A deranged nightmare of a film. The surrealism is very much like a bad nightmare. Everything about it is sickly, dark, cancerous and disgusting. It is highly original and worth watching. No one can really match David Lynch's style.

Utterly bizarre but curiously fascinating oddity from David Lynch. Some may find it's deliberately unfathomable surrealism exasperating, but the powerful imagery alone makes it worth a look.

Disturbing and shocking, but also unique

David Lynch you are a genius.

Eraserhead tells the story of Henry Spencer who lives in an industrial wasteland where he must contend with a new, strange baby, an unreliable girlfriend, a beautiful girl across the hall and the lady in the radiator.

Never before have I seen a movie that disturbed me, grossed me out and left me confused, but for some reason I can't stop thinking about it. Eraserhead is both shocking and unique, as this movie drives into the mind of a man who's having a living nightmare of rising a child that he never asked for, the environment that he's living in and just how unhappy he is. What David Lynch is so good at doing is making he's movies feel like a nightmare or a dream, just by how it's directed and shot creates the effect perfectly, and Eraserhead is the i...

'The feel-good movie of the year!'

This movie is ugly. Not in an artistic way. Not in a fascinating way. Just in an ugly way.

This was David Lynch's cinematic debut and it really shows. The direction is poor, it looks like the editor fell asleep and the acting consists mainly of people sitting down and staring at each other.
Jack Nance looked like he didn't know he was in a movie. I've never seen a performance more unsure about itself.

Nothing in this movie is near comprehensible or makes any sense. Don't get me wrong, I like artistic and intellectual films, but the intellect only works in the story if someone else than the director is able to make some freaking connections. I'm not the kind of guy who likes to laugh at things that are intended to be serious, but who can't crack up at a person turning a bar on a wal...

Eraserhead review

An eclectic film that can be enjoyed by horror/fantasy/dark comedy fanatics, a masterpiece for Lynch admirers who love analyzing his unique films or hated by those who ignore its majestic euphemisms because of its weirdness. One of the quiet influential pictures because of its mood, utilization of industrial sound and skillful direction. This may appear sluggish, incomprehensible and just plain trash (but in this critics opinion, Twin Peaks was totally too deranged/too many plot holes for this raters taste), it's a matter of reading the lines and seeing thru what is actually visible on screen. Henry Spencer (Jack Nance) discovers that his girlfriend Mary (Charlotte Stewart) has labored a creature. Spencer than dreams of a deformed Lady in the Radiator (Laurel Near) who sings and squis...
