FLASHBACK 2010 PICK – 10/3/10 – OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #3 – Jacob’s Ladder

 

Jacob's Ladder

Like many of the movies I’ll put on here, this is one of those “dividing” films, where people either LOVE it, or HATE it. The opinions rarely stretch into the middle area. Me, personally, I love this movie. Most people would say it’s more of a disturbing mind-f*@# than it is horror movie, but to me that’s one and same. What is horror, if not something that gets under your skin and truly makes you feel disturbed? This movie disturbed me. The surreal images placed throughout are one of a kind, notably the fast-twitching, wobble-head guy that haunted my dreams for a year. Then of course there’s the bizarre dancing scene that I still can’t quite get my head around… Is that a tail? What’s it doing? Really? Ugh. And don’t freak out when you see Macaulay Culkin is in it. He doesn’t put his hands on his cheeks and scream. He’s plays a dead kid. So there’s that. Overall it’s a great twisted flick, and easily has one of the single best closing scenes in a film, ever. It sticks with you long after the credits roll.
