Altered States

1980

Ken Russell
Director
Warner Brothers
Studio

What starts off as an intellectual look at the state of the human psyche suddenly changes gear and becomes a rambunctious monster movie. Disowned by author Paddy Chayefsky and make-up man Dick Smith, jarring in style, and packed with Ken Russell's trippy pyrotechnics - great fun.
