Horror icon Vincent Price getting wigged out on heavy narcotics was once a thing--at least in a few of his movies--and we have two of them here in our second episode of Old Movies for Young Stoners. First, there's Dragonwyck--a haunting gothic romance from 1946 where Price hides in an attic and tokes opium to escape from the sounds of a ghostly harpsichord that plays in his family estate. Then we have The Tingler (1959), the magnum opus from gimmick-king William Castle where Price mainlines LSD as part of his experiments into the nature of fear that also involve a worm-like creature that can crush your spine. After discussion of each movie, our green bud experts recommend what kind of cannabis to vape, smoke or otherwise consume while you watch them.
Dragonwyck is streaming on Criterion Channel and The Tingler is available on Tubi, Pluto and Crackle. The cannabis is at your local dispensary in participating states.
