Saturday, March 5 by Houlihan Macaco

The best movies to watch while high are typically disturbingly funny or just plain disturbing. Some are just good eye candy. The following movies are great to watch while high. They are sure to seep into your psyche and really give you something to bug out to. 

  1. "Fantasia" – This Disney classic may be funny at times. However, the animated movie is great to watch while high because of its psychedelic "eye candy" qualities. There are dancing broomsticks, surreal sorcery scenes and plenty of stimulating visual delights set to classical music. 
  2. "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" – Wonka's facility is not only a chocolate factory, but a psychedelic adventure from hell. Charlie wins a free tour of the chocolate factory and has many adventures therein. The Oompa Loompas, or whatever they are, alone are enough to make this one of the best films to watch while high.
  3. "Alice in Wonderland" – Hookah smoking caterpillars, smiling purple cats, mad tea parties and psychotic queens make this Disney rendition of Lewis Carol's classic novel a must see. If you're not under the influence during this one, you will be. It's that good. 
  4. "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" – Any movie starring Pee Wee is perfect for watching while high. After a bowl of Mr. T cereal, a boy brings his most prized bike into town. Then, it gets stolen. A phony psychic tells Pee Wee that his bike is in the basement of the Alamo, and the adventure begins. Join Pee Wee on his journey to recover his bike. 
  5. "Circuitry Man" – This is a futuristic tale in a time when humans go underground to escape pollution. The latest designer drug is a chip that is implanted into the brain. "Circuitry Man" is a tale of underground cities, psychotic dealers and robotic gigolos. 
  6. "Cheech and Chong's Next Movie" – Pee Wee Herman is prominent in this classic stoner film, so it must be good. Stoner extraordinaires Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong embark on another adventure involving lots of ganja, women and flashy cars. 
  7. "Waking Life" – This partially animated film is full of deep philosophical discussions of topics such as determining the difference between the dream world and the waking world and plenty of unanswerable existential questions. If you're high and you're having an existential crisis, "Waking Life" will disturb you even more. 
  8. "Angel's Egg" – Coelacanth ghosts and statues of humans come to life in this very bizarre post-apocalyptic film. A girl is in charge of guarding a mysterious egg while statues hunt fish ghosts in a dead city. Someone break's the girl's egg, then she drowns. 
  9. "Eraserhead"David Lynch stars in this 1976 tale of Henry, who has a mutant child with his girlfriend, Mary X. The child screams so much that Mary leaves Henry with the child, and Henry goes insane. The movie is set in a twisted world featuring The Lady in the Radiator, who sings about the kingdom of heaven, and machines gone berserk. 
  10. "Naked Lunch" – William S. Burroughs wrote the novel of the same name while smacked up on heroin in a New York City hotel room. The film begins with an exterminator who discovers hallucinogenic properties in his pest control chemicals. Have you ever seen a beetle killing another beetle for being a government agent? The unimaginably insane characters and nonlinear plot make this Cronenberg classic one of the best movies to watch while high.
