As perhaps befits a film so concerned with being 'under the influence', Breathnach's hallucinogen-driven giallo turns its very derivativeness into a virtue, confounding viewers with a gleeful overdose of cinematic references.

Shrooms may seem great while you're under its spell, but once the drugs wear off and you wake up, it fades pretty quickly ... Still, it's not a bad trip while it lasts.

Besides a few swell looking shots, this movie is just garbage.

[A] half-baked effort.

In a film devoid of a single scary moment the only truly frightening thing here is watching any of them try to convey an honest human emotion...

From the distorting lens used randomly to suggest unreality, to the twist ending lifted verbatim from the superior High Tension, it's about as imaginative as a portobello steak with onions.

Some talent and effort went into creating the visuals; too bad the script appears to have sprouted from the same dung pile as the mushrooms.

There are some fleetingly beautiful scenic shots and the odd atmospheric moment, but scissorhands editing destroys any suspense as it attempts to hide a very obvious plot twist; this is as boring as listening to anyone's drug story.

Not just unoriginal, dull and as scary as the adventures of Noddy, Shrooms makes you want to plant a tombstone in the earth and mourn the death of horror.

Mush.

A lo-fi shocker with a set-up so perfunctory, if you root around in your popcorn too long you'll miss it.

Student horror fans may find this worth a giggle, but it's not the nail-biting experience the trailers promise.

Devoid of any real horror highs, it's a bit of a downer.

Every element of Paddy Breathnach's Irish slasher movie is so familiar that it feels like a dog-eared horror anthology found down the back of the sofa.

There are a few effective jump scares but the dodgy acting and an appalling ending marks this out as an interesting first try rather than an indie breakaway hit.

Scary, trippy and disturbing, although let down by that ending.

Fans of the horror genre will appreciate the "leftover" stuff because it's presented in a relatively fresh package, but leftovers they remain...
