A wild, kaleidoscopic romp through the rave culture of the 1990s.

Two friends find local success staging illegal warehouse parties. However, as their business expands, they are drawn deeper and deeper into the dark side of the game, right at the hedonistic peak of the international rave scene. With an outstanding script by Chris Coghill, excellent performances all round, and stylish, soulful direction by Karl Golden, this is a delirious, dangerous, and downright unforgettable trip.

    Not as good as Golden's previous movie, Pelican Blood, but good fun - http://flickfeast.co.uk/reviews/film-reviews/weekender-2011/
