Storyline

The story "Alice in Wonderland" is used as a metaphor about the dangers of accidental drug use among children. Curious Alice's trip to Wonderland is not through the rabbit hole, but rather through her home, where the medicine and kitchen cabinets hold substances of lure but danger. After ingesting one of these substances, Alice, now in the Wonderland of her mind, has an altered sense of reality. In her new psychedelic world, she is exposed to more and more drugs, which she may take based on her impaired judgment from the initial drug use. Written by Huggo

Another Anti-Drug Film That Makes You Want to Do Drugs
15 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

Curious Alice (1968)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

You know you're in trouble when the U.S. Department of Health produces a movie that ends up being distributed by Something Weird Video forty-years after it was made. This is a take-off on Alice in Wonderland as a young girl (named Alice of course) starts to get curious about the various "bad" things in her mommy's cabinets. Soon this curiosity leads her to Wonderland where she sees a wide range of creatures doing bad drugs. If you want a serious take on drug abuse then it's best you don't show this thing to your kids because after viewing it I'd say that the majority of people will be wanting to light up a joint. This isn't a smart or intelligent look at drug abuse and in all reality it really seems as if someone made it to drop some acid to. The animation is actually very nice looking in its own right and the way it tries to create various hallucinations was very effective and I'd say this here is something that will appeal to those who like to watch certain items while out of their minds. At 11-minutes the thing certainly drags in spots but there's enough going on here to watch it once if you enjoy seeing this anti-drug movies that usually go against their own cause.
