The Peanut Butter Solution

1h 33m Cult, Adventure, Action, Family 1985

The '80s Canadian kid flick that scarred a generation.

THE PEANUT BUTTER SOLUTION may not actually be from another dimension, but it might as well be. Imagine an alternate universe 1985 in which THE GOONIES is about magical winos, cursed hair, and child slavery, and the soundtrack features Celine Dion instead of Cyndi Lauper. While we can’t prove that the French-Canadian producers of this movie aren’t occultists who tapped into some bizarro astral plane, we can thank them for allowing us to glimpse such non-threatening weirdness in the comfort of a movie theater.

The story follows a young boy who sees something so frightening he loses all of his hair. After applying a magical hair growth formula to his head, the hair comes back in a big way. Insanity ensues. With a screenplay co-authored by a Czech surrealist, THE PEANUT BUTTER SOLUTION is a fantasy sure to leave you scratching your peanut-butter-covered head.

“Weirdness abounds in this trippy Canuck kids film that left a helluva impression on me after a single haphazard viewing.” — Anthony Arrigo, Dread Central
