This is where the wild ones come out to play

Fittingly, this menagerie of Altered States oddities boasts no less than four titles that hinge on uncanny transfigurations. Tempering the series’ more feral fare is a complement of soulful sci-fi offerings that employ Morocco, Hungary, and Czechia as departure points for their thoughtful explorations of speculative realms. Throw some teen angst, playful sacrilege, and righteous wrath into the mix, and it all makes for a delirious cocktail best served up in a dark room with strangers.
