Fans will be looking to get their hands on the special edition boxset
It’s been 24 years since the first episode of Twin Peaks aired. At the time, fans of the show were gripped by the murder mystery surrounding Laura Palmer’s death. As years went on, the show garnered cult status for its strangely enthralling tone, pacing and reoccurring themes. Pie and coffee anyone?

David Lynch will release 90 minutes of unseen material from 'Twin Peaks'
Twin Peaks, created by Lynch and Mark Frost, was a surreal crime thriller set in a picturesque American town ripped apart by the murder of girl next door Laura Palmer, who was found dead, wrapped in plastic and left on a riverbank. It became an instant international hit, with a global marketing campaign asking the question on everybody's lips: "Who killed Laura Palmer?"
They've come back haunted: Nine Inch Nails mark their return with dark song and creepy David Lynch video, 'Came Back Haunted.'
Industrial rockers Nine Inch Nails have teamed up with prolific filmmaker David Lynch for their new music video for 'Came Back Haunted.' After going on hiatus in 2009, the band's return was announced by lead singer Trent Reznor in February 2013, along with a worldwide festival and arena tour.
Nine Inch Nails Mark Their Return With 'Came Back Haunted.'
In typical NIN fashion, the video is about as disturbing as it can be (see also: the universally banned Broken EP videos), showing shaky images of singer/guitarist/wizard of weird Trent Reznor spliced over an image of what looks like a flobberworm. Add in a red/white flashing screen, a particularly evil eye and strange gas mask-wearing spidergirl images, and you have a pretty good accompaniment for the dark subject matter of NIN's songs. "They put something inside of me/The smile is red and its eyes are black/I don't think I'll be coming back," sings Reznor atop trademark fuzzy guitars and synthesised 'oohs.' The song is catchy and the video is strangely hypnotising - a simple idea that gets under your skin, making you look around to see if anyone's lurking behind you.
The film-making giant has gotten so fed-up with the current state of Hollywood that he doesn't think he'll be back behind the camera for some time
Movie-making great David Lynch used to have audiences and critics squirming in their seats with anticipation whenever his next film was due to hit cinemas, however those days of awaiting the latest creation from one of Hollywood's most unique minds may have come and gone, as Lynch is supposedly so fed-up with the current, money-hungry state of filmmaking that he doesn't seen his return coming any time soon.
Lynch was speaking with UK newspaper The Independent recently when he discussed his dissatisfaction with the movie industry, a feeling that is so imbedded into him that it looks as though he may have already made his final picture. A man known for his darker, 'Lynchian' style when it comes to his films, Lynch reckons that there is no room for his kind of movies any more, and he has a good point too. Who would finance a strange indie film with a limited audieence and where would it play where it could make any money at all? To say the movie business just isn't what it used to be is something of an understatement.
"It's a very depressing picture. With alternative cinema – any sort of cinema that isn't mainstream – you're fresh out of luck in terms of getting theatre space and having people come to see it. Even if I had a big idea, the world is different now," Lynch told The Independent in his recent discussion. "Unfortunately, my ideas are not what you'd call commercial, and money really drives the boat these days. So I don't know what my future is. I don't have a clue what I'm going to be able to do in the world of cinema."

I'll admit now that I wore an "I killed Laura Palmer" t-shirt thoughout my freshman year of college. Am I embarrassed by that now? Yes, but not as much as you'd think. Twin Peaks was a bona-fide phenomenon, the most subversively popular thing of its day and still a brainy-slash-guilty pleasure with few equals.

The notorious David Lynch has always held a rather slippery grip on narrative construction and a rather absent grasp on convention. At last we left him, his surreal dreamscape was the city of L.A. and a pair of lesbian lovers who may or may not have broken up because of a brash film director, and that's just the peripheral story. Mulholland Drive was Lynch at his very best, using Los Angeles as a canvas to purge all his hallucinatory digressions and woozy dreams into a noir-tinged love story. Lynch now returns to L.A. once again for Inland Empire, a 180-minute, digitally-shot nightmare that culls together the absolute worst attributes of Lynch and his personal style.

Wild at Heart was puzzling, because it was screwed up and it was hard to figure out why. Time - and, 14 years later, the DVD release - helps to clear up that central enigma. Based very loosely on Barry Gifford's novel, this manic, Southern Gothic road movie now seems too deliberately weird. And in retrospect the cause seems to be that its creator, a strange man if the available evidence of his films is to be believed, and one who then was only recently revered as a certain type of genius, was trying so hard just to be himself.

Filled with non-sequitur imagery and symbolism, Fire ostensibly tells how Laura Palmer came to be wrapped in that sheet of plastic which so fatefully washed ashore in the first episode of the TV series. But Fire doesn't really tell any story at all. There are scenes of exposition, but these are sandwiched between the endless dream sequences, the lunatic characters (like the woman in red and the one-armed man) who appear and vanish just as suddenly, and bonus raunch added just for the purpose of titillating the audience.

But Lynch fans might find stuff to enjoy in Dune anyhow. After all, there's a floating bug monster that parlays with Jose Ferrer's space emperor in the early going, flanked by legions of somnambulant slaves in black raincoats that probably inspired the villains in Dark City. This is followed by Kenneth MacMillan's puss-faced Baron Harkonnen floating around on wires, plucking out the heart of an angel-faced boy-toy (who was planting Blue Velvet-style pastel flowers only moments earlier), and sharing some homo-erotic blubbering with his nephew Feyd (played by Sting, who can't act but lends the film his charismatic rock star presence). Even when the plot is difficult to follow -- some nonsense involving a trade war over different planets that all made sense in Frank Herbert's original novel -- there's enough giddy comic book theatrics to keep Dune interesting as it meanders along for nearly three hours.

The talent behind Eraserhead is that one truly surrealist presence in mainstream American film, David Lynch. Later Lynch would expose the subterranean evil of Capra-esque America in 1986's Blue Velvet, recast The Wizard of Oz among the riotously criminal milieu of 1990's Wild at Heart, and offer us a circuitous journey down Los Angeles's famed Mulholland Drive in 2001 (although you won't be there to admire the view). And critics and audiences will marvel at the perversity of it all.

Crumb was the creator of such works as the drawing "Keep on Truckin'," which became an icon adorning every truck mud flap in the 1960s, the cover art for Big Brother and the Holding Company's album "Cheap Thrills," and the character Fritz the Cat, which had the dubious distinction of starring in the first X-rated feature animated film.

We pass by an elderly fellow who fluidly waters his lawn. He suddenly clutches his neck in pain and falls to the ground. A dog, intrigued by the hose still erect in his hand, playfully jumps on him and drinks from the stream of water. A toddler, unaware of the emergency, strolls down the driveway. The camera then penetrates deep into the ground, where a swarm of hungry, vicious black bugs lurks beneath the idyllic surface of this picture-perfect neighborhood.
