** Well, that's how many folks claim to follow Christianity as part of their identity/culture/upbringing. How many of them actually *believe* is what matters in this case.

** Cane himself has one, in the form a monster on the back of his head that's only shown once, possibly placed there to hint [[HumanoidAbomination at his true nature]].

* AlienGeometries: When Linda Styles investigates the interior of Sutter Cane's (who is basically an amalgam of Stephen King and H.P. Lovecraft) evil church in Hobb's End, she opens a door to find a small unoccupied room with a typewriter. After she turns around and opens the door again, it's now a giant room with Caine typing in the far corner.

to:

* AffablyEvil: Sutter Cane is rather polite and soft-spoken for a MadArtist hellbent on [[RealityWarper destroying reality]] as we know it. He shrugs off most of Trent's insults and [[spoiler:gives him a chance to escape before he releases the Old Ones. Of course, in that case, he needed him alive so he could deliver the manuscript.]]

* HumanoidAbomination: It's pretty safe to say that Sutter Cane is no longer entirely human by the time Trent finds him. His [[RealityWarper reality warping]] powers along with his RedRightHand when he [[spoiler:shows Linda the manuscript]] kinda gives this away.

* AnythingButThat: "Oh, no. Not Music/TheCarpenters, too." Also a more subtle bit of SelfDeprecation, considering the director of this movie is Creator/JohnCarpenter.

* LovecraftCountry: Hobb's End. The film is inspired by, and contains ShoutOut after ShoutOut to Creator/HPLovecraft. Hell, a nightmare sequence even has a ContinuityCameo from [[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu]].

The third installment of Creator/JohnCarpenter's [[ThematicSeries "Apocalypse Trilogy"]] (preceded by ''[[Film/TheThing1982 The Thing]]'' and ''Film/PrinceOfDarkness''), ''In the Mouth of Madness'' explores reality, fiction, and the thin, horrific line that separates the two.

* ArtisticLicenseReligion: Overlapping with WritersCannotDoMath. Sutter Cane tries to convince John Trent that his horror books will to all intents and purposes become the new reality [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve because his readers will believe in it]], boasting that he has more followers than people who believe in Literature/TheBible and that his books have been translated into 18 languages. There are around 2 billion Christians in the world and the Bible has actually been translated into either hundreds or thousands of languages depending on how you measure it.
