Jacob's Ladder (1990) is a psychological horror film that is moody, strange, and trippy. Filled with hallucination and dream sequences, the film puts to question reality versus imagination. The film is highly regarded in the film community and by a cult following as well.
It's partly a Vietnam movie and a sort of post-traumatic stress film. The war action occurs in flashbacks while most of the story takes place a few years later in New York City.
