    A great horror movie for its time. Movies that have followed definitely took some away from this one. Haunting images and the final shot turned this average horror into a very good movie.

    Jacob's Ladder is definitely one of the best psychological thrillers out there. It's creepy, frightening, mysterious, impressive and magnificent. A masterpiece of the genre.

    I had heard great things about Jacob’s Ladder, but it ended up being a disappointment. The initial scenes were very promising (the subway one is great) and Tim Robbins is the right guy for the role, but eventually the film becomes an inconsistent mess (I would say that the bathtub scene is the turning point), that seems to make things up as it goes along to keep the spectator interested. The scenes that are meant to be creepy or scary…

    De culto absoluto, tanto por la estética del Nueva York decadente como los debrayes a la Silent Hill: la secuencia del manicomio es hermosa. Arrancaban bien los 90's.

    Arguably the film that kickstarted the psychological thriller genre. There are many copy cats and wannabes, but Jacob's Ladder is the one that most people remember today. It still holds up incredibly well and left me guessing until the very end. It's a shame that director Adrian Lyne practically fell off the face of the earth after this movie. Along with Fatal Attraction, he was a master at getting to what thrillers should be all about..... thrilling!!

    Very confusing. The story wasn't told chronologically, and it was hard for me to tell what was happening when. A bit of a trip.
