In 2004 a movie was made that you never saw. All that is about to change!
The story of Suicide Trip is a strange one. Written by James Hausler at 19 and directed when he was 22, Suicide Trip “is an age-laced perspective rarely seen in cinema. Following three exaggerated archetypes—riffing high school films—it is and was something of an ODD-yssey that never quite found a home. It is a story about a millennial generation growing up in early 2000”.
Now, Beat Pirate Films is rescuing Suicide Trip from obscurity with a re-release and remaster that’s now available On Demand. You can check out the trailer embedded at the top of the article and read the synopsis below.
The three main characters embark on a ridiculous, conflict spattered hallucinogenic journey through high school, parties, and crime. Told from the perspective of each, the story takes you through their eyes and skates the edges of what is real and what is not. Suicide Trip put the Z in CRAY 15 years ago but was never truly released until now. It’s back, remastered, polished, and ready to night train you to WTFsville.
Hausler describes Suicide Trip as existing “somewhere between dream and fantasy.” The film stars Michael Mandell, Christopher M. Clark, and Eco Lopez.
