What a fabulous concept and great new way to intertwine a common theme. The use of audio was superb, transitions were fluid, and the focus always maintained the direction the maker was going for. The only qualm I saw was In The Mouth of Madness needed more focus to even out the ordeal. There was a cut during the ITMOM segments that was abrupt and felt too rushed at one part. ITMOM needed more room to breathe and if another 5-10 minutes were added I'd think we'd see an even tighter film. Great job nonetheless, absolutely fun to watch. The use of the Beach Boys soundtrack made this all the more interesting and it benefited using it for transitions.

A/V: Video & audio quality great for all three films, no problems here.

Editing: Mostly seamless, perhaps cut a little too quickly once or twice but nothing that stands out to make it obvious this is a fanedit. Great addition of a new soundtrack that works surprisingly well. I felt that the audio levels between The Mist & Deep Rising were occasionally slightly off. But I don't have the best TV so can't comment further.

Narrative/Enjoyment: Very well crafted story. In the Mouth of Madness serves as a precursor for the stories of The Mist & Deep Rising. The use of voiceovers from ITMOM was well done. Edit is well paced as well. My main criticism would be that a little too much time was spent on The Mist, I feel more could've been cut to streamline the edit. And that more scenes from ITMOM could've been included.

Overall, a really great job with this edit JobWillins, it's very impressive to stitch together 3 different films from 3 different directors, yet have a cohesive and enjoyable story.

We'll have fun fun til the monster takes you away. Three completely different movies yet the same. Great storytelling. Downloaded watched and ignored the things I needed to do until the end of this edit. Appropriate Beach Boys songs at the right moment(s). The Mist integrates nice with The Deep and The Mouth of Madness as a precursor of everything, nice. I will rewatch a few more times. Thanks for the fun

I love everything about this. Such a brilliant idea.

In terms of story telling, the movies fold together much better and more balanced than expected. The climax was powerful and really well executed. The sound editing was great... I don't know how anyone thought to combine cosmic horror with the Beach Boys, but it was absolutely perfect.

Great job.

My expectations were pretty low with this edit taking three mediocre films and weaving them together with a cohesive narrative and making it watchable I thought couldn't be possible... but I was gladly proven wrong. JobWillins pulls off an impressive job adding much more style with the songs and editing that it really enhances the themes and narrative for all three movies. The montage sequences at the beginning and the end was also fantastic. The juggling of all three narratives was well handled though The Mist did get a bit more spotlight then the other two movies but I feel like that was the right choice as the emotional core of the movie was there. My only nitpick for this edit would be the mid credit scene where the 3 survive from Deep Rising and make it to the island- though its a doomed survival I still would've preferred for the scene to be cut and imply their doomed lives on the ship in the end montage. Overall this edit was fantastic fanmix and an easy recommend.
