Available beginning February 4, 2019, the cult classic Jacob’s Ladder. Starring Academy Award winner Tim Robbins (“Mystic River,” “The Player”) and Elizabeth Peña (“Rush Hour,” “The Incredibles”), Jacob’s Ladder follows Jacob, a haunted Vietnam War veteran who is mourning the death of his child and attempting to uncover his past while suffering from a severe case of dissociation. With strange, fragmentary visions and bizarre hallucinations that continue to haunt him, Jacob desperately attempts to figure out the truth. Garnering a cult following from horror fans and industry tastemakers following its release, the film’s plot and special effects have been a source of influence for various works, including the horror video game franchise “Silent Hill.”
