Description by OLDIES.com:

This 1977 cult classic from filmmaker David Lynch has been interpreted by some as his off-the-wall take on life in the big city and the anxieties associated with becoming a father for the first time.

Product Description:

Director David Lynch's feature-film debut is a masterpiece of the macabre and grotesque. Reportedly a reaction to the news that he was about to become a father, Lynch's ERASERHEAD follows a sensitive young man as he struggles to cope with impending parenthood. Henry Spencer (Jack Nance) lives in a hopeless industrial landscape, lusting after the beautiful woman who lives in the apartment across the hall. After his girlfriend, Mary (Charlotte Stewart), informs him of her pregnancy, he is forced to eat dinner with her extremely odd family. The baby is eventually born, only it isn't a human baby at all; it's a deformed creature that resembles a lizard. The baby won't stop crying, a horrifyingly piercing wail that drives Mary insane. Left alone with the baby, Henry is serenaded by a woman who lives inside his radiator, and soon he decides to murder his baby in order to stop the nightmare once and for all. Five years in the making, ERASERHEAD contains all of the trademark attributes of a Lynch film--haunting visuals, an ethereal score, unsettling sound design, and, most notably, a black sense of humor--creating a world onscreen that is exhilarating, terrifying, and unique.

Plot Synopsis:

David Lynch's surreal, existentialist nightmare has become a bona fide cult classic. In a nameless, menacing industrial city, a shy man learns that he is about to become a father. When the baby is born, he is shocked to discover that it is a ghastly mutant. The baby's endless crying torments the parents night and day, putting a strain on their relationship, which is nearing an end. Eventually the man sees his only chance of escape in murdering the child. Lynch's ERASERHEAD has rightly earned its place in cinema history, with its terrifying mood and stunning visuals.
