Not Rated | | Horror
Henry Spencer tries to survive his industrial environment, his angry girlfriend, and the unbearable screams of his newly born mutant child.
The desolate, muddy and potholed urban landscape that Henry walks through at the beginning of the film is now the site of the Beverly Center Mall.
Beautiful Girl Across the Hall:
Are you Henry?
Henry Spencer: Yes?
Beautiful Girl Across the Hall: A girl named "Mary" called on the payphone in the hallway about an hour ago. She said that she's at her parents and that you're invited to dinner.
Henry Spencer: Oh, yeah?
Henry Spencer: Well... thank you very much.
Henry takes off the wrong shoe/sock to dry off.
There are no opening credits, just a long, tilted close-up of the face of Jack Nance.
The longer original version was screened in public only once before being changed by David Lynch to its present format.
