This was a fun one! I think it works at a core level, but I might have liked to see In The Mouth of Madness used more as a framing device since it is so structurally different - Sutter Cane unleashing the horrors that remain relatively off-screen in Carpenter's version with Deep Rising and The Mist then providing the "world descending into chaos" for the audience, which the edit approaches during the tremendous "God Only Knows" sequence. Such a restructuring, however, might have ended up repacing things a bit much and cut too much of the narratives of the latter two instead of letting them all play out together. I love The Beach Boys, and I think it was smart to use audio as a sort of narrative glue bridging the edits... while I enjoy the tonal dissonance, I do wonder if there was a greater reason for it (outside of... y'know, Lovecraft... water... tentacles... beaches). Great work!
