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.

"Reefer Madness" is so outrageously over the top that it's tough to imagine it was taken seriously even in the 1930s.

A true guilty pleasure; laughable today. More fun than educational.

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

The film is so idiotic that it almost demands being seen to confirm how bad it is.

As the evidence mounts before us, it becomes clear that the general purpose of Reefer Madness was not pedantry, but vicarious lasciviousness.

The most famous of all the vintage "message" movies from the 30s and 40s only gets, uh, better with age.

...probably the granddaddy of all so-bad-it's-good cult films. I'm not sure it started a welcome trend.

A laughable and ignorant indictment of marijuana culture. Even the camp appeal isn't worthwhile.
| Original Score: 2/5

Not as funny as it sounds.

This is neither the best nor the worst of this sort of thing -- nor even the most salacious. It may, however, be the silliest.
