From age 16 and up Fear
David Lynch, 1977 89 minutes Jack Nance, Charlotte Stewart, Allen Joseph, Jeanne Bates USA English 24 November 2017 Dutch

David Lynch’s feature film debut was greeted with massive acclaim on the midnight movie circuit and stands as one of the most haunting and renowned cult classics of American cinema, introducing audiences to the director's unique, unsettling aesthetic.

Set in an eerily dark, fetid industrial landscape, the film follows a young couple as they struggle with married life and the arrival of an unexpected and hideously deformed child. Nightmarish hallucinations, adultery, and violence follow as the family dissolves in their squalid existence. Meticulously constructed sound design and visceral black-and-white cinematography create a grotesque and surreal cinematic experience, foreshadowing Lynch's later mainstream successes which plumb the vile and insidious depths of the American family.
