Jacob's Ladder Re-Imagined for 2019

Vertical's Jacob's Ladder
I've seen loads of horror movies, and this being fairly common knowledge, I'm often asked what horror movies actually stick with me after the lights come up. Jacob's Ladder was one of those films. As I exited the theater, a mournful wind blew debris down the city street, upending cans that clanked against concrete. The darkness was just a bit darker, and I could tell I'd be mulling over this film's content for years to come. If those shuddering faces didn't get under your skin, I'm not sure anything will bother you! Now we flash forward to 2019 and Vertical Entertainment's Jacob's Ladder is nearing its August 23rd release date...and honestly...I have NO idea what to expect...

After the death of his brother in Afghanistan, Jacob Singer is finally getting his life back together. He has a beautiful wife, a new born child and a successful career as surgeon in a VA hospital. When a stranger approaches him and tells him that his brother is actually alive and living in an underground shelter with other homeless vets, Jacob’s life starts to unravel. He begins hallucinating, believes he is being followed by violent attackers and becomes paranoid about the truth of what really happened to his brother. When he discovers that his brother is alive and addicted to an experimental drug, he uncovers a secret he never could have been prepared for.

IN THEATERS AND ON DEMAND AUGUST 23, 2019. This film is not yet rated.
