The Hooked Generation / The Psychedelic Priest 2002 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
The whole world’s a freakout on one outrageous trip in this Psychoactive Time Capsule of homicide, hypodermics, and hippies-gone-bad! Three scary specimens of “The Hooked Generation” (1968, 94 min.)—Daisy, Acid, and Dum Dum—want to be big-time drug dealers, but have the collective IQ of a pack of rolling papers. Still, they decide to score a boatload of narcotics by killing Cuban smugglers, massacring members of the Coast Guard, and making hostages of two do-gooders who stumble on the scene. But when the gang learns that the drugs are too hot to unload, they scurry to the Everglades as the FBI closes in! Sick fun proving once and for all that swamps and syringes just don’t mix. “The Psychedelic Priest” (1971, 80 min.) - Father John accidentally drinks a soda spiked with LSD and trips his brains out to become the Psychedelic Priest. Setting off across America on a journey of self-discovery, he falls in love amidst hippies and heroin until hitting rock bottom on skid row. Originally titled “Electric Shades of Grey,” this unique dose of acid-fueled nostalgia is almost worth missing Sunday chuch for. Say amen, somebody!
