Jacob's Ladder (1990)
Dir- Adrian Lyne
Jacob Singer is a postal worker, who is haunted by what may or may not be drug-induced nightmares, the result of a bizarre experiment during the Vietnam War. Jacob is experiencing some truly nightmarish visions, one of the most notable being a mad hospital with deformed souls and equally grotesque doctors. Somewhat confusing in its eerie nightmare vision and gory visuals, Jacob's Ladder delivers a unique trip into the world of a man who may or may not be fully sane. The finale is very creepy and has "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" style twist ending. What is certain is that Jacob's Ladder is neither mild nor passive. It is shocking and brilliant in its use of gory visuals and nightmarish visions that will leave the viewer reeling in their sanity.
