Back When the World was One Big Freakout!
The whole planet seems to be on one outrageous trip in this Psychoactive Time Capsule of homicide, hypodermics and hippies-gone-bad from drive-in director William Grefe.
Three scary specimens of THE HOOKED GENERATION ó Daisey, Acid and Dum Dum ó want to be big-time drug dealers but have the collective I.Q. of a pack of rolling papers. That doesnít stop them, however, from scoring a boatload of narcotics by killing Cuban smugglers, massacring members of the Coast Guard, and making hostages out of two do-gooders who stumble onto the scene. But when the gang learns that the drugs are too hot to unload, they go scurrying into the Everglades as the FBI closes in.... Sick fun from the man who made Sting of Death, which proves once and for all that swamps and syringes just donít mix.
When Father John accidentally drinks a soft drink spiked with LSD and quickly trips his brains out, he becomes THE PSYCHEDELIC PRIEST
. Setting off across America on a journey of self-discovery, he falls in love amidst the world of hippies and heroin until finally hitting rock bottom on skid row... Originally titled Electric Shades of Grey
, THE PSYCHEDELIC PRIEST
is a unique acid-fueled nostalgia thatís almost worth missing Sunday church for. Say amen, somebody!
