Three twisted tales from the seamy side of Scotland and the mind of Irvine Welsh. The Granton Star Cause: in the same day a young Leith lad is dumped by his football team, his girlfriend and his parents, arrested and beaten up by the police and turned into a fly by God, whom he meets in a pub. The Soft Touch: a man is too soft to do anything when his wife moves in with the thug upstairs. The Acid House: while tripping on acid, Coco Bryce is struck by lightning, causing him to switch bodies with a newborn baby.Written by

Like Irvine Welsh I come from Leith so I`m not having a go at the Edinburgh/Scottish underclass. What I am having a go at are independant British film makers - None of whom were brought up on sink estates - who think people are going to pay good or bad money to go the cinema to watch sensationalist rubbish like THE ACID HOUSE. Who in their right mind wants to watch 3 short plotless films about nothing in particuler , full of explicit sex and extreme swearing when they can sit at home and experience similiar things.
TRAINSPOTTING had its faults but unlike THE ACID HOUSE it did have its good points. There is nothing to praise in THE ACID HOUSE. If you have the choice of either renting this piece of garbage or going to the pub , please go to the pub .
