Just got done watching this movie. The first 45 minutes were impressive, but then it took a sharp turn down the road of suckage.

Thats what I thought too. Definatly a no-pay-movie.

Sorry cause it's a pretty old post but I just saw it and it sucked big time. The beginning of the movie has NOTHING to do with the second half. It was awesome on the beginning and then..... nothing but bullshit.

i dont agree.

It is very 80's and kind of turns into a dramatic thriller when he turns into the wolf man - but thats all in homage to the notion of "returning to the primitive instinct" of psychedelics...

The movie is based losely around john C lilly, maria sabina, and terrence mckenna blended into one (im probably remembering the-who wrong.).. Whoever made it had some knowledge towards the early psychedelic culture and the psychedelic experience itself.

Laughable 80's props... but i think its alright.

Yeah dude but Maria Sabina and Terrence Mckenna were talking about another type of "returning to the roots". And wtf, the end is trying to get to idea that love can save you from a bad trip which is also a good one? It makes no sense and the movie is somewhat immature.
While Terrence Mckenna and Maria Sabina's thoughts on psychedelics was a state of Nirvana, this movie is implying that psychedelics actually makes us go back to the scale of evoluton.

i dont think it does imply that.

I think it threw in action to gain an audience. Its like dismissing the philosophy of the matrix behind the action.

I borrowed it from a friend one night and turned it off about 30-45 minutes into it.  Imagine my suprise the next day when my friend asked what I thought about the guy turning into an animal :ooo: :lol: :lol:

I think pretty much the the same as mine, only I did saw it until the end and I couldn't believe what I saw. :foreheadslap:

It has some pretty cool scenes but it also seems to make tripping look bad. Everything seemed kind of satanic or something I don't remember anything like a good trip in the movie, the natives are putting his blood into their mushroom tea and he's seeing goats with all these eyes and stuff. It seemed like it was going to be a decent watch, had a nice setup, he was going to go out into the desert and the movie was going to take it from there and be cool...

If only the moral of the story wasn't mushrooms will turn you into a monkey and the only cure is love!

Him turning into an ape is has huge meaning. Through the use of the chamber and the ayuahsca/peyote(?), he was able to connect with cosmic consciousness and "experience the a regressive process" of the evolution on this planet from nothingness, to single celled organism, to ape, to man.

Robert Anton Wilson details this theory using Timothy Leary work on the 8 neurological circuit model.

I give the movie a 9 out of 10.

I think it was A. Muscaria that they were using. This whole huge meaning really seemed to be missed by most people even though the basic concept is pretty simple. Maybe the people who made this movie had a good idea but it really wasn't made very well IMO...

It sounds pretty good, I bought it at wally world one day for like 15 bucks, but my cousin came over and accidentally grabbed it instead of his own dvd, ah well. I hope to watch it one day :sun:
