Film synopsis

Five years in the making, ERASERHEAD is David Lynch’s bizarre and groundbreaking film debut.

Shot in black and white, the film unfolds in a lifeless, industrial wasteland where the protagonist, Henry Spencer, tramps the grey, empty streets in a confused dream. An aloof young man who works as a printer, Henry finally faces up to his winsome, hysterical girlfriend and her freakshow family before finding he’s the father of a mutant alien child.

Lynch called ERASERHEAD “a dream of dark and troubling things” and Henry inevitably falls deeper into an unconscious nightmare populated with the demented, deformed and depraved until a beautiful vixen offers him some hope of escape.
