 A classic

Not many films have ever challenged and then succeeded so well to put the notion of hell onto the big screen. Jacob's ladder does it and does it superbly.

Robbins is perfect as the loveable man just trying to forget the past and get on with life in such a dire situation.

Not only a moving film but a genuine chilling one too as the back story reveals the horrors of war and the ultimate cost of what a nation will do to win.

One of the best films of the 90's

 Ahead of its time

One of the very best psychological horror movies ever done. Masterful combination of a harsh realities, suspense, hallucinations, loneliness, horror and abandonment. Very underrated film, that has inspired dozens of films in the 90s and 2000s (check by yourself). Great and sincere acting by Tim Robbins.

I saw this film at the cinema, it is boring garbage, the only reason I watched until the end was because I had paid to see it!! AVOID!!!

 Classic.... One of the Best Psychological Horrors Ever!

Jacob's Ladder is one of the most underestimated films. Dismissed by some because they didn't like the ending. Personally i thought it was one of the best twist ever! The film follows Jacob, a former soldier struggling to deal with life after Nam. Jacob begins to see Demons and convinced something happened to him during the war sets out to find an explanation. The film is confusing at times but with a little patience you will be rewarded. Aided with a cool soundtrack and effects its one of the bravest psychological Horrors ever.

 Outstanding psychological horror film.

I first saw this picture on tv. It has an excellent plot and is well crafted. Tim Robbins is at his best and has a very good supporting cast. I am not a great fan of horror films but watched it because it had Tim Robbins in it and I'm glad that I did. It is a chilling roller-coaster and had me on the edge of my seat. I cannot recommend it too highly. You will not be disappointed.
