Six go mad in the country.
Bad idea 1: Travel all the way to an unfamiliar country with the sole intention of ingesting hallucinogens. Bad idea 2: Take along a gang of people you don't like or trust very much. Bad idea 3: Locate this experiment in a dank, dense woodland which also houses a gloomy abandoned church orphanage where horrible things have been done to a great many children over the years... You could try to take this delirious Irish horror seriously, by reading in a subtext about the mistreatment of vulnerable children within the ranks of the Catholic church. Or you could just enjoy the off-colour humour, the wildly creepy atmosphere and the the out-there violence. Think The Blair Witch Project with added psychedelics.
