Storyline

A drama set in Spain where a small group of American young adults is living. The leader of the group is a drug dealer. The others are there living carefree lives as beatniks. The leader has more nefarious aims in mind, and uses drugs to lure the others into lives of crime. Most of the film is in black and white, but there is a psychedelic sequence depicting the purported effects of the group using LSD which was filmed in color. Purportedly intended as a warning against the dangers of pill-popping Sixties hedonism along the lines of 1936's Reefer Madness, the film's primary purpose appears to have been titillation, thus landing it in the genre of exploitation cinema. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Tame exploitation flick
27 December 2002 | by JohnSealSee all my reviews

Billy Williams (Danny Stone, looking like a young and broody Bob Dylan) is an American drifter in Ibiza, one of the Spanish Balaeric Islands. His mother stops sending him money and he's forced to take up a life of crime and drug abuse. He's manipulated by Eric (George Montgomery), a sleazy importer and amateur chemist who likes to spike peoples drinks with his homemade drug cocktails. The film hints at all sorts of debauchery but can't bring itself to actually show any drug usage other than the occasional furtive pot puff. Shot in an horrifically ugly brown tint, the best parts of the film are the Brakhage-style psychedelic trip sequences. Not the worst of its kind, the film benefits from location photography, but overall looks like it was made five to ten years earlier.
