Three stories with a delusional insanity germ incubated in their gut.
In the first "The Granton Star Cause", Boab Coyle has had a bad day: has been expelled from the football team, his parents have driven him away to fornicate freely perversely, his girlfriend has left him by not knowing how satisfy her sexually, he was arrested and thoroughly beaten in a cell and have finally driven from his job. When it seems that nothing worse could happen, Boab meets God at a bar, who speaks, not without mockery, of his indolence, and also decides to give him a lesson in making a disgusting fly. However, Boab will hold a terrible revenge on those who mistreated him. Sure, until his own mother kills him when he goes in flight.
In the second story, "A Soft Touch" we witness the ease with which people manipulate Johnny, a poor simpleton incapable of imposing its will, even in Catriona, his own wife, who despite being the mother of a child, not hesitate to give free rein to their instincts and fucks with whom she pleases, getting even money on it, as occurs with the harlots. Thus Catriona starts shagging addition to Larry, the upstairs neighbor until he leaves her pregnant and then forget her. Catriona then go to look for Johnny to rebuild their lives together. And of course, he can not but yield.
Finally, the third story, "The Acid House", we see Colin (Coco) Bryce, having been with his girlfriend Kirsty in a bar and having ingested an acid goes out just before a storm and is struck by lightning in the midst of drug-induced effects. Meanwhile, Jenny is about to give birth, and when she undertakes the journey to hospital, along with her husband Rory, is also hit by lightning inside the ambulance, resulting in an exchange of personalities between newborn and Coco himself. A plot that will be committed without a qualm in the grounds of absurdity. Until they both finally are reunited and recover their bodies.
The Acid House
is the first fiction film by Paul McGuigan, and like the celebrated Trainspotting
, is based on texts by Irvine Welsh. However, in this case the result is far from Danny Boyle''s film, because the abuse of outlandish situations (especially in the third story) produces an effect rather weary in the viewer.
