Two air-headed friends, the tall one (Crippler Criss) and the short one (Master W) go onto a camping trip into a forest - mainly to get wasted somewhere other than at home. however, once at their camping site, they get into a stupid rowe about nothing, and rather by accident, the tall one kills the short one. His first reaction is to immediately bury his friend and to destroy all the evidence to not get into trouble - but then he meets a dwarf (Master W again) who tells him about some magic mushrooms that just might bring his friend back to life.

So the tall one sets out to go on a mission to find the mushrooms, and first stop is a hippie (Master W again) whom he has to torture the source of the mushrooms out of, then on the way to the mushroom dealer, a hermit living in the far end of the forest, the tall one hooks up with a psychotic and delusional soldier who believes himself part of a battalion at war - though he only imagines both his comrades and the enemy. Before long, the tall one and the soldier get into such a fight that the soldier decides to execute the tall one - wehn eh himself is shot by the non-existant enemy.

Finally, the tall one makes it to the hermit's (wouldn't you know it, Master W again) place, but the hermit turns out to be a cannibal more interested in fresh meat than anything else - and he wants the tall one's right arm in exchange for the location of the mushrooms. The tall one agrees but tricks the hermit into losing his own arm instead.

On the way to the mushrooms, the tall one meets the spirit of his dead friend, who brutally attacks and seriously injures him, and the head mushroom - which rapes him ... but ultimately, he makes it back to his friend's makeshift grave with the mushrooms. Fed the mushrooms though, the short one doesn't come back the way he used to be but as a carnivorous zombie, and his first victim is ...

Always make sure of DVD-compatibility !!!

Quite obviously made on a shoestring by a skeleton crew (including a cast of two, who also act as directors, producers and whatnot), this film nevertheless has quite a polished look to it, inasmuch as it looks and feels like a real film - much more so than most other no budget amateur productions in fact. And while Secret of the Magic Mushrooms might be no Citizen Kane (and never tries to be), it's pretty much the perfect party movie, as it's full of very crazy scenes, blood and guts, dwarves and rapist mushrooms. And while the movie wastes a bit too much time (about 20 minutes) with its setup that tells the audience little other than the fact the protagonists are airheads who love to get wasted, once the main narrative - the tall one's oddissey - sets in, the film gets more hilarious by the minute, and Werner Timm aka Master W seems to get better and funnier with each role he's playing while Christian Markhoff aka Crippler Criss's really grows on you.

True, it helps to watch this film with a couple of beers, but it looks as if it was made with exactly that in mind.
