In Heaven, everything is fine.
In Heaven, everything is fine.
You've got your good things. And I've got mine.

A 1977 surrealist horror film by David Lynch.

Henry Spencer was on vacation. Mary X, his old girlfriend, had a deformed baby. "They're still not sure if it is a baby." She gave it to him and left. He had difficulty raising it.

There was a lady speaking from his radiator. There was a Beautiful Girl Across The Hall. There was a man in a pencil factory. There was a planet.

Henry's baby got sick. He tried to help it.

The film is slow paced, almost completely void of dialogue, and can safely be called the most popular student art film ever made. It is beautiful, terrifying, and uses hauntingly realistic effects.


Tropes used in Eraserhead include:

"The doctors aren't sure it even IS a baby!"
