Premonition (1972)

Transvue Pictures
Directed by Alan Rudolph
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

A hippie pothead takes a job as a driver for an archaeologist in Mexico looking for the remains of Indians. They find a skeleton, which causes the professor to crash their truck and the hippie to have visions of some kind of beast. They never speak of it again, until the hippie tries to start a band with some friends, one of whom is taking a class with the old professor. The visions return, and start impacting another member of the fledgling band. Low budget first effort from director Rudolph is a dated, unfocused mess. The monster is unconvincing and never explained, the "visions" probably came from smoking too much pot, the main theme of the film.
