Psychedelic, psychotronic media barrage at its finest
10 April 2004 | by (Boulder, CO) – See all my reviews

A fast paced montage of video clips taken from conspiracy media reveal the true nature of reality, allowing you to escape into the safety of your own delusions by pulling the wool over your own eyes. Revival footage of Subgenius ministers is intercut, helping to guide you along the path of true Slack. Hilarious, brilliant, and scary in its uncovering of the true Conspiracy that threatens all life on this planet. A must see, but those with heart conditions should have a licensed Doktor standing by, just in case.
