Night 30, Eraserhead

31 Nights of Horror, Night 30: Eraserhead

Three sentence review:

This was my first time watching David Lynch’s first full-length, body-horror feature, Eraserhead, and it was every bit as bizarre and anxious as I wanted it to be (I felt puzzled, awe-struck, nervous, and fascinated while watching.) Jack Nance’s “Henry” experiences powerful hallucinations about the girl that lives in his radiator and his neighbor while taking care of his grossly deformed infant. I spent a solid hour after the credits rolled trying to decipher what I had just watched, but It’s not that difficult to comprehend once you realize that Lynch is telling us that human conception is FREAKY and nerve wrecking and beautiful all at once.
