Frightening & Intense Scenes (9)

  • Severe
  • While nothing is particularly inappropriate about "Eraserhead" it's a very bizarre and surreal experience.
  • There are one or two jumpscare-like scenes, where the camera cuts to strange imagery and loud music suddenly starts playing. Can be startling but the shock wears off quickly. There are also a few other scenes where the music suddenly gets very loud and it can be unnerving.
  • The movie has a pervasively dark and eerie atmosphere. Ambient sounds play through pretty much the whole movie that can be eerie at times.
  • Very similar to some of David Lynch's (this film's director) other films such as Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire minus all the sex, profanity and violence.
  • There are many surreal and strange scenes and visuals, that can sometimes be very intense. The climax of the film is especially intense.
  • Some characters behave strangely and can be uncomfortable to watch.
  • The whole movie is basically intended to be one long nightmare based off of a man's fears. The movie is very distressing.
  • Overall, the movie isn't as inappropriate as it may sound. The movie is distressing, but it's more likely to cause some to become weirded out than mentally scarred.
  • A man MIGHT have killed his child. This is mostly implied and it may have just been a delusion of the character. He also may have committed suicide.
