"Part social commentary, part erotic Lynchian feast: Psychotropical asks timely questions about the state of the state in tightly knit and highly palatable package. Writer/director Liz Tabish’s rich and vibrant style of storytelling makes for one delicious fever dream of a film. She’s one to watch."
"Intoxicatingly erotic, mixed with intense mystery."
Psychotropical is a short film following Charlie (Penelope Costopoulos) after she takes an off-the-market psychotropic drug given to her by her rich, older boyfriend Howard (Steve Brudniak). When he leaves town on business she invites the humanitarian, socially conscious Nate (Eric Schnider) over to continue their secret affair. After the drugs kick in, Charlie and Nate are transported in their minds to a strange tropical paradise with sinister vibes and they realize that they aren't ever truly alone.

"Psychotropical is a seductive and darkly alluring trip into a narcotic enhanced rabbit hole. The imagery associated with the trip to this true plane of existence is gripping and haunting. The performances from Penelope Costopoulos, Eric C. Schneider, and Steve Brudniak are top-notch and substantially add to the mysterious feel of the short."
