Makes "Skidoo" look like "Easy Rider"
6 April 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

If only all nudie films where this out there! "The Acid Eaters" isn't great cinema by any means, but its one of the most fascinatingly surreal cash-ins on the peace and love generation made by people with obviously zero connections to the scene. It makes "Skidoo" look like "Easy Rider". That being said, its entirely watchable just because of how bizarre it is. I'm not sure what rating I should give to this film. Its absolutely moronic and lacks any characterization or plot whatsoever. As eroticism, it fails also because the ladies are quite comely (with the notable exception of Pat Barrington) and the guys are completely unappealing (in particular the shower sequence with Buck Kartalian is quite awkward).

However, those looking for psychotronic gold, look no further! Despite how dumb it is, I've never seen anything quite like "The Acid Eaters". Its an impossibly surreal film that follows no normal laws of narrative cinema. The trips to hell are unforgettable as is the final orgy freak-out. This film screams for a wider cult reputation that it has received. The direction by Byron Mabe is adequate, considering the material he was saddled with, and manages to keep everything at a quick pace. Thanks to Something Weird for releasing this to DVD, as "The Acid Eaters" is another film I've been hearing about for years. (6/10)
