"The Weird World of LSD" is one of those anti-drug films that, like "Reefer Madness" and "Marihuana", purport to warn the audience away from drug use, while at the same time sensationalizing it's subject for all they can. Episodic in nature, the film shows the effects of LSD on various people (sans dialogue; the whole movie is narrated). Not all of the "trips" taken are negative, making one wonder just what the producer's aim was. But the most striking aspect of the film is that it was filmed in black and white. Apparently the film's budget didn't include enough money for color stock, but wouldn't you think that a movie about LSD could hardly be made without it?? Strange.
