    Good!

    This movie is SUCH a head trip! It is a simple plot about a young girl who wishes to visit her mother's old home with friends. Mayhem, blood, VERY bizarre scenes, Japanese school-girls and a little nudity ensue.If you have NEVER taken a drug your entire life, or would like to know what it feels like to have a bad acid trip, watch this film!
