‘Mouth’ speaks of predictability
By Joel Strauch
Film Critic
“In the Mouth of Madness” is <
fun horror film, but it doesn’t spit ou
any scary surprises.
The plot is interesting and hard t(
predict for a while, but the end of th<
film becomes so obvious it is almos
a disappointment.
Sutter Cane (Jurgen Prochnow) ii
a best-selling novelist with a distri
bution so large that he makes Stephei
King look like Richard Bachman.

His novels have also been found to
have a profound effect on readers.
People have been going crazy in an
i ticipation for his new novel, “In the
t Mouth of Madness.”
But the author disappears just be
i fore he is expected to deliver his
: latest manuscript. Hispublisher, Jack
t son Harglow (Charlton Heston), hires
John Trent (Sam Neill) to investi
5 gate.
But after Trent and Cane’s editor,
i Linda Styles (Julie Carmen), travel
to Hobb’s End, they find themselves
trapped in the pages of Cane’s newest
novel and face the horrors of Cane’s
warped imagination.
The two are unsure if they have
found some new reality, or if Cane
has been modifying their reality with
his writing.
Trent has no control over what
will happen to him and realizes it. His
learned helplessness passes apathy
on to the audience and the movie
decrescendos into mediocrity.

about a month and a half.”
This sort of creative spurt is not
unusual to McClain, who said her
method of writing tends to be a bit
erratic and difficult to explain.
“I don’t know what happens to
me,” she said. “Usually, I’ll just be
doing something like driving or walk
ing or doing housework and I’ll get
an idea.”
Ideas, however, don’t always come
together. Overworked ideas tend to
self-destruct, she said. As a result,
most of her songs tend to be some
what spontaneous and unpolished.
“If I try too hard,” she said, “then
it just seems to mess it all up.”
The songs she does complete tend
to fall into the category of sentimen
tal folk music. Songs about child
hood, love and faith are common on
McClain’s latest album.
“I’m trying to say something posi
tive with the songs, and not just (com
I plain) about stuff, which I think I
' used to do a lot of,” she said.
“I think I was a lot more mixed up
about things when I was younger.
Things are a little clearer now, but
not totally clear.”
Lots of things have changed
throughout McClain’s life in music.
She first picked up a guitar at the age
of 12.
“I heard this song called ‘Suzanne’
by Leonard Cohen,” she said, “and I
still don’t know what it means, but I
really wanted to sing it. Of course, I
needed a guitar, too.”
Her stage career began at age 15 in
the Gaslight, a now-defunct melo
drama theater.
“It had an open mike night every
Monday, and there were just tons of
great folk musicians hanging around
down there,” she said.
“It was amazing. There were so
many good musicians in Lincoln at
the time. I was really young and
really green, and I can’t even remem
ber being up on stage half the time
because I was so nervous.”
Her first real musical job was at
the Freedom Lounge, a place McClain
described as “kind ofseedy.”
“It was really dark and it had this
long, skinny bar,” she said. “I got
paid $125 to perform six nights for
four hours each night. I thought it was
a fortune.”
Since then, McClain has spent time
on several stages at local venues in
both Lincoln and Omaha.
Becoming a major success is a
prospect she is still a bit wary about.
“If I could do folk music as a full
time job, I would,” McClain said.
“But it would have to be really low
key, because I would have to be able
to see my kids all the time. I don’t
know how realistic that is.”
“If it happens, it happens. I’ll just
keep on doing what I’ve been doing ”
Getting a band together is another
goal McClain hopes to achieve. But
that aspiration may have to wait, too.
“At my age, I have kids and all
these other responsibilities, and I meet
other musicians who have the same
restraints on their time,” she said.
“It’s kind of hard to find the time to
get together.”
Challenges like these are things to
which McClain seems to be accus
tomed. Whether it’s finding a band or
a hamster, she takes it all in stride.
“I have to relax,” she said. “It’s
hard to write when you don’t feel
completely in tune with yourself.”

Sweeping music, great costumes, and
overall, a feeling that you would be
seeing its star again.
Remember when some muscle
bound guy named Arnold
Schwarzenegger starred in “Conan
the Barbarian?”
It was a Marvel Comics hero on
the big-screen, headed for revenge
against Thulsa Doom (James Earl
Jones), the snake-god that killed his
parents and enslaved Conan.
The film is a wee bit long, and is
not for the weak-stomached (lotsa
blood, giant bleeding snakes, etc.),
but is an incredible film nonetheless.
The real question here is: does Ah
nold say “I’ll be back” at any time
during the film?
