NSFW Meth Head Trailer Will Have You Seeking Rehab

methhead_trailer645

What do you get when you fold two decades' worth of young stars — and one very confused-looking Tom Sizemore — into a cautionary tale about the perils of meth use? Try Meth Head, a swear-y, scream-y, violent and thoroughly destabilizing journey to the depths of the worst known addiction this side of Words With Friends.

Your venerable guides: Lukas Haas, Wilson Cruz, Scott Patterson and a laconic Sizemore among others. It's the feel-bad movie of 2012, coming soon to a festival near you! To wit, from a press release:

Kyle Peoples never wanted to be the man he has become in his 30s, an accountant stuck in a dead end job, with a lover who is more successful than he and a family that doesn't get him at all. So when a night of partying leads to a new family of friends and fun, Kyle sees an opportunity for escape from reality. But Kyle's new friendship with Maia and Dusty and the trio's love of crystal meth eventually cost Kyle his job, his companion, his home and his family. Kyle's escape becomes his trap, the party is an illusion and the crystal is slowly killing him, physically and psychologically. When he finally bottoms out and is no longer the young man his father once boasted about with pride, Kyle must choose: life or meth.

Yikes. This thing has me wanting to go to rehab. Festival premieres are forthcoming, according to the release; stay tuned to Movieline for more details as events warrant.

    That made me wanna send the makers to film school and learn how to light a scene and edit a trailer.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this film. By the looks of the trailer it will be a gritty, realistic look at the issue of how addictive Meth is and the affects it has on the user and their family and friends. Hope it does well.
