Mind melting? Skin crawling? Wallpaper/Carpet breathing? Can't tell if its sweat or pee? Then you need a movie. Here is my "Top 5 Trippiest Movies!". So here we go my little fry-bags:
THE GROOVE TUBE 1974
Chevy Chase's first movie role, this bizarre movie, is a compilation of skits. Not only will you laugh, but you will scratch your head and say WTF was that?? This movie left my mind bent. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071583/
NAKED LUNCH 1991
Originally a novel by William S Burroughs, then turned into a roller coaster mind f@#$ movie. Its very difficult to explain the plot, but it goes like this: An exterminator discovers his wife is stealing his bug powder and using it as a drug. It slowly descends into an insane tale of conspiracy, paranoia, and murder. This one will hurt a bit..and leave you stained...
GWAR: SKULHEDFACE*It was difficult to try and track down a trailer, so a sample will have to do
Well I should start by saying, if you are weak of heart, easily offended, weak stomached, or general take yourself and life too seriously, this movie is FOR YOU...If you know Gwar then know I will feed you to the "World Maggot". This movie is meant to offend and entertain, but also subsequently plays with your brain. I'd recommend this one to anyone else with a dark twisted sense of humour. Here is a WIKIPEDIA plot summary that uses "meanwhile" too much...
" Skulhedface being the movie coinciding with This Toilet Earth, the story of both album and movie are nearly identical (though the album diverges from that story frequently). Skulhedface, formerly a beautiful queen of a peaceful, vegetarian planet, was transformed into a foul creature during a raid on her planet by Cardinal Syn, Gwar's eternal foe. She travels to Earth, where she is instructed to acquire sufficient amounts of Jizmoglobin, a blue bodily fluid that is responsible for the creativity, rebellion and decadence of all creatures.
Gwar, meanwhile, is hosting a telethon on their pirate television network, Slave Pit TV. The goal of the telethon: offer enough human sacrifices to unite tom with the World Maggot, which lies dormant in the Earth's core, and ride it off the planet. They are having an increasing amount of success, which draws the attention of GlomCo, an archetypical evil media conglomerate.
Boss Glom, the CEO, summons Gwar's manager, Sleazy P. Martini, in the hopes that he will sell Gwar out, reduce them to commodities, and ultimately kill the band to prevent any interference. Martini repeatedly refuses, until he is offered more money than he has ever seen in his life. At this point, Gwar breaks through the ceiling, and Boss Glom summons his armed guards. Gwar makes short work of the guards and the other board members, but Glom escapes to his private elevator. After that, Slave Pit TV is then broadcast to the public, having taken over the equipment as well as the corporation.
On the way down to a secret laboratory, Boss Glom is revealed to be Skulhedface, and in her laboratory, her assistant, Flopsy, assists her to a large Jizmoglobin extraction device. Rocker Sebastian Bach is placed in the device, his Jizmoglobin removed, and emerges a business type with absolutely no personality. Skulhedface starts to drink the Jizmoglobin, when a transmission from Cardinal Syn comes in - he will "be arriving in the next movie" (which he does) to collect Jizmoglobin and subjugate the planet (which he attempts to do, but fails).
Meanwhile, the telethon is still going well, and Gwar feasts their imminent departure from the planet. Beefcake the Mighty, however, spots Flopsy, who has come to lure him into a trap. Flopsy removes his face, dons it himself, and tells Gwar of midgets in the basement (with which they could sate their sexual appetite one last time before leaving).
When they get to the basement, they find Beefcake, tied up and without a face. During a conversation with Skulhedface, Flopsy returns Beefcake's face, and in return, decides to stick his fist in Flopsy's mouth (which is vaginal in shape). Unfortunately, he is too rough, and Flopsy dies.
Skulhedface reveals her greatest weapon - the Flesh Column, composed of the foulest of human pieces. The combined efforts of Gwar are insufficient, and they are subjected to the device, which is overloaded with their combined Jizmoglobin. Skulhedface is reverted to her old self, and Gwar into infants. Now benevolent, she returns their Jizmoglobin, and things return to as they were. The entire band (minus Slymenstra Hymen) rapes her to death, and they promptly return to the World Maggot. As they reach the surface, they see the World Maggot flying away, while Sleazy P. Martini "consoles" them and concludes the broadcast day."
If you can read that in its entirety...you need more.....
Altered States 1980
A scientist's obsession with hallucinogenic drugs pushes him to insanity or genetic devolution. This movie can be a mind bender.
Arguably any Wes Anderson film
The Royal Tenenbaums
Wes Anderson has strange characters, situations, camera shots, music, hell movies in general...if you was want a safe trip movie, any of his films will do.
