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

Just an awful and boring movie
I was hoping that this might be a corny 'period piece' like so many from that era. Certainly most of those films are not much in the first place but this one was just really dull. It was like someone's personal story which only they seemed to think of as being interesting. It was not. Most of the story was talk talk talk though there were a couple of odd parts where it seemed someone was on drugs and seeing scary mask faces. Yawn. Someone posted a glowing review of this movie, and I can only say that one would have to have been fried out on drugs to find this movie even more than slightly interesting.
If it's not available on VHS, it should be. But ONLY on VHS. Not on any other media newer than the 1970's. Really just a very poor film.
