Psychedelic visual effects in movies?
    #3822547 - 02/23/05 03:51 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Sometimes I want to explain to someone who hasn't tried psychedelics what sort of visual effects he'd get with mushrooms. Do you think any movie depicts hallucinations accurately? Of course the most important effects are not visual, and perhaps the visual effects couldn't be properly appreciated unless you're in a psychedelic state, but I believe my question still makes sense... sort of :smile: In any case, I'll appreciate your opinion.

For example, in Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, the scene where they are trying to check in and Hunter is on acid... I think the carpet patterns flowing like liquid is quite accurate (while people turning into reptiles is not).

i would have to say the two movies that depict visuals pretty accurately are "the thief and the cobbler" by disney and "yellow submarine" none actually try to show psychedelic effects, inferred or otherwise, but the various animation styles capture the essense of hallucinations quite beautifully, i think.

Altered States.
The Holy Mountain.
The Grateful Dead Movie.
Alice in Wonderland.
Naked Lunch.
There are so many. Get some David Lynch if you want to "feel" like a psychedelic experience.

I agree, animation was born from hallucinations. Although that might not be true, just look at the way cartoon characters move. Everything is an exaggeration, if they were not tripping when they came up with early cartoons, they definitely had before.

Apocalypse Now-

the scenes where there are red and green lights slowing revelaing more and more of a scene then fading to black reminds me (due to its accuracy) of more than one acid trip I have had with the lighting and colors changing and what not.

I was going to say the carpet scene in F&LiLV, but you already know about that. Waking Life has some parts that are very similar to tripping visuals (there's this one part I'm thinking of where these 2 guys are talking about a holy moment, look at the one guy's hair). The movie was filmed, then animated over.

Anybody ever seen the movie The Holy Mountain?

It is without a doubt the most trippy movie I have ever seen before. Jesus is a main character and the trip scenes are outta this world. The whole movie is like one big trip, no movie has ever done a better job in portraying what it is like to trip, IMHO. The director even went a week without sleep prior to filming the movie in Mexico.

Oh, I started downloading that movie last night!

I saw other movies by the same director (Alejandro Jodorowsky): El Topo and Santa Sangre. Jodorowsky's work is absolutely amazing, trully from the Other Side.

Last week I saw a session of psicomagia (some sort of healing ritual he performs), downloaded from eMule (search for "Jodorowsky"). He recommended one of the persons in the audience to eat magic mushrooms mixed with honey. :mushroom2:

You can also show him the videoclip of the song Black Hole Sun by the band Soundgarden. It is EXACTLY how things looked during my first Shroom trip.

I was gonna say the carpet in FnL, that was pretty good.  Also, good point about David Lynch films, they do make you feel like your tripping.  Their just too damn weird.  There was an episode of Kath n Kim (the American version) where they accidentally drink some hallucinogen in a limo and everyone's faces start morphing ala Black Hole Sun.  Think you can watch it on NBC.com.  Also. there's a trip scene in SLC Punk that kind of demonstrates how the mind acts, if not visually.

In Waking Life, the way everything floats and move slightly and seems to have it's own gravity-independent existence reminds me a lot of shrooms, obviously there are a lot of differences though.

The only "psychedelic" movies I've seen are Fear and Loathing and Yellow Submarine, but all the TV shows that I've seen where people are on acid do a terrible job of portraying how people act, let alone what they perceive. Fear and Loathing was easy to identify with and Yellow Submarine was a very out-there experience while not explicitly related to tripping. The scene in Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny where Jack Black eats some random mushrooms was pretty much nothing like a shroom trip, although it was funny.

i don't really like the song but there are some parts that do a pretty good job of showing psychedelic hallucinations in the video for Meds by placebo

I'm oftentimes accepting of poor visual effects representing psychedelics in movies.  It's impossible to recreate the experience anyway...why worry about such minute differences, relatively.

A Scanner Darkly is pretty weird looking

I really love the matrix when tripping, that movie is all about tripping balls if you ask me. The special effects are still great even though they have been copied by other movies so many times.

Check out Mark 13/Hardware

its about a killer robot who makes people trip before he kills them
