A drug reveals an alien world.

It has undertones which could make it very disturbing, however it is half-tainted by and half-infused with comedy. With a unique universe and being extremely watchable, this is definitely memorable and enjoyable.

I've heard it described as Evil Dead II - (1987 movie) meets Naked Lunch - (1991 movie). I think it also has a bit of the spirit of They Live - (1988 movie). If you know and liked those films, you'll like this one.

A must-watch.

New technology allows a vehicle to pass through solid matter, but something else is brought through.

This is a must-watch movie, not for its story and plot as-such, but for its feel. It has ideas which really stick. I think Buckaroo Banzai might be particularly cool for young boys.
