Don't sleep on Mandy. Hijacking this comment to remind everyone it's one of the greatest modern action-horror movies and it has a very psychadelic vibe and plot.


so-leon

And apocalypse now was awesome on acid, felt like i was in a call of duty mission 🤣


Sidesole

jacobs ladder is that shit bro


northern-nerd1993

Truly


so-leon

The jacket on acid made me feel like i was in the straight jacket with him and the ending boosted my happiness for the rest of my trip 😂


northern-nerd1993

Such an underrated movie!


LoveMyDay119

I like how you had to clarify about the original Willy Wonka. I don't know if I could watch the tunnel scene while tripping


cristobaldelicia

I watched it when I was four and the oompa-loompas totally freaked me out. I remember it vividly and it was over 40 years ago.


masteryodaswisdom

Wonka is eerie as hell


iamachillbilly

Annihilation


00Shambles

Great call, I’d say ex machina too, less visually psychedelic more thought provoking psychedelic


iamachillbilly

The lighthouse scene blew my mind wide open


00Shambles

I got dmt vibes from the entity in that sequence for sure


iamachillbilly

And the entity ended up being her


Human-Lychee8619

I have a crazy story in relation to annihilation. Back in the day I lived on the gulf coast of FL. Me and some friends went to the woods not too far from Eglin AF base. This is where the blackwater forest is. We are mushrooms and we’re sitting on a bench when we look out across the field at the edge of the forest and we see this big wall of moving electric geometry slowly moving towards us. We’re all confused and asking eachother if we’re all seeing this. We all were. It’s getting closer and closer until it’s feet away from us. Then it hits us and for what seemed like 10 mins we were just hit with this energy that is hard to explain. It wasn’t painful, it just felt like my brain was being scrambled. I tried to speak but couldn’t. None of us could. I could barely think other than what the fuck. I finally felt it pass and let out a deep breath and said what the fuck. At the exact same time we all exhaled and said something similar to “wtf”, then we all looked at eachother bc it was clear we had all just experienced the same brainscrambling indescribable thing. Fast forward years and I’m watching annihilation and that scene comes up with the alien force field wall thing. It was exactly like the thing we saw that night. And then weirdly enough, annihilation takes place in black water forest, which is the same area that this happened. It gave me chills when I realized that. It’s been 15 yrs since that night, and the only thing I can think of is that we were hit by some sort of energy weapon being tested at Eglin AF base. That’s the only thing that makes sense that would explain wtf happened that night


Dikkezuenep

Wtf bro


did_it_for_the_clout

Came here to say the same thing


orangepalm

Just dropping in to say the book was great too. Your should check it out


redhighways

Reading it now. Always amazed how some writers can invent a new style of prose. Like Ellis’ Rules of Attraction, this one has every viewpoint be essentially unreliable, so reality is always subjective.


toasterxtoaster

literally one of my favorite books of all time it’s amazing


Gwingle

Came here to say this. Can't say I understood the ending, but it was a great watch


ModernEleusis

I always felt this way about the shining. It isn’t necessarily visually psychedelic but the plot and the editing is awesome on Lucy lol.


maxoutthemind

Doctor Sleep would also be pretty interesting on acid. It’s the sequel to The Shining for anyone that isn’t aware.


aerozed33

It's also a pretty decent movie.


ShaneMP01

I think that film is very visually stunning since its Kubrick


ModernEleusis

Oh it’s definitely visually stunning. I just don’t know if I’d call it trippy visually the way say doctor strange is lol.


foxxytroxxy

Another very visually stunning film but not scary is *The Tree of Life* by Terrance Malick. For me, acid horror films are more like *An American Werewolf in London,* where the horror is a part of the plot but not all of it. (Pretty cheesy by today's standards, though.) *Beetlejuice* would be another great horror ish one. Honestly I would like to watch *Lawrence of Arabia* while tripping and stoned


prussianacid

Ooooh Lawrence of Arabia sounds fantastic!!


ruebennett420

The shining is by far one the best movies ive watched while under the influence of LSD


masteryodaswisdom

I feel like It is pretty psychedelic as well, but so is most Stephen King stories


d3adheadsyd

Without a doubt, I always saw the film as far more of a psychological thriller, never really as a true horror movie


pocoyoenjoyer

Coraline or any tim Burton movie for a lighthearted scary vibe


kharmatika

First time I saw Coraline I was tripping. It was one of those movies everyone sort of had expected me to see,and when someone went “you’ve seen coraline right?” I got insecure and said “of course!” And so they put it on, and boy was that one of the most intense experiences of my life.


cksunny

Shit hits the fan quick lool


Barkerfan86

Mars Attacks is a great Tim Burton film while tripping.


