Rating:
R
Eraserhead is the debut film of director David Lynch and features a frightening post-apocalyptic reality filled with strange creatures, oppressive cities, and monstrous machines. Henry Spencer (Jack Nance) is an average factory worker in a sprawling industrial town that bears a stronger resemblance to a chemical wasteland than a sparkling metropolis. When his spastic girlfriend, Mary X (Charlotte Stewart), announces her pregnancy, Henry's life suddenly seems to have taken a turn for the better. However, the young couple is ill-prepared for the birth and the consequences that follow. When the baby is born as a hideously deformed mutant, Henry becomes plagued with despair and nightmarish visions. Left to care for the monstrous infant, his reality may prove to be a chaotic prison that even dreams of Heaven won't help Henry escape from. Eraserhead is an angst-filled tale of disconnected people facing a twisted world full of mutants and smog-filled cities which threaten to erase any glimmer of humanity left within them.moreless
