Duuuude! Larnell (John Patrick Jordan), Bachman (Mitch Eakins), Brett (Brian Lloyd), Alistair (Peter Stickles), and Rabbit (Carl Davis) are back and faced with an entirely new evil after surviving their battle with the diabolical King Bong. The third in the Evil Bong trilogy Evil Bong 3: Wraith of Bong finds the boys once again fighting for their own survival as well as the fate of the world after an alien bong crashes on Earth with visions of world domination. Soon they find themselves once again sucked into the strange bong world where they will have to deal with naked alien girls and much more in order to save the world with the help of a another familiar talking bong the sassy diva Eebee (Michelle Mais) the evil bong herself, Grandpa (Jacob Witkin), and his strange mute “nurse” Nurse Hookah (Christina DeRosa).
As a long time follower of this franchise and Full Moon, in general I had a lot of fun watching this movie. This is the perfect kind of film to watch with a group of close friends and share a night of laughs with. As big fan of Irwin Keyes, having him make an appearance in the movie was a big bonus for me on a personal level. Be warned this film is not going to be for everyone, if you are not a fan of silly stoner humor than you will find this movie completely stupid but if you have an open mind and are a fan of this sort of humor you are in for a great viewing experience. If you go into this franchise expecting big budget special effects and deep thought provoking story telling then you have made a wrong turn somewhere in the first place to be honest.
Special effects wise it is you’re typical Full Moon style 80’s CG after all why fix what is not broken. When it comes to retro style horror fun there are few and far between, studios that come even close to the high quality material put out by Full Moon. Every time I sit down with one of their films, it brings me back to my childhood growing up on low budget exploitation and horror flicks and Evil Bong 3 is no exception and once again delivers the retro fun many fan find themselves craving as horror has taken a turn in a entirely different direction during the last few generations.
Once again, the soundtrack is amazing all three Evil Bong films have had stellar soundtracks featuring both well-known and unsigned artists. My personal favorite track this time around has to be “I Think God Smokes Weed” by Echo Movement. They really did a great job at picking songs that capture the spirit of both the film and the counter culture in general.
One thing that really impresses me with this trilogy is the fact each of the films have blended pot humor with different genres, the first film felt more like a horror film, the second an adventure flick, and this latest addition is very sci-fi heavy. This factor makes watching the three films back to back in order a very interesting ride to say the very least and I recommend fans of the franchise do in order to obtain maximum enjoyment. Re visit the first two films ore view them for the first time perhaps then pop in this third flick and try to tell me you did not have a great time doing so.
Pack a bowl, twist a spliff, fill a bag full of vapors do what you got to do then hotbox you’re viewing room of choice and prepare for a large helping of B-movie cheese with a sprinkle of T&A for good measure to keep your elevated mind securely hypnotized and taken on a stony journey into weirdness. This is a great addition to the trilogy and perfectly captures the feeling of the previous two films further adding the franchises legacy among stoners and Full Moon fans across the globe. If you hated the prior films you will hate this one but if you love this franchise as I do I guarantee you a good time and recommend you pick up your copy of Evil Bong 3: Wraith of Bong as soon as humanly possible. You can currently obtain all three films together in a very low priced box set over at Full Moon Direct for the price tag of $25.
