Run Time: 
Suburban reality unravels when a group of teens experiment with a new drug that takes its users to a terrifying new world. Charlie (Aaron Refvem, Sons of Anarchy) dreams of escaping his boring life, and in the darkest reaches of the internet he’s found his answer: Black Sugar. Promising a trip they’ll never forget, Charlie and his rebellious friends swallow the candy-colored hallucinogen, much to the dismay of Charlie’s tag-along neighbor, Adam (Jake Kellar). When Black Sugar takes hold, the teens find themselves thrust into a living nightmare, infested with terrifying creatures that serve a horrific purpose. With Adam stuck in the real world, it becomes a race against time to save his friend from Black Sugar.
