Storyline

A group of students at a liberal arts college in Minneapolis is faced with expulsion if their final papers in philosophy class are not satisfactory. As a result, the inept group of friends decides to experiment with a series of illicit drugs, in an effort to expand their cognitive horizons and help them better understand some of the mind-bending concepts of the course. Each is taken on a different adventure as the students begin to realize how severely they've underestimated the effects of the drugs. Written by Elliot Diviney

A Weird Mix of Genres, And Quite Clever
18 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of students at Twin Cities Technical College is faced with expulsion if their final papers in philosophy class are not satisfactory. As a result, the inept group of friends decides to experiment with a series of illicit drugs, in an effort to expand their cognitive horizons and help them better understand some of the mind-bending concepts of the course.

I went into this seeing it as a low budget film with no buzz, and the only name I recognized being attached to it was Sarah French, Minnesota model and actress, as well as horror convention staple. The next time I see her at a show, I will have to say hello.

My suspicions seemed to be confirmed when I heard the song over the credits, which is very reminiscent of the music when the dead rise in "Return of the Living Dead". Cheesy, derivative music does not often bode well for a film.

I should say that things turned around quickly. Yes, the acting is cheesy and the film quality is a bit poor. But it is a work of genius in disguise, with some fantastic writing. I loved the "Back to the Future" question and the use of the notorious Wilhelm Nonsense theory of time travel.

By the time Duke Surgebottom arrived I was impressed, and then completely won over by the singing book. That song was wonderful, and as a former philosophy major it really hit home.
