Watching movies on mushrooms is a very specific experience. It alters the reality not only of the world you are existing in but also of the world the movie is presenting to you. This can be an amazing experience or a terrifying one. No matter what, it will certainly be memorable. The movies on this list are the absolute best films to watch while on 'shrooms, voted on by people who would know. As you can see, this is a pretty different list than the best stoner movies.

The mushroom high is an extremely visual and spiritual one, so these movies focus on that. For fun, bright colors, intense editing, and amazing sound design, these movies are the perfect pairing for a mushroom high. Some might also offer your mushroom addled self a spiritual awakening, thanks to their introspective plots and reality altering concepts.

So next time you're tripping on mushrooms and looking for the a good movie to watch, check out this list, and be sure to cast your votes for the movies you think are fun to watch on mushrooms. And if your psychedelic tastes run more to movies to watch on LSD or DMT, seems safe to think that this would be a pretty good proxy list to get recommendations for the best movies to watch on acid as well as psilocybin.
