Rating of
3/4 

Mixes elements of sic-fi, horror, and the unexplainable, to create an unforgettable film. A scientist pushes the limits of human mental state using hallucinatory methods. The story is a familiar journey of the scientist getting so involved with his work that he ignores the dangers of it and his family, but ultimately comes back to them. The main focus here is of his experiences 'under-the-influence', so to speak. The visuals are unfathomable in the best way. It's complete sensory overload that I found entrancing. I was transported somewhere beyond, yet felt a new understanding of reality. It's best to go into this film without any knowledge of it. A truly unique visual experience.

1.5/4 

A cool premise -- unleashing the potential, and the horrors, of the human mind through prolonged sensory depravation -- gets a bit hooky toward the end. Bizarre late 70's drug special effects can also make it difficult to watch. But an interesting look into post-hippy culture.
