Screener Squad: Jacob’s Ladder (2019)

Jacob's Ladder Movie Review


Sorry for the delay with this review, but Bradly and Frank had to take some time wrapping their brains around why anyone would want to remake a classic like Jacob’s Ladder. Based on the mind-bending 1990 cult classic, the story follows newlywed Jacob (Michael Ealy) as he struggles to get over the traumas of his past. When his estranged brother Isaac (Jesse Williams) comes back into his life, it forces Jacob to confront some dark secrets he had been purposefully trying to avoid. Is this ladder worth taking another climb? You’re about to find out.


DIRECTED BY: David M. Rosenthal

STARRING: Michael Ealy, Jesse Williams, Joseph Sikora, Nicole Beharie, Karla Souza