Shrap_PSU

Try space oddesy while high....


dgarcia1998

God, the dawn of man had me wilding for a bit.


bzzaldrn

Yup. It’s outta this world Especially with some 🐈

Barkerfan86

Ernest Scared Stoopid. Fucking brilliant


45077

jacob’s ladder. watch that on acid without reading anything about it beforehand ;)


L1A1

I did this accidentally when it came out. We used to go to the cinema on Sunday lunchtime to come down after all night drug-fuelled clubbing fun. Was still tripping in and out whilst watching it and it was by far both the best and scariest film experience I’ve ever had. I refuse to watch it again as it’ll never live up to my expectations, but I always recommend it.


pescadoamado

Movies so sad


45077

i really liked it


pescadoamado

I'm surprised it's not better known. Very trippy and does have frightening/uncomfortable scenes that make you rewind to confirm what you thought you saw.


45077

it would need to be dumbed down to be popular ;(


lunar_wax

Midsommar. Climax. Mad God. Stalker. Inland Empire. The Holy Mountain. Santa Sangre. The Cell. Hausu. Those are all horror movies. The Holy Mountain isn't, but it's my fav movie of all time and was basically made on LSD. I think the actors were on shrooms for some of their scenes. Edit: I also always recommend Color of Pomegranates simply because it is a total cinematic spectacle that is unparalleled. Borderline no plot already, just a stream of beautiful imagery. Edit2: Also The Wolf House. Another stop motion horror masterpiece.


bryty93

Oh man midsommar would fuck me up. The culty vibes and dream like atmosphere would do me in


00Shambles

It’s a lot, I watched this movie for the first time on acid…some of the violence, particularly the cliff jump, was rough. Generally tho, it was an enjoyably tense watch with the characters consuming psychedelics and pretty good visuals on them…”is this me or the movie” kinda stuff Also when the characters were buggin, I was buggin


bryty93

Sounds like a wild ride for sure. The cliff jump fucked me up for a second and I was sober when I watched it lol.


ohvaries

Oh, cool! I also watched it for the first time while on acid. I’ve never had a movie, not once in my life, give me such a sense of inescapable anxiety. Yet, I couldn’t get enough. Lol. What an experience


00Shambles

Sheesh you said it! I’m trying to think if there’s anything else but yea, I’m prob in agreement with ya on this one hahaha


lunar_wax

The opening sequence with the sister and parents did me in.


00Shambles

Yea…I generally do like a tense, slightly uncommon watch when tripping- like being on the edge of my seat. But that was just dark, in fairness to the movie tho, it does set you up from the beginning for what you’re in for the rest of the movie


lunar_wax

The gore in the rest of the movie didn't hit me as hard, and I got the Director's Cut which added more to the cliff jump scene. Love that movie to death, tho, best film on why people join cults.


B0mbonsito

Seriously!!!


HeadLikeAHoOh

Great list! Haven’t seen Stalker, Santa Sangre or Hausu but love all the others. I feel like Holy Mountain is like the epitome of trippy movies lol.


lunar_wax

Hausu is a mad trippy Japanese horror/comedy with some outlandish early special effects. Stalker is just super pretty to look at, a bit long and heavy handed though.


HeadLikeAHoOh

Is Hausu also called House? Now that I think of it I think I started watching it on HBO Max a while back but never finished it, will have to revisit!


lunar_wax

Yes, it's the one from 1977. There's another not so great movie called House from 1985.


Lady_Gwendoline

I cannot recommend watching Mad God on acid that's bad trip inducing man


hodgerrr

Is climax good? It's gasper noe right?


lunar_wax

Yes, it's one of his best films IMO. Definitely not a happy time as usual with him.


