Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Essentially a prequel to David Lynch and Mark Frost's earlier TV series "Twin Peaks". The first half-hour or so concerns the investigation by FBI Agent Chet Desmond (Chris Isaak) and his partner Sam Stanley (Kiefer Sutherland) into the murder of night-shift waitress Teresa Banks in the small Washington state town of Deer Meadow. When Desmond finds a mysterious clue to the murder, he inexplicably disappears. The film then cuts to one year later in the nearby town of Twin Peaks and follows the events during the last week in the life of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) a troubled teenage girl with two boyfriends; the hot-tempered rebel Bobby Briggs (Dana Ashbrook) and quiet biker James Hurley (James Marshall), her drug addiction, and her relationship with her difficult (and possible schizophrenic) father Leland (Ray Wise), a story in which her violent murder was later to motivate much of the TV series. Contains a considerable amount of sex, drugs, violence, very loud music and inexplicable imagery.
Meet Laura Palmer... In a town where nothing is as it seems... And everyone has something to hide.

- Contrary to rumors that she refused the chance to reprise her television role because of the film's nude scenes, Lara Flynn Boyle's absence from Fire Walk With Me was actually due to scheduling conflicts, as she had prior obligations to four other films.
In most versions of the film certain sequences are sub-titled - at the nightclub where the music drowns out the dialogue and when characters speak backwards - but not in the British version. Apparently, director David Lynchchanged his mind so often as to whether they should be included or not, by the time he came to a final decision, the British distributors had already made all their prints (without subtitles) and couldn't afford to make any more.
Robert Engels claims the script that he and Lynch wrote is much longer than the version that Lynch actually filmed. He claims there is enough story for a sequel. Indeed, as with many other Lynch films, about five hours of footage was shot. Many of the scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor involved characters who appeared in the television series but not in the movie. These scenes include - Sheriff Harry Truman singing to girlfriend Josie Packard - Johnny Horne's birthday party - Bobby Briggs' parents reading from the Bible - Doc Hayward performing magic tricks - a fight scene between FBI Agent Chester Desmond and Sheriff Cable.
The zigzag pattern on the floor of the Black Lodge is similar to the pattern on the floor of the lobby of Henry's house in Eraserhead (1977), also directed by David Lynch. The Black Lodge version of the pattern is much larger.
Director Trademark: [David Lynch] [singer] Julee Cruise, Chris Isaak, David Bowie.
