Adrian Lyne looked at the photograph. He focused on the ladder reaching the sky and the giant wheel on the roof top. Suddenly, he smiled. The assistant who had brought him the picture relaxed.

D: The set needs a reptilian look.

A:  Yes sir!

D: The rims of the wheel and the ladder will have to be covered with snakes. I shall produce Jacob’s Ladder –II.  It will be fusion of the biblical tale and the game of snake and ladders.  Tell Rubin to come sharp at 8.30 tomorrow morning. Besides devils and fire, hell has snakes too.

“Jacob’s Ladder” is coming back from the dead. A remake of the 1990 movie is being developed, although not much is known about the project.



Thanks & Shalom, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

  1. I saw that movie when it first came out, and it confused the hell out of me (of course, I was only 15 or so at the time) and then later, watched it, and was horribly disappointed by the ending. If they re-make it, will they have it be Gulf War vets, do you suppose?
    Your story is an amusing take on the prompt.

    • Thank you H.

      The story itself is multi-layered fable. It has many meanings. The original too was confusing.

      The remake is being done by another team. This, however, is just spoof. So I do not really know.


    • Just imagine all the ascending and descending angels being bitten by snakes and falling to the ground …… don’t really know how the idea cropped up …..

      Thanks 🙂

I love arguments
