In the Mouth of Madness is probably my favorite at this point. I think Carpenter did a good homage and the little things you see as that homage to Lovecraft are neat. And I've always been a Sam Neill fan. I mean I did see it in the theater when it came out and I do own the DVD so...
I never got that far LOL. I will haev to try it again, but I think I might have gotten through the first segment, but its been over 10 years so I can't remember exactly.
Necronomicon is definite cheese, I guess I just have a liking for stuff like that. Though the last segment, which was really why I recommended it, was the best.
I like Del Toro's work and I think Pan Labyrinth was truly amazing and probably his best work to date. So I think that he could do ATMOM, but the source material I think is just too difficult to translate to film, but if it could be done I think Del Toro is one of the few that could do it.
As for ATMOM, I hesitate to think what Del Toro would make that look like, assuming its his version you are referring to. While he certainly has a flair for the odd, its too whimsical for my tastes. Thats also the reason why I wasn't too thrilled when I heard he was supposed to do the Hobbitt.
I think the Hobbitt will be good. I'm looking forward to it, especially to see how they do Smaug and the Shape-shifter.