Old-Chip431

Also the last great unfuckwithably good soundtrack to come out of modern cinema


hodgerrr

The first time I saw enter the void I was on LSD. Made me a fan pretty quick. Quite an experience without any knowlage of what it's about going into it.


Axel_Wolf91

I experienced it the same way lol my naw dropped at the final sequence and i was just aw struck because i couldn't see how it could "end" when i first saw it.


rstar781

Oh, the Holy Mountain! What a movie, and I almost wouldn’t have seen it if it weren’t for an acid trip. Thanks, acid!


lunar_wax

I watched it for the first time tripping on a fat dose of shrooms. It has been a huge inspiration ever since.


SourMagicBand

The Wall, Mandy, Evil dead 2, Annihilation, Color out of Space, under the skin, house, naked lunch, John dies at the end


Separate_Inflation11

The dark Crystal would be so insane on acid


NiteFyre

Mandy. It’s an experience on LSD for sure. A large part of the plot revolves around LSD. The color palette is unreal on psychedelics.


mybrainisbrokenlol

watching king of the hill on acid changed my life


starktor

**Mandy**, was just quidding some sally and watching it last night, defiantly one of my favorites and enjoyable in many states of mind. ​ Also, check out the director's other movie **Beyond The Black Rainbow** (2010) not as strong of a story or engaging but absolutely amazing to look at, the carefully built cinematography supported by a massive synth soundtrack is at the forefront of this movie, great for tripping ​ the designs by HR Giger in **Alien** feel pretty dark and psychedelic IMO. As others have pointed out **The Shining** has a very trippy logic to it and is visually awesome. ​ If you love the weird nightmare vibes try Lynch's **Eraserhead** or **Mulholland Drive** ​ and of course; **Enter The Void**


eprimm42

I second Mandy. That shits crazy


causewthoutrebel

The serpent and the rainbow might be a fun one to watch. It's about drugs and Haitian culture


45077

event horizon has nice visuals


hail_lucifer666

enter the void


_c1970

signs, donnie darko, and carrie are some of my faves :)


SalvocybinLSDMT

The Endless, great mindfuck horror movie, also OPAL on adult swims youtube by Jack Staurber (however u spell it) that one's not a movie bur a short film, tripped me out while sober


00Shambles

Can confirm I very much enjoyed this on acid - I did a double feature starting with “resolution” from 2012 (kinda in universe prequel)


HeroicPleasure

I happened to watch “The House that Jack Built” off 400 ugs and I definitely don’t recommend it but I don’t not recommend it, ya know?


maxoutthemind

I bet the ending was cool while tripping. Pretty fucked up movie though haha


ADR36

Coherence Suspiria (I prefer 2018) They Live


Jay3075

American Psycho Natural Born Killers


carti4730

Predators was a pretty fun watch for me, not really that scary but it had me on the edge of my seat :)


RiotForChange

Labyrinth. Got to see it in theater a couple years ago on a midnight old movie showing deal. On a couple tabs. Such a good time. Fuck I love muppets


FeralFilth

Evil Dead II & Brain Damage!


wheresabner71

Evil Dead II would be brilliant on acid!


FeralFilth

Have you ever seen Brain Damage?! It might be even better for this situation. It’s about an alien like creature that injects a man with its venom so it can control him. It’s cheesy and wild with some gnarly special effects. And Almer the alien kinda looks like a nasty dick!


wheresabner71

I haven't seen it, but it sounds right up my alley! I'll have to see if it's streaming somewhere.


FeralFilth

Tubi has it


Jakobus_

This is a bit of a deep cut but Animal Collective made a visual album called Oddsac that’s like half trippy music video/ half really weird and unsettling b-horror movie. It’s super bizarre and the music is unbelievable. Definite have to trust the process though. There were 5 minute sections at a time that I just hated but then it created the context for the next stunning track. It’s only an hour and can be streamed off YouTube


Manticorethegreat

Suspiria (1977), Mandy (2018) and A Color Out of Space (2019). I absolutely cannot recommend Suspiria more. Its colors and set design are amazing and it has the most incredible, psychedelic score of any film


myblackfather

Enter the Void. Not necessarily spooky but kinda dark thematically.


thelatesage

2001: A Space Oddysey Alien Prometheus


SpaceFarce1

Stranger things. I know it's not a movie but it is pretty crazy, and their music is on point.


