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

Bad Trip
30 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a high school in the suburbs, the teenager Richard (Michael Mandell) is very popular, good student and successful with the women. His younger brother Tommy (James M. Hausler) is weird, outcast and jealous of Richard, and his best friend is the aggressive Colby Francis (Christopher Clark), who is hated by the other students and speaks like the rapper Eminem. When the slut cheerleader Sacha decides to have sex with Tommy, she invites the trio of friends for a party at her home. Colby buys mushroom from the drug dealer Brent (Jason Williams) and after sniffing cocaine with Richard, he prepares a cocktail with the dope. Richard, Tommy and Colby drink the mushroom and have a bad trip with tragic consequences.

"Trip Out" is an amateurish movie with a good potential. The screenplay is interesting, following the individual actions along the day of Tommy, Richard, Colby and concludes showing the revenge of Brent against Colby. However, the relationship between Richard and Tommy should have been better developed to make more sense the tragic and violent conclusion. The acting is very reasonable considering that the cast is amateur; the camera work in Tommy's block is confused, but works better in Richard and Colby modules; the edition is probably the best in this movie, perfectly entwining the scenes and giving consistency to the story. Considering that this is a low-budget movie, written, directed and performed by a young and green cast, and the low price of the DVD (US$ 4.00), I liked it. I really enjoy finding this type of original and refreshing work, in my opinion better than many blockbusters. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Viagem Suicida" ("Suicide Trip")
