Storyline

Essentially a prequel to David Lynch and Mark Frost's earlier TV series "Twin Peaks". The first half-hour or so concerns the investigation by FBI Agent Chet Desmond (Chris Isaak) and his partner Sam Stanley (Kiefer Sutherland) into the murder of night-shift waitress Teresa Banks in the small Washington state town of Deer Meadow. When Desmond finds a mysterious clue to the murder, he inexplicably disappears. The film then cuts to one year later in the nearby town of Twin Peaks and follows the events during the last week in the life of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) a troubled teenage girl with two boyfriends; the hot-tempered rebel Bobby Briggs (Dana Ashbrook) and quiet biker James Hurley (James Marshall), her drug addiction, and her relationship with her difficult (and possible schizophrenic) father Leland (Ray Wise), a story in which her violent murder was later to motivate much of the TV series. Contains a considerable amount of sex, drugs, violence, very loud music and inexplicable ... Written by Douglas Baptie

Trivia

Chris Isaak previously appeared in The Silence of the Lambs (1991), which also concerned an FBI investigation, although he only played a SWAT team member. Anthony Hopkins was cast as Hannibal Lecter because director Jonathan Demme wanted him to play the evil counterpart to his character in The Elephant Man (1980), directed by David Lynch. See more »

Alternate Versions

In Spain, there are two different dubbed versions: one of them, pretty rare and seen only on the TV channel Canal +, features almost all the same dubbed voices than the Spanish version of the series Twin Peaks , while the other, easier to find (but not much, being that in Spain the movie is hard to find any way), has no common dubbed voices with the series. None of these dubbed versions feature dubbing or subtitles for the Red Room and nightclub scenes. See more »

The most underrated movie of the 90's
1 March 1999 | by damnfineSee all my reviews

This was one of the most critically panned movies of the decade, but only because the world's film critics are too full of their own self-importance to bother watching a masterful TV series like Twin Peaks. All Twin Peaks fans know that this movie is monumental enough to transcend criticism, sure it makes no sense to those who have never seen the TV series, but those people have never lived anyway. Twin Peaks: FWWM, brings a genuine sense of tragic martyrdom to the death of Laura Palmer, as well as being one of the scariest, most surreal and atmospheric movies ever made. Never seen Twin Peaks? Watch the TV series on video first, and then see this incredible prequel.
