This is an original Japanese poster printed in 1968 for the first release of Acid Delirium of the Senses. This poster is extremely rare and the artwork is a tribute to the hippy 60`s of magic mushrooms & acid, peace and love.
For the majority of history, drugs were mostly about drug prevention with famous films such as Reefer Madness, Devil`s Harvest, and Cocaine!
But things changed dramatically in the 1960`s with the Western World`s cultural revolution.
Acid Delirium of the Senses, was attempting to capitalize on the new psychedelic craze. It was part pseudo-documentary about the Italian counterculture and drug scene (Dr. Humphry Osmond appears as himself) and part straight up LSD exploitation film. Of course the plot is no less laughable than the earlier anti films that preceded it — some free-living’, free-lovin’ hippies get mixed up with the Mafia.
"Part pseudo-documentary about the Italian counterculture and drug scene, Acid Delirio Dei Sensi is an obscure Italian cult movie directed by Giuseppe Maria Scotese. The plot involves some free-livin’, free-lovin’ hippies who get mixed up with the Mafia. " (DM Movies)
