I honestly don't understand why this is considered a cult classic. This was by far the most disturbing thing I have ever seen.

I think you answered your own question JAB88, in terms of a Midnight horror movie, it is a very disturbing experience, which is what horror fans are looking for. Throw in David Lynch and his career to follow, and the fact that he spent five years trying to get it made and that is the perfect combination of a "cult classic".

All style, no substance. Really just a poor excuse for a movie. I love movies more than anyone I know, and I could hardly wait for this to get over.

Holy fucking shit, this "movie" is terrible. I would even go as far as to say that this ugly big big big pretentious pile of garbage is the worst movie i've seen so far. A truly shit movie with no mening or anything remotely good to It.
