There should be a society called The Peanut Butter Solution Viewers Anonymous... for all the innocents who saw this movie in their youth, only to be haunted by it and be told by their friends and loved ones that they are liars and this movie doesn't exist (but Mommy, it is real).
To add insult to injury, I recently found the trailer online and (certain that victory was mine) played it for my so-called friends (who dared to call me a liar...i hope they burn). ONLY to find that the trailer is the most ridiculously sugary bit 'o film accompanied by an organ grinder's stupid muzak (and not the creepy film experience we all know it to be). So now I'm not a liar... I'm just a huge silly chicken. That's okay, though, I'm still in my happy place. B/c this movie is real.
This movie is a typical bizarre, spooky, borderline scary, 70's/80's movie. I don't know what the obsession was of making acid trippy kids movies was back in those days, but this definitely falls in that category. The entrancing plot might be a little frightening or intense for kids UNDER the age of ten. I was right around ten when it came out and I found it creepy yet intriguing, not scary. To kind of gauge it, it's comparable to the darker Harry Potter movies, or the trippy 70's Krofft shows, or as someone else mentioned, Return to Oz (which was considerably darker than the original). I do highly recommend The Peanut Butter Solution, as movies with plots that really stick with you over the years like this one are rarely made these days.
Myself, I thought the plot of the movie was a nightmare i had. I actually thought my 'nightmare' had been a movie that i had recalled, but recounting my nightmare to people they said there was no way that was a kids movie.
Then, I have a friend tell me about this movie, and like many evidentally, It freaked me out to realize it WAS a film, and I hadn't just made it up.
This movie from what i remember is bizarre, to say the least but has made an impression on almost every kid who saw it. Not your normal kids movie.
Oddly enough directed by the guy who made the landmark documentary Waiting for Fidel.
Someone release this!
It is not your ordinary film, has a very twisted yet fascinating plot. If you liked this you will probably also like Return to Oz and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen--two other fantastic films. I could not find the right version Return to Oz on here. It has that girl who played Nancy in The Craft as Dorothy, so you know it's an old film.
