OUR SHORT FILM REVIEW:

Sam Fox’s Bad Acid is a neon-dosed short that understands just how insane this trip is going to be from the very beginning. Its energetic 80s style workout routines make for a delightful yet outlandish experience that absorbs you into the poisonous undertaking our lead is “suffering” through. 

 

The set and production design are wonderfully unique and provide a brightly framed nostalgia piece that ultimately feels all the more odd the more you dive in. With a minimum amount of dialogue, Bad Acid makes up for it with its direction and over-the-top acting to make the watch all the more memorable. 

 

Bad Acid is a bizarre, drug-induced trip that takes a phenomenal turn into the world of the odd and unknown. Its brightly neon exterior and relentless energy makes this eerie workout one for the books; this is a must see for anyone looking for a quick escape from reality.
