I own a VHS copy of ALICE IN ACIDLAND, purchased from Something Weird years ago. I am a big fan of 60's exploitation / drug trip flicks and ALICE IN ACIDLAND has always been one of my favorites.

I finally upgraded to DVD and I was completely disappointed.

This DVD of ALICE is a cut, censored version of the film. Ten to fifteen second chunks have been lifted here and there, leaving jarring jump cuts in their places. And near the end of the film, an entire scene has been eliminated. The cut footage is all shots containing full frontal nudity and/or the more brutal violence.

The cuts are obvious - no attempt was made to make them flow with the movie... the music and voice over narration cut awkwardly with each instance of trimmed footage.

The run time info on the box is even wrong... on the box, the original run time of ALICE is listed: 62 minutes. But the version on the DVD only runs 53 minutes with all the cuts.

I have been a Something Weird fan for years... But now I am disappointed in the company. They used to be a haven for unfiltered, non-PC, full-on-raunchy exploitation, horror, psycodelic, and just downright odd cinema... stuff the masses wouldn't care for. So why CUT a movie to (presumably) appeal to the masses???

I'll hesitate before I buy another Something Weird DVD.

I give this DVD 2 stars instead of one because the other material on this DVD is quite good. But I don't think this DVD is worth your money.

This DVD contains two films entitled Alice in Acidland and Smoke And Flesh. The movies both deal with the ramifications of using heavy duty mind altering drugs with some good but mostly bad consequences for the users in their real lives as well on their "trips." The cinematography is not anything special; and the choreography could have been written by a film school student.

Alice In Acidland explores the drastic downward spiral of Alice who is exposed to mind altering drugs by a teacher at her junior college. Alice, once the "All American Girl;" slowly but surely descends into an increasingly psychotic state as a result of her drug use and eventual drug addiction. The movie also makes the point that this drug use leads to promiscuity; and I suppose that was rather scandalous "front page news" at that time. The real tragedy, however, is drastically displayed as Alice loses control of herself and her mind whenever she takes the drugs. The scenes from Alice's most memorable drug trip are in color; but then you get the final shot in Alice In Acidland. This last scene is intended to be a shocker so I won't spoil anything for you here.

Smoke And Flesh explores the topic of how drugs can work for some good but mostly bad consequences. Yes, the drugs reduce inhibitions to romantic relationships; but the "bad trips" the people go on make you wonder if it was worth it. Smoke And Flesh has more of a plot than Alice In Acidland which simply shows young ladies using drugs and then getting themselves into situations that they otherwise wouldn't have experienced. Smoke And Flesh goes further; it starts out as a party with drug use and then adds in a biker group to crash the party and cause problems for the partygoers.

Another interesting title in the Something Weird series, but interesting mostly only as a late-night curio of sleazy 60's weirdness.

"Alice," a low-budget skin flick, is about an ordinary L.A. teen and her swift descent to the looney-bin once she's lured by her seductive female teacher into the world of drink, drugs, sun and sex.

That description makes it sound much more engaging than it actually is: Alice is... to put it delicately... not overly attractive and not excessively talented as an actress. The film quality is sketchy (lots of jump-cuts and segments without audio) and the action is glacially paced. We're talking slow going and most of the sex involves Alice writhing and making spastic "oh!" faces in response to simply being held by her lovers (no touching, basically).

A sequence in which Alice drops acid is presented in color and it's so slow and dull it makes you wonder if the filmmakers mistook Ny-Quil Liqui-Gels for LSD.

If you're looking for funny sound-bites or want a wacky, unseen film to project on the wall of a loft-party, this is all you. It's not good for much else.

"Smoke and Flesh" is actually a lot more interesting. Editor, director, cinematographer Joseph Mangine had clearly seen, and been influenced by the French New Wave and also movies like "Touch of Evil." The story (one hipster's swingin' party is interrupted by volatile bikers on acid) ain't much but visually there's style to spare. The opening motorcycle ride through New York is so cool and atmospheric it could've been filmed by some video wunderkind circa 1998 and there are other highlights as well -- a "Pulp Fiction"-esque joint rolling, a spooky attack in an attic and a nicely-shot sequence in which whip cream is applied to the body of a young party girl.

The first thing you need to know about this particular Something Weird DVD is that it definitely puts its worst foot forward. I cannot speak to how badly "Alice in Acidland" has been edited/censored, but any additional footage would have to be an improvement. The title character is Alice Trenton (Colleen Murphy), who is turned on to drugs and sex by her college French teacher, a lesbian who appears to be actively recruiting. Before long Alice, in the words of the narrator, "proves she belongs in the sex for pleasure inner circle."

This 1968 sexploitation film is one of those where the main point of the plot is to show naked women, by which I mean that eventually the women end up entirely naked, the men are down to boxers (or boxers and black sox for one unfortunate guy), and what ever they end up doing the key thing is not to obscure the camera's view of the naked breasts. After a lot of slapstick foreplay it becomes clear that writhing is a big thing in this movie. Then, remembering that the point here is supposedly drug more than sex, the film shifts to a lot of pot smoking and then Alice goes on her acid trip. Suddenly the movie is in color (I guess Alice is over the rainbow rather than down the rabbit hole) and what follows is a lot of stretching, lots of eye makeup, and a whole lot of writhing against music that is not particular psychadelic before the movie ends with a heavy handed moral lesson and the word "END" written on a drawing of a bikini bottom.

"Smoke and Flesh" is easily twice as good, mainly because first time writer-director Joseph Mangine is really a cinematographer who would go on to shoot "The Lords of Flashbush.
