Ghetto Freaks/Way Out [DVD]

Two drug-addled dramas from the late '60s and early '70s are paired up in yet another inspired double-feature DVD release from Something Weird Video. Both Ghetto Freaks and Way Out have been transferred to disc in their original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and the audio is mastered in Dolby Digital Mono. The print quality for both films is variable, but better than has been seen from most VHS sources. The dialogue for both films is in English with no multiple language options included. Something Weird has bulked out this package with a collection of trailers for four dope-themed dramas and a vintage educational short called "Narcotics: The Inside Story" (which offers little concrete information about narcotics, as it happens).

Synopsis

Sign of Aquarius
This trippy drama offers a psychedelic slice of hippie life. The story centers on the members of one communal group who are first seen getting arrested for holding a peaceful anti-war demonstration. Following that, they return to their apartment and begin planning their next demonstration. Later the hippies go to a club and passively watch as a determined mother hauls her errant daughter home. Just as the girl leaves, one of the long-hairs hands her a note with their address. That night a hippie chick has a bad trip and sees herself laying a giant egg. Soon the errant girl arrives and she too drops a hit of LSD. The following day, the gang heads off to sell their underground newspaper on the street. That night one of the longhairs and the girl are cornered by a pusher who tries to force the man into becoming a dealer. The hippie refuses and gets the stuffing knocked out of him. A day or so later, the hippies are heading for another demonstration when they find themselves jumped by the pusher's henchmen. During the scuffle, the innocent girl is fatally shot. The demonstrators quietly pick up her corpse and take it down the streets. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Way Out
A hardened drug addict finds true solace and peace, not from narcotics but from letting Christ into his life in this religious drama that was filmed in the grim Puerto Rican slums of the Bronx. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
