Storyline

Have you ever had a bad trip? In this stark black comedic tale, three adolescent boys and one sinfully attractive cheerleader will embark on a hallucinogenic journey that will lead them nowhere beneficial. Tommy, an unusually extroverted, exaggerated loner is pitted against his ridiculously popular older brother, Richard, while Richard's friend Colby buzzes around them both. Spicing things up at a rapid rate, Sasha, head cheerleader and domineering goddess, plans a party with the most sexual of intentions, unintentionally causing an insanely outlandish chain reaction in the process. From vindictive drug dealers and dreamlike scenarios, to the possibility of murder, anything is feasible. Functioning like a fever dream, with exaggerated archetypes, Trip Out shatters the mold of traditional high school films and reshapes it into something not easily forgotten. Written by James M. Hausler

Probably the worst movie I've ever seen
30 November 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Really, after 10 minutes watching this movie, I couldn't believe how could someone actually create such an awful film (if this can be called a film). Starting with the acting, a bunch of "hey-guys-you-wanna-be-in-my-movie" sort of people who have no idea how to act insult each other during the whole freakin time in the fakest way possible (that line "Is that blood on the trophy?" couldn't be worst). To have an idea, the guy who is supposed to be the most popular guy in school is a stupid nerd, and it wasn't meant to be a joke. They actually thought that because a guy was smart and everything, the president of school, all the girls would want to have sex with that ugly kid (the actor looks like 30, but he must be supposed to be 18). The script is as bad as possible, as I said, only people insulting each other. Feels like it was written by a 12-year-old with a twisted mind. And when you think things couldn't get worst, believe me, the do! Also, the editor probably had just learned how to use final cut, and wanted to try all the resources, doesn't matter if it would make sense or not.

It's hard to believe that someone comes up with such a bad story, finds people to produce this thing, than gets people to act on it, people actually released this piece of junk, and, most incredible of all, people watch this thing!!! Please, don't waste your time. This is not worth watching even if it is to see a how bad a movie can be. It's just torture.
