Tibor Takacs's wonderful horror film concerns bookstore employee Virginia (Jenny Wright), who is reading a book called I, Madman by one Malcolm Brand. She soon begins to notice that objects described in the book are starting to pop up in reality, and it's not long before the title madman

(Randall William Cook), a strange doctor patterned after his author, also escapes into the actual world. Soon murders depicted in the book begin to occur, and when the maniac killer--turnabout being fair play--mistakes Virginia for the fictional character who scorned his love, her life is on the

line as well.

As reminiscent of HOUSE OF WAX or FRANKENSTEIN as it is of current-day slasher films, I, MADMAN is a loving salute to the days when movie monsters had hearts. Cook's character has a clear motive for his murders, one that inspires sympathy along with disgust; he's a descendant of the classic horror

films' "misunderstood monster," worthy of our attention and fear. Takacs's lively, sharp direction maintains the suspense and serves up some poetic horror imagery, and the high quality of the acting, photography and lighting all belie the film's low budget.
