Jacob's Ladder (1990)
The Wolfman Cometh

It's possible you've never seen "Jacob's Ladder" (1990), so I'm not about to spoil it for you. Suffice to say that Vietnam veteran Jacob Singer (Tim Robbins) suffers a series of demonic hallucinations (or are they?) stemming from post traumatic stress or possibly a secret Army drug program. Whatever the reason, reality keeps breaking down for both Jacob and the viewer, as night clubs and hospitals bleed into Hellish vistas of pain and suffering.
