Not so long ago, David Lynch told the Guardian that if someone wanted to create a remake of Eraserhead, he would shoot them if. As far as I know, the creative folks that made the following Eraserhead homages didn’t go missing, but they better watch out because maybe that gun in his drawer on Louie wasn’t just a prop.
“If they were near me I might shoot them. If I had a gun.”
Make sure you check out Criterion‘s release of Eraserhead on Blu-ray and DVD for the real deal.
