Currently available to watch on Netflix, this film is bonkers but also has a certain charm. Sitting somewhere between surreal horror, sci-fi and fantasy, it tells the story of two friends who become embroiled with a designer drug that lets them see things that are definitely there, but, thankfully, people in the normal realm cannot see. Gory, silly, gross and funny, it's all told through an interview in a café with a series of flashbacks. It's not big budget but it has some neat ideas and it kept me entertained.
