Jacob's Ladder ★★★★

Jacob’s Ladder creeped me WAYYYY THE F OUT when I was a kid. I had recurring nightmares about this film and some of its imagery throughout the 90’s and I’d wake up screaming in a sweat drenched terror, yet I could never turn it off when I’d come across it on cable. 

I love 90’s psychological thrillers that veer into horror territory, and I’m so glad this has remained a cult classic over the years with a growing fan base and rather impressive influence on numerous films, television shows, video games, and music.
Hopefully my suppressed nightmare stays that way.

Cool beans, yo.