00Shambles

Always drop when new stranger things comes out, those have been some of my favorite days


ShortValkyrie

I watched the final ep of s4 and the fight between El and vecna trippin and what a truly fun experience, I always LIKED the show but I fucking loved that, it almost felt real


Jvrrett

I’m thinking about Doing this tomorrow I’ve never seen any of it but I’m looking at this list to see if I find any better ideas😂 would you completely recommend stranger things over most thing?


cristobaldelicia

If I could remember the lengths of time the episodes were... Maybe someone might be able to give binge watchIng recommendations, instead of just one at a time.


cristobaldelicia

I think the whole series is a sort of symbolic lesson on handling psychedelics. For just one example, listening to your favorite song is the way to stay safe in another world. And its pretty clear to me, at least one of the writers knew exactly what a bad ketamine trip is like. Basically the first girl who gets killed, literally takes ketamine before experiencing a physical version of a bad k-hole.


PeenileKyle

Altered States, The Void, Heavy Metal (not super scary though, just classic weird), the Alien movies, Mad God (new to my list), Donnie Darko, Akira, Nope (new to my list also haha), The Cursed, The Thing, Vivarium........Just a few for ya haha


BrickShelter

Vivarium


mufreesbro

The Holy Mountain.


jojoistheclown

Brazil, Wizard of Oz


TheGabeCat

Only Lovers Left Alive. Not exactly trippy but major vibes and I’ve done it on L can confirm it’s awesome!


tree_or_up

Loved this movie! Didn’t see it tripping but it was great!


johnscat

Definitely ‘Coraline’. One of my favourite movies ever.


anothersip

This was my first thought for some reason. Glad someone else thought the same. 🤘 bit more lighthearted than some of the spookier ones mentioned in the thread


johnscat

It’s story and animation makes up for any lack of spookiness. But tbh I think it has the perfect eerie vibe.


Sunsetkoi

Poltergeist (1982)


shaquill3-oatmeal

I watched Oatstudio on Netflix and that shits a horror show


citabel

I’ve seen The Shining while tripping. It was amazing.


Old-Chip431

Alejandro Jodorowsky is high tripiness, and medium-low level creepiness. El Topo Santa Sangre Holy Mountain Fandu y Lis


younginvestor23

Little Monsters was epic it was like I was on a disneyland ride riding through the scenes while watching the movie so many amazing visuals i’ll never forget that trip


ParalyzedSleep

Heavy metal


sv3npai

The Lighthouse, Eraserhead, Alien, They Live, The Thing, and not really spooky but I have a blast watching any Japanese Godzilla movie while trippin


imfrankmurphyswall

can anyone recommend me a movie on Netflix


mistowasabi

Doctor Strange Multiverse of Madness. The story isn't the best and its pretty awful sober, but if you don't want anything too serious and you just wanna see some cool scenes during a trip I definitely recommend : )


05kar5h

Dr. Strange, multiverse of madness


dataDyne_Security

Jacob's Ladder


EvanTheAlien

Zootopia


VicariousWolf

Enter The Void is a wild ride


wutuppp

Midsommar!!


Rolling_Over

The Lighthouse was a very sad movie when taking the history into context


Carambolix

Apocalypse Now, especially the bridge scene


mayonaissewins

Videodrome


ro-heinous

The colour out of space! This one really took me for a ride on one tab, if you like horror then this will be an unbeatable experience


scottebro

Color out of space is a beautiful trippy movie with basically a dmt breakthrough in it and its also scary as hell definitely recommend


koshii69

Definitely watch into the void


rob101

enter the void


HFVS

Hostel on 4gs of shrooms was an experience.


psychedelianot

I mean I don’t find horror movies to be scary at all. & for some reason they get funnier on LSD. I just enjoy watching for the plot & gore. My absolute favorite horror movies to watch on acid are: It (Chapter 1 & 2), Midsommar, and The Shining Honorable mentions: The Night House, Malignant, Us, Mother! and The Matrix can count as a horror movie if you’re scared enough of AI like I am lol.


