Shrooms keeps you guessing throughout: is what we're witnessing real, or simply one person’s perception of reality?
You see, all of the film’s main characters have ingested mushrooms in order to experience a drug-like high, and during the 'trips', their minds play tricks on them (one character even receives a warning from a talking cow). There are some legitimately frightening moments to be found in Shrooms, most of which involve a ghostly monk who'll send shivers up your spine. The ending, unfortunately, is a let-down, and more formulaic than I was hoping for, but it doesn’t detract from the rest of the film.
Pardon the obvious pun: Shrooms is definitely worth the trip.
