Dir: Charles Band (Evil Bong/Prehysteria!/Demonic Toys v.s. Dollman)
IMDB Rating: 4.3 out of 10
Continuing with my theme of awful films this month it just so happens that every film I have tackled this month is part of a series. So since I already reviewed Evil Bong for 420 I figure I may as well finish the job and get to it's sequel. I hear that there is now a third installment to the series which does not surprise me since Full Moon is notorious for beating dead horses, However I do not have a copy of the third installment and I am not sure my devotion is strong enough for me to track down the final film for a review, I guess only time will tell. Well I have already summed up my opinions on Pot inspired "Art" and thers no need to go over it again so let's get straight to this flick.
Overall: 2.5 out of 10
Dir: Charles Band (Gingerdead Man/Prehysteria!/Demonic Toys v.s. Dollman/Evil Bong 2/Puppet Masters:The Legacy)
IMDB Rating: 3.8 out of 10
Our film opens up with the typical shitty ska song as the soundtrack and we meet stereotypical nerd Alistair as he is answering an add for a dorm room. Upon entry we meet his future roomies three more standard genre film tropes as the three bunk mates are of course huge stoners. There is Larnell Standard stoner character that only thinks of weed and things related to getting high, Bret the jock and Bochman the standard "Spicolli" character surfer burnout. Alistair takes the room and the wacky hi-jinx ensue. Shortly after moving in Larnell finally saves up enough money for this special bong he spotted in an add in High Times. The bong is supposedly haunted and promises super heavy highs , Looking for the ultimate buzz the piece is ordered and a few days pass before it arrives. Immediately the guys pack the bong and give the special bong a spin, Not noticing anything special about the old beaten utility the guys feel they have perhaps been ripped off by the seller.However later that night while all the guys crash, Bochman hears the bong talk to him before it appears to suck his soul into the chamber of the bong. Once inside he appears to be trapped in a sweet strip club but things quickly take a turn for the worse as one of the strippers seduces him then shows her unique bikini top with skull boobs. While the two get a bit closer Bochman gets a deadly love bite that kills him. The following morning the other guys notice that Bochman has been out for a long time before they realize he is not breathing. Being paranoid about cops busting them the gang decides they cannot alert the authorities and debate on what to do with the body. Then at the most inopportune time Larnell's grandfather arrives to check in on the guys. The stoners spring into action and hide Bochman's body under some blankets while the old man just runs the deadbeats down before introducing his new wife in what is set up to be a big punchline but really falls flat on all counts. After the coast is clear , the guys decide to hide their buddy's body in the buildings basement because some girls are coming over later and they will deal with it in the morning.
Overall: 3.5 out of 10
