Adapted from Irvine Welsh’s book of short stories, The Acid House is a bleak, disturbing and hilariously dark triptych of urban surrealism and the chemical generation in 90s Scotland.The film marks the feature debut from traditionally documentary based director Paul McGuigan, who has managed to carry the gritty reality characteristic of these films over to the bizarre amphetamine driven world portrayed in Welsh’s stories. Stark, minimalist cinematography works outstandingly to present three separate, extraordinary tales in a raw yet often humorous fashion. The Granton Star Cause tells of a notorious slacker experiencing judgement day in a seedy Scottish pub and subsequently being turned into a fly. A Soft Touch shows the cuckolding of an overly nice guy by a psychotic neighbour, and The Acid House relives one of the worst acid trips ever experienced, involving lightning and a foul mouthed animatronic baby. With a screenplay written by Irvine Welsh, a hip cast (including Ewen Bremner - Trainspotting) and an equally hip soundtrack The Acid House is undoubtedly a trip you will not soon forget.
