Corman drops a psychedelic bomb and everyone gets high.

 Please note this film contains strobing light effects.

A television director (Peter Fonda) takes LSD (scored from Dennis Hopper) for the first time, with his friend (Bruce Dern) as chaperone. With a man’s mind literally turning inside out on screen, Corman’s kaleidoscopic acid trip (from a detailed script by Jack Nicholson) is an essential flashback to swinging 60s counter-culture on celluloid, which saw several of The Trip’s key players reunite two years later for the mighty Easy Rider.
