Altered States is a 1980 American science-fiction horror film directed by Ken Russell based on the novel of the same name by playwright and screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky. The film was adapted from Chayefsky's only novel and is his final screenplay.
Read other reviews regarding the "collective consciousness" theme of Altered States, I prefer to just view the movie as a straightforward reflection of the relation between genetic and physiological regression and consciousness/thought (including memory).
