Pop a Few Magic Mushrooms and Take a One Way Trip. In 3D.

1 Comment

When will young people learn that hunting for magic mushrooms in the middle of absolutely nowhere is never a good idea. Markus Welter’s upcoming Swiss horror flick “One Way Trip” — an adventure into wooded terror that shall be presented in the third dimension — sounds an awful lot like Paddy Breathnach’s 2007 effort “Shrooms”, a film I can’t say that I enjoyed. Here’s hoping “One Way Trip” handles this drug-addled premise in a much better way. Truth be told, they have nowhere to go but up.

Here’s what you get in terms of story:

Eight young people drive to the Swiss Jura region, food and tents in the trunk. It’s autumn and high season for a magic mushroom that grows there – the reason for their trip. After a few problems they arrive at the desired location deep in the woods, the tents are set up, the mushrooms are collected and when it gets dark the party starts. Everything is fine until one of the youths wants to get beer and comes back with a blood-covered and smashed face. They don’t know what happened but need to find help. As they discover that their car has a flat tire and their phones don’t work, they seek shelter in a nearby farmhouse. But that’s just where they were supposed to go. In a nerve-racking countdown one after another gets killed by their dangerous hunters.

“One Way Trip” stars Melanie Winiger, Sabrina Reiter, Herbert Leiser, Martin Loos, Isabelle Barth, Matthias Britschgi, Tanja Raunig, Simon Käser, Harry Lampl, and Aaron Hitz. The two-dimensional trailer lies below.

    Shrooms, yes … we have developed “OWT 3D” since 2006, and neither me nor Bastian Zach, with whom I wrote the script, had heard of Shrooms then. But all I can say – we will be better ;-), and “OWT 3D” will be one bloody hell of a ride …
