Twin Peaks Box Set
To any die-hard David Lynch fan, the Twin Peaks box set is solid gold. Until a few years ago, fans of the iconic TV show had to scrounge around in bargain bins for old VHS tapes of the first 2 seasons of the show, the 3rd season was not even released until the box set came out. The fantastically twisted world of Twin Peaks, a small logging town torn apart by a beautiful young girl's murder, is at once entrancing and disturbing. Leland Palmer makes one of the best villains I've ever seen, his madness is so consuming and unbridled! Kyle McLaughlin's Special Agent Dale Cooper remains one of my favorite characters of all time, and a lolita-esque Sherilyn Fenn hints at a riveting darkness behind her movie-star good looks. Check out the box set, and prepare to be drawn into a world of backwards-talking midgets, glorious 90's experimental music, and enough murder to satisfy any horror fan! (also look out for Heather Graham, in one of her first roles, Piper Laurie and Laura Flynn Boyle before she got all that plastic surgery)
Check out this clip of the opening titles of Twin Peaks :)
