Incredibly 80s in the best way. This movie said don't do drugs but especially don't do weird blue alien drugs.

What a wonderfully bizarre take on addiction. Pure 80s from the effects to the soundtrack, and a fun ride.

A great metaphor for addiction though the ending is weird as fuck.

Everything from the lead actor's performance to the score to gory practical FX to the late-80s NYC location filming is on point and I just really enjoyed this a lot.