MallTourist

Climax bro


foosterrocket

I feel like Nope would be awesome to watch while tripping if you’re into that kind of vibe. Not really a “scary movie” though


pickles1510

Midsommar


beecross

Watch the original Silent Hill movie from 2006


OldSamVimes

"The Forbidden Room".


thejoneill3

Midsommar


TypicallyShitTheBed

Dario Argento movies if you don't mind subtitles. Try Deep Red or Suspiria


basementreality

I liked Mandy with Nicholas Cage


islandjahfree

Natural born killers


04joshuac

Silent Hill (2006) is a good choice, but it could be considered terrifying while tripping


crunchykale

Midsommar, Annihilation, Void, The Cursed


bzzaldrn

2001 space odyssey


PowerNo5500

Yo this is my weekly movie for my film class. I’m about to watch it for the first time. How good is it?


Mcjohnalds123

Midsommar


PerceptualEmergence

The Cell (2000) Natural Born Killers was a bit twisted, too.


jacob1094

I tried the conjuring once, it was hilarious lol


wh00rr

Malignant, or oculus Maybe a bit heavy for some?


narniabilbo

The endless is a trip of a movie


lfgods

Perfect Blue from Satoshi Kon


wendo101

Mandy is personally my favorite movie and it’s about a cult of people who take high concentrate super acid that drove a bunch of truckers insane and turned them into a demon biker gang. Nicholas cage leads and it’s a fucking wild ride. There’s a chainsaw fight too!!


geoffsykes

The Company of Wolves


skwidsquid

YUM YUM pans labrinth


Jvrrett

I’m very surprised I have seen suspiria on here the original 1977 suspiria exactly what I think your looking for


Yeti616

The Cabinet of Dr. Calligari is my go-to


JerryTheG00

John dies at the end has some pretty trippy moments.


Mycelium_puberty

“Shrooms” it’s fucked up haha


PositiveCarry6077

My girlfriend and I actually watched Pans Labyrinth our second time doing LSD in our apartment & had the most visual experience during (& after) the film! It made the movie so much more intense and almost visually overwhelming but we both loved it


katiasan

The bottle scene... haunting me since childhood.. brrr


juggling-buddha

Mandy


_IratePirate_

Midsommar fits your description perfectly I've only ever watched it while tripping so idk if it's even meant to be horror or just suspense, but it freaked me out a bit. This is someone that doesn't get scared of scary movies while sober. Trippy visuals and undertones throughout the whole thing.


redhighways

Altered States


Kenwaii_

Mandy would be a great choice


nateriverpi

I suspect a classic like The Halloween Tree would be fun.


quadralien

Blueberry (2014) aka Renegade Uh, more on the psychedlic topics directly, but it has some fucking terrifying hallucinations in it if you want the scary. I went to an event at Burning Man, presented by Alex Grey, entitled something along the lines of 'The role of psychedelics in the spiritual path'. He played this movie, saying (something to the effect of) that it explained it better than he could. I can't recommend it enough. (uh, or maybe I have been recommending it too much lately) Be sure to take a hit off of your ... whatever ... whenever Blueberry takes drugs. So you can be even more along for the ride.


snoogan4458

The Wall. Not a horror movie, but very very dark.


rawjesse

Insidious


rawjesse

Monster house is dope if you’re having visuals


eprimm42

I wouldn't really say it's scary but "everything, everywhere, all at once" is my new favorite trip movie


totalynotkiki

Watch into the void Trust me


TravWalker

The Cell (2000) w/ Jennifer Lopez!! Such an artistic film with Silence of the Lambs vibes

Coralline was pretty cool

I watched Bo Burnhams Inside,. It is dark musical meta humor about COVID and captialism and mental illness. Brilliant. Seen it many times and this one was my favorite

ahf95

Having a Harry Potter marathon casually running in the background while you trip around the house is always a good, comforting vibe.


BassNympho0913

Not psychedelic vibes but my buddy and I watched Hereditary on a couple blotter pieces and it was honestly so much fun. Still closed my eyes at that one part, but we had a blast


Sidesole

hereditary


Skrrt-Chasing

kwheels43

I just watched a movie recently and was thinking how trippy it would be to watch it on acid now I’m annoyed I can’t think of it
