Mushrooms are one of the largest and oldest living organisms on earth. The 2008 documentary movie Know Your Mushrooms! Written and directed by Ron Mann investigates visionaries and maverick scientists, Larry Evans and Gary Lincoff. Partially filmed at the Telluride Mushroom Fest with both archived footage and animation footage, this film takes the audience on a trip of extraordinary perception.
Another film with a resounding darker twist is the 2007 film Shrooms written by Pearse Elliot and directed by Paddy Breathnach. Shrooms leads a group of friends to be stalked and murdered while in the Irish woods looking for psilocybin mushrooms. This movie is listed as comedy, horror and mystery. The way hallucinogenic mushrooms mess with your mind and if you enjoy a scary mystery you will love this film.
