Movie Info

That deadly demon weed, marijuana, is the subject of this campy exploitation film from the mid-'30s. It is set in a small town and follows the exploits of a group of decadent teen-aged potheads who go one toke over the line and start causing serious trouble. To expose their hedonistic ways, an investigative journalist masquerades as a fountaineer and befriends one particularly troubled young girl and also helps her escape the horrors of her terrifying addiction.

Audience Reviews for Assassin of Youth

Assassin Of Youth is a ridiculous film, but it has enough campy moments and cheesy acting to keep it lively and fun. Unlike films such as Marihuana and Reefer Madness, this one is more mild with its subject matter and not nearly as over the top, making it less fun to watch. Still, I think it's a fun, underrated B-movie that serves as a fascinating look into propaganda films of yesteryear and how people viewed such subject matter back in the day. If you like B-movies, you might have fun with this one.

I liked this movie a lot better than Reefer Madness, which is a similar film, but it still isn't a great movie.

Pretty ridiculous B-picture about the effects of marijuana, but it was still mildly entertaining and had an easy to follow story for something so cheaply made.
