ALTERED STATES (1980)

Typical Ken Russell mind fuck about a Harvard scientist, William Hurt in his film debut, and the “changes” he experiences after taking hallucinatory drugs while meditating in an isolation chamber. Great late night flick for the counter culture crowd is basically an updating of Jack Arnold’s MONSTER ON THE CAMPUS (1958), complete with state of the art special effects (for that time at least) to enhance the mind blowing. Drew Barrymore also makes her screen debut.
