manuscript for Cane’s final novel. The search led him to Hobb’s End, the fictional setting for many of Cane’s works.
2) A meta-horror movie where the book central character finally realizes that he was a character in the book all along.
3) Another John Carpenter homage to H. P. Lovecraft.
“The thing I can’t remember is what came first. Us or the book.”
