[Fonda] takes a trip with no retribution at all: no death, no disillusionment, but much bikinied girls on sea shores, swirling psychedelia, and mumbling of 'Wow!' by the obligatory Dennis Hopper in the land of a thousand visual clichés. Full Review

Rating: C -- Curio item: a cultural artifact that reflects the zeitgeist but shallow and disappointing as LSD feature Full Review

Roger Corman and Peter Fonda, trying to do for LSD what they did for motorcycles in The Wild Angels. It doesn't take. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/5 -- These images more closely resemble a bad dream following an overdose of pepperoni-and-onion pizza than the result of ingesting hallucinogenic drugs. Full Review

It's not conventionally a good movie; there's little plot to speak of, and 83 minutes of psychedelia becomes a touch repetitive. However, it's still a captivating curio. Full Review

Some of the camera tricks are corny, but Corman has created one of the most lyrical expressions of sexual pleasure I've seen in the movies, and it's all perfectly decent, too, thanks to prisms and projections. Full Review

Unconnected scenes begin to spin off the screen with increasing speed and with no attempt at explanation. Full Review

Product Description:

With The Trip, Roger Corman delves deep inside the mind of the artist. TV commercial director Paul Groves (Peter Fonda, The Wild Angels), with both his personal and professional life in crisis due to a crumbling marriage and stagnating career, begins to experiment with LSD to free himself artistically.

Paul s trip provides the viewer with psychedelic and hallucinatory moments worthy of Fellini, as an onslaught of strange, beautiful and terrifying images flood Paul s subconscious and leads to a revelatory denouement.

Featured in The Trip are Bruce Dern (co-star of the Corman directed The Wild Angels) as John, the self-proclaimed LSD guru who sends Paul on his trip; Susan Strasberg (Psych-Out) as Paul s estranged wife; and Dennis Hopper (Chattahoochee) as a drug-culture everyman.

The Trip, written for the screen by Jack Nicholson (Psych-Out, Ironweed) would be one of several collaborations with mentor Roger Corman including The Little Shop of Horrors, The Raven and The Terror.
