Movies about meth are not strictly morose affairs, proven by some of the movies on this meth movies list. Depictions of meth addiction in film have been cropping up more and more lately. Some deal with them matter-of-factly and without embellishment, while others are incredibly over wrought and straight out of a back to school special.What are the best movies about methamphetamine? What are some of the most memorable movie tweakers? Here are the top seven most insane tweekers in film history. They're all pushed beyond reason thanks to meth and uppers. Unlike stoners in film, they're is nothing lovable about these guys.
Bobby - Salton Sea
Bobby is a drug dealer that samples his own stash a little too often. He's all set to kill the bugs that crawl out of his skin and has a harpoon gun handy for those unexpected guests, the plastic men. The scene to the left is what every DARE officer that ever visited your elementary school warned you would happen if you did drugs.
Sean - SLC Punk
Sean is a drug dealer in early '80s Salt Lake City. He's mostly an acid guy, but he's sampled enough that I'm sure Meth is on the menu. Some of the most memorable scenes of the movie are when Sean gets sprayed with water while 100 hits of acid are in his pocket, no bueno. Later in the film, Sean is exhibiting tried and true tweeker behavior in his approach to getting a job. The job interview (so to speak) is to the left.
Agnes White - Bug
Agnes White is a woman who sinks into Meth and alcohol abuse after her son goes missing. The movie Bug is all about her destructive relationship with a lover that takes her further and further into the world of drug use, paranoia, and hysterics. The trailer to the left shows a horror movie about invisible insects that can kill you, umm the marketing team royally f**ked up. It's actually a taught thriller about mental illness and drug abuse. No actual invisible insects.
Chev Chelios - Crank
With a name like Crank, you just know someone in the movie is going to be a tweeker. Little did yoiu know it would be our hero, and with good reason. Chev has been poisoned and must keep his adrenaline level up or he'll die. Of the myriad of things Chev takes to make sure this happens, he imbibes quite a bit of the movies namesake, Crank, the street name for Meth. Here's a scene of Jason Statham as Chelios just going ape s**t crazy.
