Default Altered States 1980

Possibly my favourite Ken Russell film of all - sees William Hurt experimenting with unknown drugs and sensory deprivation tanks. Before long he is experiencing terrifying visions and physical change which appears to be regressing backwards in time to the Pleiocene period and even beyond....
Some of the most incredible visual effects that I have ever seen on film and a simply superb soundtrack. Had the pleasure of seeing this in 70mm with a 6 track magnetic soundtrack in the cinema and while the DVD is good, this film would simply be out of this world on

Wow, 70 MM and 6 track sound????

Yeah, that would be a treat.

Dick Smith did the special FX make-ups.
