Oh sure, Mr. Band churned out a bunch of fairly entertaining ultra-schlock a few decades ago, but if his latest productions are any indication, the guy's not even trying anymore. All Band seems to need is a silly title, a stupid concept and some colorful DVD cases, and Boom! he's moving on to the next project. (Those who think I'm being a bit harsh need to sit through a triple feature of Decadent Evil, Doll Graveyard and The Gingerdead Man and then get back to me.) Even those who have a huge soft spot for cheapo horror (like, um, me) will find very little to enjoy over the course of that 3+ hour triple feature. (Yeah, Band's movies are that short.)
So now comes Charles Band's next attempt at cult classic-dom, and it's a Tommy Chong-led horror-comedy called, yes, Evil Bong. The DVD doesn't hit until October 10th, but there's a wacky new trailer to check out, just in case you were wondering how silly this concept will actually look onscreen. Hoo boy. (Yes, I'll see the damn thing, and yes, I'll still give it a fair shake, but c'mon ... EVIL BONG??)
After the jump ... a poem.
There once was a pothead called Chong
Whose career had gone all sorts of wrong
He got thrown in jail
For selling pipes through the mail
So after release he does Evil Bong
