Perfect for any blazin’ occasion, this landmark propaganda gigglefest is back in a new 2K presentation also featuring vintage trailers, commercials, and ephemera from the AGFA vaults!
REEFER MADNESS is one of the first unintentional cinematic gutbusters, a proto-noir melodrama so preposterous it’s like a transmission from Mars. Originally an Afterschool Special for the tent revival set, a modern REEFER viewing is a hilarious romp through the American establishment’s bottomless paranoia — proving how far we’ve come, and how far we’ve yet to go.
For eighty years since its creation, this seminal cult classic has captured the imaginations of stoners, curiosity seekers and movie maniacs. Come join the party — vive le reefer!
USA, 1936, 76 minutes, Rated PG, Directed by Louis J. Gasnier
