Him, Madman

First Appearance: I, Madman (1989)

A woman who wants to be an actress works in a used book store, dates a stereotypical detective and really gets into the pulp horror novels she reads gets menaced by a mutilated maniacal mutilator straight out of the book she's currently reading. Is he real? Is she actually killing off all the annoying people in her life? Is it the insane author of the novels who died in the 50s? Who cares! Surprisingly good flick. I also just found out that it was made by the same guy who made one of my favorite movies, THE GATE. It would make a half decent double feature with In the Mouth of Madness.
The movie was originally going to be called HARDCOVER, good thing it wasn't. I never would have bothered trying to find Hardcover.
