1.0 out of 5 stars What a bummer! March 24, 2004
The Trip and psych-Out, two great movies in same package, on DVD...sounds too good to be true, and is too good to be true, I'm afraid, since BOTH of the movies are shorter versions from the originals. So be aware, if you are about to buy this DVD, you won't get the whole movie. The movies have really been mutilated, I was really angry to notice how ridiculously they have been cut. Especially Psych-Out suffers from this mutilation. Since I'm writing my thesis about the 60's films, I really feel these movies earn a better treatment. I feel cheated, but I quess there is no way getting your money back if you live in Finland like I do. So, be aware, it's a rip-off. I'm afraid that we serious movie collector's still have stick to our precious VHS!

3.0 out of 5 stars Edited version is a real bummer, man. May 3, 2003
By A Customer
I know Psych-Out pretty well, so I was very happy when it was released on DVD. Unfortunatly, scene after scene on this disk has been edited, or cut short, so they could fit two movies on one disk, I guess. Max Julian's excellent acid trip is practically cut out of the movie. You miss him paint 'love' over the stop sign as he babbles "beautiful... really beautiful." You might notice that 'Incense and Peppermints' ends abruptly early. This is really awful. I'm sorry to say it, because I've wanted this movie on disk for so long. What more can I say? A fun movie, but you don't get all of it on this disk. I haven't been able to bring myself to see if they left The Trip intact, it's a weaker movie though. These movies are worth adding to your collection. It's just too bad you don't get the whole movie. Why did they do this?

3.0 out of 5 stars Half-baked brownies? January 5, 2004
By TeeBee
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Was there nothing that modern technology could do to make the soundtrack to "The Trip" listenable? It sounds muffled and dialogue is sometimes hard to follow - I don't recall having this problem when I saw the film theatrically. Maybe they were trying to re-create the drive-in speaker experience. And why on earth edit "Psych-Out," truthfully the better of the two films? Extras are okay, and thanks for the letterboxing, but this should have been a four-star reissue, at least.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rack Focus! May 15, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This disc is so worth getting just for the mini-documentaries included for each. If you have any interest at all in filmmaking, they're even better. Director Richard Rush discusses his technique for the film "Psych Out." If you're familiar with the concept of rack focus, he discusses how he shot his film built entirely around that concept. Using it in lieu of cuts and fades. Fascinating! There's also technical stuff about "The Trip" and how they achieved the special effects. Even funnier is the fact that Roger Corman dropped acid for research purposes! (What people will do for their art!) Bruce Dern is highly amusing as he discusses how drugs ruined people's work ethic and habits back in the day (hmm, he wouldn't be including Jack in that, would he?). Bruce also does quite a fine Nicholson impersonation. Overall, both films are worth seeing. I love the look of both, with beautiful saturated colors -- they don't make film stocks like that anymore. The films are pristine, too, with little evidence of scratches and whatnot as so often you get when older movies are transferred to DVD. "Psycho Out" is extremely funny. There's a wonderful love scene that looks like one of those old black light posters brought to life. Lots of bad acid trips. And a gay couple is presented very matter-of-factly, like, hey, this is set in San Francisco, no big deal. I never even realized that the two characters were a gay couple when I first saw the film years ago on television. The things you learn from DVD viewing! Anyways, this is a must-have DVD, a real bargain, and a potential learning experience for film students. Get it! It's a trip!

5.0 out of 5 stars GOD IS ALIVE AND WELL IN A SUGAR CUBE October 25, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD one of the famous lines you will hear and see in this great Psychedelic Trip of 1968. Directed by Richard Rush, and with a fabulous cast. I had not really heard of many of the actors, then did some investigating on my own. Of course we know what happened to Jack Nicholson; Adam Roarke (plays Ben) died in 1996. What a handsome and good actor he was!!! Also Susan Strasberg (also passed on in 1999) adorable and wonderful! She was the hottest thing going at this time in 1968, and Richard Rush was happy to have her play Jenny Davis, the young deaf runaway looking for her brother (played by Bruce Dern). I had not heard of Max Julien before, he's great, and actually the "baby of the group" (born in 1945 while the others born around 1937, 1938.) So he was 23 when he made the film. Dean Stockwell is terrific as "DAVE", the guy who believes that "all the games gotta go, or else it's just a plastic hassle"!!! I just love his manner of speaking ("Games again, Stoney?") and his great hairstyle with the headband. He's very 1968~~ and such beautiful eyes/lashes on him!!! Also Henry Jaglom, who plays the artist Warren, and goes on a bad trip and his buddies go and rescue him. Look for a group called "THE SEEDS", & of course, the beloved STRAWBERRY ALARM CLOCK. One of the best scenes in this film is called THE BEADS OF INNOCENCE, the music and the "critical focus" of the camera, as Richard Rush puts it in his commentary. Very nice film! sorry they edited it! I noticed some stuff cut short, but thought oh well. Would like to see the longer version of this movie. Either that, or Please Richard Rush, put this out on it's own!!! And add the cut scenes and stuff you may have in the film can at home! Five Star Movie! I watch it over and over. So, Tune In, And Trip Out, to Psych Out!

Psych out is a period piece. It starred a young Jack Nicholson even before he did The Easy Rider. It captures the atmosphere of the sixties quite well.

Very cool item. Twin features from the Psychedelic Sixties with Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson & Bruce Dern. Sorta like Easy Rider lite.
