Altered states is a very well-acted, cleverly written, and conceptually ambitious Sci-fi thriller that, like so many other praise-worthy titles, has been almost completey forgotten today, 30 years after the making.

Harvard scientist Eddie Jessup's (William Hurt) mind-altering experiments on himself, involving a hallucinatory drug and an isolation chamber, get out of control when his handiwork shuttles him back and forth on the evolutionary spectrum -- from human to ape-man. Equal parts sci-fi actioner, 1960s psychedelic trip and farce, the film was based on a Paddy Chayefsky novel and received Oscar nominations for music and sound. Blair Brown co-stars.

"9.7. Tieteen ja perimmäisten kysymysten selvittelyn nimissä lienee sallittua vähän laajennella tajuntaa. Kelluntatankista saa lisäpotkua. Kutkuttavaa sekoilua, vaikka Alien-lainailua ynnä muuta täytettä löytyy."
