The Trippiest Movies Ever Made

Trippy sheeitI’m a sucker for movie scenes that are uncomfortably trippy. The kind where you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that whoever wrote them was either very, very high on drugs or batshit crazy.

I like them because there is so much safe material out there that I start craving something, anything, that pushes the boundaries.

What you’re about to see is three and a half minutes of exactly that. Scenes that could be straight out of a dream / nightmare / drug induced hallucination of brain-melting proportions. So fire up the bong and let’s get to it shall we?
