I keep forgetting to leave a review of this one, even though I've seen it quite a few times now. Overall I really enjoy it!

There are admittedly some places where the three segments don't really blend as well (the main one that comes to mind is how they're all filmed - it's a bit jarring to go from In the Mouth of Madness to the Mist's occasionally handheld camera work. However, you get used to it as the film goes on.

The use of the Beach Boys' music is honestly the most inspired aspect of this. It helps make the whole thing feel more cohesive, and the songs themselves are well-picked and well-placed, whether it's used for the sake of irony ("Don't Worry Baby"), dark comedy ("Sloop John B") or even in places where the song is in line with the tone ("'Til I Die" and "God Only Knows").

Overall, I highly recommend this. It's an odd concept executed exceptionally well.
