70 Years Later, Audiences Are Still Hooked!
For years, Hollywood has extolled the TV watching and excessive Funyun consumption that accompany heavy marijuana smoking as lighthearted fun. But in the 1930's, one film was brave enough to tell it like it is: Reefer Madness. Crime, deceit, murder, casual sex and ragtime piano are all shown as inevitable consequences of that first pull of Reefer. This story is told through the riveting medium of forty-year-old actors portraying high schoolers, interrupted every fifteen minutes for a stern lecture from a hideous, bespectacled man.
As with all things that took place before we were born, it is different, and therefore hilarious. Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of Rifftrax.com and Mystery Science Theater 3000 are on hand to provide an internationally hilarious commentary track to this masterpiece of unintentional comedy.
