HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT: Eraserhead
Hit me with your best shot is back again with David Lynch's cult horror film - "Eraserhead". This film definitely creeped me out, but I'm not sure I really understand it. It really did play like a horrible nightmare. I've seen "Mulholland Drive" and now this and I'm still not a David Lynch fan (cue boos). Misgivings aside, there were definitely a lot of striking images to choose from.

This image comes from one of the most grotesque scenes in the film. The main character has just brutally killed his mutant baby and it begins to ooze and squirt all sorts of body fluids. Yuck! This scene gave me immense satisfaction, as throughout the entire film I kept wondering why they didn't get rid of it. However, days after viewing the film, I keep wondering why I had such a negative attitude towards this innocent creature. Maybe I'm just a horrible human being?
