Movie Info

This is one of the '30s-era "out-for-your-best-interests" films. This one deals with the dangers associated with smoking marijuana and shows how high-school students, after smoking a little pot, may easily commit rapes and other awful drug-induced activities. In later years, in a more marijuana-enlightened society, this film has become a comedic cult classic.

  • Espers' 1936 film deserves its reputation as one of the most entertainingly bad movies ever made.

  • The original antimarijuana film (1936), offering the true inside story of the devil weed that drives men to savage lusts and women to unspeakable depravities, along with a little bit of dumb fun.

  • One of the most absurdly earnest exercises in paranoia you'll ever have the good fortune to see.

  • This gloriously awful film is highly recommended to lovers of stunningly bad movies.

  • Perhaps the mother of all bad movies, however, the didactic film, unlike later stinkers, takes itself extremely seriously, seeing itself as an important instrument in the campaign against drugs. However, the film's ignorance is the audience's bliss.

  • All the performers either overact laughably or underact to the point of just standing in place and speaking lines in a monotone.
