Genuinely my favourite film.

Not quite as I would like, but it mimics the movie poster, echoes the blurry headed demons and has a ladder thrown in for good measure (given the challenge asks you to relate to the title (rather than depict the movie?))

Only just come across this Paul. One of my favourite films as well and a very apt image. Great stuff.

Exquisite interpretation. Evocative, even if one does not know the movie.

One of my favorite movies of all time. Creepy subway scene, and the doctors at the "hospital" - he died right on the table in Vietnam though, didn't he?

Yep ! works well for me.

Brilliant depiction - climbing to highest hopes or freeing from Earth, either way this works for me.

Never seen this movie, but from all I've read, this seems to be the embodiment of it

One of my favorite movies. Easily one of the best horror movies ever made. Excellent image that completely fits the mood of the movie.
