Jacob's Ladder - American psychological horror film written and produced by Bruce Joel Rubin and directed by Adrian Lyne. Starring Tim Robbins, Elizabeth Peņa and Danny Aiello. It inspired several films including franchise 'Silent Hill' as well as a remake Jacob's Ladder is announced.
Jacob [Tim Robbins] plays a Vietnam veteran who suffers from hallucinative imagination - and nightmarish flashback of last time getting injured at the Vietnam-war battle. These ghastly images open up twisted-thread.
Film is nowhere near being called as 'horror' (not even psychological aspect of it qualify it to be referred as horror). Film's central theme is inspired from the real-incident of usage of hallucinative medicines in the Vietnam-war by the Pentagon (an allegation that was denied by Pentagon). Good acting, soothing music-score!
