I remember seeing this the first time and it made me feel very uneasy. Upon further viewings the story has revealed many layers I missed on first watch. During the 90s I did experiment with limited sensory deprivation (even spent time in a 'Tank'). While I never experienced anything like what was depicted in this movie I did find self-awareness and my most basic instincts and desires were heightened. By today's standards this movie may seem a bit slow and boring. If you choose to see it, look not at the film but more at the implied meanings within.

If you're thinking of watching this....and reading this...watch it! Just one of many excellent Ken Russell films, this is definitely a personal fav.

I REMEmber snesking into the theater my mom was in, she was watching this movie, this was for the adults...while my younger bro and i saw a kids movie in the adjacent theater. when the woman is floating with all the stars or snow or what have u, was right at the moment that i peaked into the adult movie. so now yrs later, i watch it here. it was definately a movie that was way cool back in the days, and i bet the book is great, however, the very last line irritated the hell out of me. its interesting to see the older red head from the tv show Fringe, as a young red headed actress in the movie. it was a good movie if u dont expect modern cgi and all that....the special effects at the time were amazing, its not horror, its sci-fi, but i think at the time, it make have seemed more like horror, judging by the reaction of the characters.

This movie was a big hit in the 1980s. It really freaked out people to the max. Isolation tanks were installed in most of the American spas, and tanning salons across the country. People would drop a tab of LSD, crawl in, and trip their brains out.

Dr. Eddie Jessup is a Harvard physiologist who used to experience religious visions as a teenager and is now studying the phenomenon of hallucinations caused by sensory deprivation in isolation tanks. His inquiries into the nature of consciousness eventually take him to an isolated tribe in Mexico who use a powerful psychedelic mushroom in ancient Toltec religious rituals. When he combines the magic mushrooms and the isolation tank, he finds that the mixture causes him to regress to an earlier evolutionary state.

(O_o) I just can't say enough good things about this classic movie! I'm thinking among it's many totally original ground breaking breakthrough theories for it's day...that this movie must have also helped to inspire the mega popular 80's music video Take On Me, which was sung by a band called Ah Ha. Rating: 10/10

This is one of my favorite sci-fi, mind bending films. The plot does go a bit far, but the idea that is presented behind the plot about continuing energy, evolution, etc. can be much appreciated. These ideas are the foundation of the mind bending. It does take an open mind to appreciate this movie.

There are a lot of neat ideas and interesting themes presented in this movie, but it gets bogged down in its own silliness about 3/4 of the way through. Still, the rest of the movie is very captivating and enjoyable. Easily one of my favorite sci fi/horror movies, and I really want to try a sensory deprivation chamber now!

This movie's a total mindfu*k, probably even better when tripping balls.

I liked the movie at the start of the film. The more I watched, the deeper I became engrossed in the story and found it somewhat believable. Then ending came -- I rolled my eyes and laughed -- I could not believe how it ended so dumb! I guess I was expecting a realistic approach to the ending and not a monstrous flop because the rest of the move was almost believable. I know that the movie is loosely based on Dr. John Lilly's real life experiments from the 1960's - and that is why a plausible ending to the movie should have been scripted. Altered States needs an altered ending. 6/10

I expectd this film to be really impressive, turned out it's pretty much trollop, it just drags on with too much speech and the main character's role is egotastic, and evdently annoying. i really expected this to be psychological and intense - very disappointing.
