(p.7) Introduction
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Lindsay Hallam

Liverpool University Press

This chapter focuses on David Lynch's film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me from 1992, which is a strange prequel film to a massively popular television show that became a commercial flop. It explains Fire Walk With Me as a film that is part of a larger universe that also encompasses a recent television revival in 2017, novels, deleted scenes, DVD extras, and a huge swathe of fan-generated content apart from the original series that was aired from 1990 to 1991. It also explains Fire Walk With Me as a stand-alone film about an abused young woman and the trauma she endures. The chapter mentions how Fire Walk With Me was labelled as one of the worst films ever made in 1992 but was also proclaimed a masterpiece in 2013. It explores the Fire Walk With Me's many facets and the myriad ways that it can be felt and received.
