3 couples go to Ireland woods to collect magic mushrooms and trip out. On their way they meet some strange inhabitants of the woods and it doesn't take long until a creepy story is being told at the campfire which might be more than just a story. So strange things happen, people start disappearing, silhouettes move through the woods and the creepy story starts to melt into reality. The horror kicks in along with the effect of the mushrooms.Written by
The location of the old abandoned building is actually an old closed down hospital just outside Killeshandra County Cavan. See more »
The constant bird sounds in the background throughout the film frequently include the very obvious Red-Winged Blackbird which is not found in Europe, never mind Ireland, where the film is set. See more »

Someone's got it bad.
No, I don't. It was just a... summer thing.
That's why you're travelling 5000 miles to see him.
It's not to see him. I'm here just like the rest of you, you know. See Ireland. Do shrooms.
Tara, I've known you all my life and I've never even see you take an aspirin.

says the "Irish" boy with the remarkably uncanny east London accent, whilst in observation of the local Irish folk picking up roadkill for dinner...er racist much? anyways despite the shockingly unauthentic accents, (well just the Irish ones that is), and the massive (and that is an understatement) clichés, all thrown at me full force within the first EIGHT MINUTES (ladies and gentlemen we have a winner), I proceeded no further in my investigation of this 'film' (and it was an investigation...I didn't fathom that a film by the name of "shrooms" would be in any way a thought provoking or groundbreaking affair).
Usually a movie like this would be seen out of sheer entertainment in a 'so bad its good' vein of things.
this was actually so bad...that it was switched off (precisely eight minutes later). The blonde virgin, stoner king of 'shrooms', and jock stereotypes made me yawn with despair. As for the Irish boy (clearly originally from Romford), don't even get me started.
