The Acid House: While tripping on acid, Coco Bryce is struck by lightning, which makes him switch bodies with a newborn baby.

Combining a vicious sense of humor with hard-talking drama, the film reaches into the hearts and minds of the chemical generation, casting a dark and unholy light into the hidden corners of the human psyche.
Directed by Paul McGuigan, the film dramatises three stories from the book: 1- The Granton Star Cause, 2- A Soft Touch & 3- The Acid House.

Grotesque, filthy fun
I don’t give a rat’s a$$ whether the social commentary is accurate or not or what this film’s “artistic sensibilities” are supposed to be. This movie is a riot. It’s romp through the ugliest, most politically incorrect depths of everyone’s subconscious. This film needs to be watched during a particularly bad hangover, wearing only underpants with holes in them, while eating cold pizza from the night before and sucking on your first hair-of-the-dog beer.

The second segment is the best one, and also the most realistic one. A pathetic, hopeless man living a grim, hopeless life has his become accustomed to his misery, until a neighbor from hell makes his existence even more intolerable than before. This segment is definitely an allegory of every working class life.

If you have a soul darker than the very fabric of the universe then you will find this film hilarious.
The Acid House was unfairly judged as an inferior Trainspotting imitation upon its release. It’s completely inaccurate as director Paul McGuigan was offered the job before that movie was even released and deliberately held-off on watching so as not to be influenced by Danny Boyle’s overrated drug-fest. The Acid House is actually a very colorful, sporadically atmospheric, and so totally over-the-top movie experience that it makes Trainspotting look pedestrian.

Adapted by Irvine Welsh himself from his own outrageous short story collection the film features three 35-minute stories of depravity, revenge, existentialism, and nihilism. Dark matter indeed, especially for a comedy, but there’s literally not one minute without a moment of humor.

The first story features Robert Anthony Coyle, more commonly known as Boab, a fat, lazy, unambitious loser still living at home with his parents at the age of 23. In the space of a few hours he loses his place on his football team (the pretentious Granton Star), his friends, his girl, his job, and is kicked out of home. Feeling sorry for himself over a pint of lager in a scummy pub he meets God, who is none-too-pleased with Boab for simply folding with the cards he has been dealt in life instead of playing the game. He punishes Boab by turning him into a fly. Because God is evil.

The second story is about the enduring romance of Jonny and Catriona, a spineless door-mat of a man and his utterly disgusting, horrifically common wife. They have a baby, but the odds are very high that it’s not even his, and live in a squalid flat in the now-demolished tenement rows of Niddrie in Edinburgh. Life is miserable enough until Larry, a wacky, aggressive, hedonistic playboy moves in upstairs. Within moments he’s taken a shine to Catriona and wastes no time taking over Jonny’s life, who just lets it happen. Larry is one of the funniest, most realistic, characters I’ve ever seen in any movie and Gary McCormack plays him to absolute perfection. His impromptu musical number as he sings ‘Hot Love’ by T-Rex and Marc Bolan is just plain brilliant.

The third and final story features Colin ‘Coco’ Bryce, a Hibs casual who takes an acid tab and has a very, very bad trip, hallucinating his tyrannical father before being actually struck by lightning. When he comes to he is in the body of a newborn child to a middle class couple (played by Martin Clunes and Gemma Redgrave). The baby is in Coco’s body, and Coco’s gorgeous girlfriend Kirsty is taking full advantage of the situation by recreating him as her perfect man.

It’s all very funny, highly surreal stuff. And despite the metamorphosis, body-swapping, magic, and a truly repugnant production design I can’t help but find it an accurate depiction of Scottish life. Spend five minutes in a deprived area of this country (and believe me there is a lot of deprivation) and you’ll encounter half of the cast of this film.

One of my favorite movies, and I am virtually word-perfect. There are many other stories in Welsh’s collection that can be made into short movies. I wonder if we’ll ever get a sequel.
