Altered States (1980)

R 12/25/1980 (US) HorrorScience FictionThriller 1h 42m

A dream is the key that unlocks the mysteries of the waking world.


A research scientist explores the boundaries and frontiers of consciousness. Using sensory deprivation and hallucinogenic mixtures from native American shamans, he explores these altered states of consciousness and finds that memory, time, and perhaps reality itself are states of mind.
