Hallucination Generation (1966)

Trans America Films
Directed by Edward Mann
My rating: 1.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

Drop-outs from California live on a remote Spanish island, supported by their wealthy parents. They congregate around drug dealer George Montgomery, who has a constant supply of pot, pills and LSD. Newcomer Bill Williams (Danny Stone, both names seem to be a joke) initially refuses to fall in line with their hedonistic lifestyle, but when he falls in love and gets married the couple moves to the big city in search of a job. She works but his writing fails to make any money. He goes back to the island, is dosed with LSD and gets involved with a robbery which leads to murder. One of the earliest "hippie exploitation" films is poorly made, with unnecessary narration and amateur acting. It is in black and white (more like pink in the print I watched) except for the LSD trip which is in color and has Montgomery and friends in weird makeup.
