The Acid House

The Acid House


A Picture Palace North Production:

The Acid House is an ultra-gritty tale of undiluted Irvine Welsh. Adapted from his famous short stories, and with a screenplay written by the author himself.

"The Acid House makes Trainspotting look like a mild-mannered youth comedy" says Variety. Indeed, the striking portrait of the tougher side of Scottish culture needs to be seen to be believed and was one of the most controversial cinema releases of 1999.

The strong cast includes Ewan Bremner as a speed-crazed madman with a fondness for mind-altering substances, Martin Clunes and Jemma Redgrave as a couple about to have their first child, Kevin McKidd in the part of a disturbingly patient Johnny, and Maurice Roëves as a downbeat God appearing at the local pub.

The film's soundtrack features a who's-who of cool British rock, with tracks from the Verve, Primal Scream, Belle & Sebastian and a new song penned for the movie by Oasis.

The Acid House is directed by Paul McGuigan and produced jointly by Alex Usborne and David Muir as a Picture Palace North and Umbrella Film production, with the backing of Channel 4 and the European Script Fund.
