I, Madman (1989)
Critic Reviews for I, Madman
Climaxes in thrillers have gotten pretty standard recently, involving chases and shootouts and a lot of blood. I, Madman has some surprises.
A genuinely moody film, and an exercise in imagination enhanced by the paperback nostalgia of a faded era of strange, adult entertainment
Nifty and draggy in equal measure, this finally goes off the rails but has a fun time getting there.
A passable low-budget horror flick with a winning performance by Jenny Wright (Near Dark).
Audience Reviews for I, Madman
Unique storyline with some random deaths. not too bad for a casual horror film marathon
The story is an interesting attempt to change up what is really nothing more than a standard slasher movie. The idea that a killer is brought to life by someone reading a book is different than most other ideas I've seen in the slasher genre. Filmed with brown tones, passages from the book are played out on the screen, and then the two worlds begin to merge with some decent stop-motion model effects thrown in for good measure. One of those films I was worried on whether or not I'd enjoy it as much as I did when it was new, but thankfully, it didn't disappoint. Jenny Wright is fun to watch in this ode to the late night B-movie.
