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
TV Guide

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

Rating: 3/5 -- Part exploitation flick, part non-preachy message picture, this fractured love-in, scripted by Jack Nicholson and told almost entirely through rapid-fire visuals, is a fascinating period piece. Full Review

In trying to visualize a notion of what Peter Fonda goes through on an LSD trip, Roger Corman has simply resorted to a long succession of familiar cinematic images, accompanied by weird music and sounds. Full Review

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

[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

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.
