Something tepid this way comes
I'd say this was more offbeat than outright weird. This one guy is involved in a horrific electricity accident, which burns his face badly, and a witch says she'll fix his face in exchange for his (physical) love. Oh, and the guy now has ESP, so naturally the local cops lean on him to help solve a slew of murders. And, to help him to be super effective, they give him LSD to help enhance the ESP. It's all mildly interesting, badly acted, and relatively benign. There's blood (it's Herschell Gordon Lewis, and that's kind of his wheelhouse), but to be frank it looks a heck of a lot like Hunt's ketchup. Not Heinz; the more watery Hunt's. Anyway, this isn't a movie anyone should rush out and see, even if they can find it. And remember, kids: electrocution gives you mind powers, and tripping on LSD will help you see all kinds of cool things. Something Weird is definitely a product of its times.
