Psychedelic film

Psychedelic film is a film genre characterized by the influence of psychedelia and the experience of psychedelic drugs. Psychedelic films typically contain visual distortion and experimental narratives, often involving hallucinations and emphasising psychedelic imagery. They might reference drugs directly, or merely present a distorted reality resembling the effects of psychedelic drugs. Their experimental narratives often purposefully try to distort the viewers understanding of reality or normality.[1][2]
