The kind folks over at Full Moon Entertainment sent me a Press Only Preview of their upcoming Evil Bong 3D: The Wrath of Bong! The disc contained the first 22 minutes of the movie, a Roadshow Promo, TV Spot, and the Full Moon Promo Reel 2011.
I'll be honest: I haven't seen the first two Evil Bong releases, so can't comment on them. All I can comment is on the first 22 minutes of this feature.
A meteorite crash-lands on earth and is discovered by an irritable bald fellow who just killed his wife. He fishes from its bowels a very strange looking bong, which he promptly sells to a local head shop. Having touched the meteorite, he's also slowly being covered with green fuzz, much like Jordy Verrill in Creepshow. The preview ends as one of the headshop owners takes a hit from the bong, shares a brief conversation with it, and then is transported to "somewhere else" for a threesome with a couple of green ladies.
Full of weed "culture" jokes and white-boy ragga-rap, this series obviously has a built in audience...and you all know who you are. Unfortunately, that audience is not me. I outgrew that "demon weed" a decade ago, and it's a rare occurrence that pot humor doesn't lose my interest after five minutes or so.
That being said, this looks like goofy harmless fun, and even the worst of Full Moon films are generally enjoyable on some level. It may be a far cry from classic Full Moon fare, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Charles Band is definitely due for a comeback and I'm impressed that he's managed to get this film booked in select theaters. The theatrical version will be in 3D and in Sniff-o-Rama. Not only that, but these shows seem like they're going to be quite a spectacle, with celebrity guests, autographing signings, and other surprises. Lord knows I'd be attending, but somehow Nowheresville, KS was left off of the schedule.
Must have been an oversight.
