Most of us love movies, but something about them just hits different when you’re smoking. But what doesn’t hit different is scrolling through every streaming service until the sun comes up. You need a tried and true list of movies to watch while you’re high. This way, there’s no indecisiveness involved, no going back to the same-old, same-olds (though they do have their charm), and no endless scrolling.

If you Google “movies to watch while you’re high,” tons of lists come up, and most include the same group of movies. You’ll find Willy Wonka, Pineapple Express, Dazed and Confused, and more of the same along those lines. Those are excellent movies to watch while you’re smoking, but we’re here to switch things up. Get ready to dive into 15 movies to watch while you’re high that you probably haven’t considered before.

Whether you’re going all out and hosting a stoner movie night or settling in for a solo cinephile experience, these are some movies you won’t regret watching with a joint (or your cannabis form of choice) in hand.

1.  M3GAN (2022)

M3GAN makes Chucky look like child’s play (see what we did there?). This movie is about a young girl, Katie, who loses her parents and moves in with her aunt, who happens to be an AI toy engineer. That’s where M3GAN comes in, who becomes Katie’s only friend. What began as an innocent bond turns into possessiveness on another level.

It’s branded as a horror movie. But, while stoned, you’ll probably get some crazy good laughs out of it. Especially during the hallway chase scene… you’ll know it when you see it.

2. Trolls (2016)

We’re sticking with the theme of kids’ toys brought into the 21st century, but Trolls has a much kinder vibe than M3GAN. This movie is awesome to watch while you’re high because of the vibrant colors in literally every single shot.

And it’s more than just the colors, it also has songs that will make you want to get up and dance. You remember Can’t Stop the Feeling, right? Well, there’s more where that came from in the movie.

3.  Suspiria (2018)

Okay, we’re majorly switching gears with Suspiria. This movie is a remake of the 1977 version but, in our opinion, this one is better to watch while you’re high. The plot has its fair share of twists and turns (if you can’t keep up while your head is in the clouds, don’t worry, you’ll still get the gist), but the final scene will absolutely blow your stoner mind.

This isn’t the film you choose if you’re trying for a lighthearted night, but we promise it’ll stick with you.

4. Annihilation (2018)

Annihilation is a movie you might not understand if you’re sober, but it might be easier to understand when you’re stoned.

It’s about a group of scientists that head into a separate, expanding dimension in an attempt to figure out what’s at the heart of it. It sounds much simpler in that sentence than it actually is, and you’ll spend quite a while at the end thinking about what the heck you just watched. If you understand it fully, reach out and let us in on the secrets.

5. A Beautiful Planet (2016)

Is there anything better than amazing visuals after smoking a joint? Probably not, except when those visuals are from a place that you call home.

A Beautiful Planet is a documentary, but even if docs aren’t for you, you won’t be bored. It’s got stunning views of space, spectacular scenery, and wide shots that will take your breath away. And it goes pretty quick with a runtime of only about 45 minutes. A major plus: it’s narrated by Jennifer Lawrence!

6. Jurassic Park (1993)

There might not be any film more classic than Jurassic Park, but have you ever watched it while high out of your mind? If you do your best not to get spooked by that freakishly real looking T-rex, you’ll have an awesome time. I don’t think we need to go over the plot of this one, since most everyone knows it.

Even though you’ve probably already seen the movie, the Jurassic Park trailer is worth a watch.

7. Tusk (2014)

We’re getting real weird with Tusk.

The plot is pretty much unexplainable, and if we did explain it, you might not believe us. It’s almost better to go in knowing nothing, but if you do that while you’re high, you might regret your entire life.

So, the quick rundown is that a podcaster heads to a mysterious author’s house to interview him, but finds out that this author has a very strange obsession with walruses. You’ll have to find out for yourself where it goes from there. Once it’s over, you might need to hit the bong again.

8. The Voices (2014)

We love horror comedy when we’re high. For some reason, it really seems to hit our stoner funny bone, and we think The Voices will do the same for you.

This one’s about a guy who can hear the voices of his pets (a cat and a dog), but instead of their personalities being cute and cuddly, they’re evil, and they convince him to turn evil, too. It sounds weird, and it is weird, but it’s a fun ride.

9. Splice (2009)

In this sci-fi thriller, two scientists want to ‘splice’ together the DNA of a number of different animals in order to create a brand-new hybrid, and they end up creating something that gets out of hand quickly. Are we surprised? Probably not. But that doesn’t make Splice any less fun, or any less interesting.

We will say, some parts of this are a bit disturbing, but in the ‘I can’t look away’ kind of way. So, it made it onto the list.

10. Coraline (2009)

While Coraline is a movie that’s technically meant for kids, it’s been known to freak out some adults. But when you’re not being spooked by the somewhat dark plot, you can enjoy being high as a kite and watching the super cool stop motion animation come to life.

Coraline might be one of the best stop motion films out there, and you’ll spend quite some time marveling over how the filmmakers perfected every tiny movement. It’ll blow your mind.

The trailer is The Coraline trailer is also a fun watch.

11. Drag Me to Hell (2009)

Drag Me to Hell is one of the leaders in the wildly outrageous horror comedy-but-not-comedy genre. This one that you’ll just have to see to believe, and you’re going to die laughing during some parts (namely the goat…just wait) after smoking a little – or a lot.

This one of those movies that you either already love or you’ve never heard of, and you definitely have to check it out when you smoke.

12. The Happening (2008)

The Happening is an M. Night Shyamalan film that takes itself way too seriously, which means it’s pretty much the funniest thing in the world — especially when you’re high.

This movie is about plants getting their revenge on humankind by releasing a chemical that makes people want to do drastic things. What drastic things they do, you’ll just have to find out for yourself.

13. Premonition (2007)

Alright, if you’re in the mood for a mind-bending adventure that will make you question everything, you absolutely need to check out Premonition.

It’s about a young woman whose husband gets in a fatal accident, only for her to wake up the next morning and find that he’s alive and well. But the morning after that, he’s dead again. You’ll be left in a state of intrigued confusion with this one.

14. Men (2022)

This movie is weird beyond weird, so only watch it if you’re ready to be disgusted, mindblown, a little confused, and a lot creeped out.

Men is about a woman who takes a vacation on the English countryside after a personal tragedy, only to run into strange characters that all look eerily similar. The last twenty minutes or so of this movie might be some of the weirdest pieces of film we’ve ever watched in our lives, high or sober. You shouldn’t miss this, even if you can only handle it once!

15. The Master of Disguise (2002)

The Master of Disguise is downright hilarious and will have you on the floor with laughter by the end of the movie. It’s got impressions, stupid plotlines, silly voices, and characters that bring it all together.

It’s about a less-than-impressive son who learns of his family trade (being a master of disguise) and uses it to save his “mama and papa” and fight a criminal mastermind. It’s pretty much as goofy as it sounds.

Get Your Snacks, Get Your Weed, and Get Ready

Which one of these movies are you going to watch first? Something weird? Scary? Both? Whatever you choose, we hope you enjoy it, because the only thing better than some good weed is a good movie – and combining the two is one of the best things in life.

Stop by Doja and stock up or, if you’re located in Portage, put in an order for delivery! Once you’ve got your snacks and your stash, all that’s left for you to do is enjoy your movie.
