Plot:

Nerdy college student Alistair McDowell (David Weidoff) moves in with law school drop-out Larnell (John Patrick Jordan), typical “surfer-stoner” Bachman (Mitch Eakins) and former baseball player Brett (Brian Lloyd). During Alistair’s stay, Larnell sees an ad for a large bong, in which the previous owner claims it was “possessed”.

Later that night, Bachman wakes up in an exotic dancing club where he meets Ooga Booga and Ivan Burroughs. He’s introduced by one of the exotic dancers (Kristen Cladwell) who has skull heads on the cups of her bra.

When he comes near the bra, the skull heads start biting him in the neck and he bleeds to death. The next morning, the other roommates find Bachman dead on the couch. Alistair tells them that it’s probably from the weed that came with the bong…

Reviews:

” …if stupid-on-purpose moron comedies like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes or anything starring Pauly Shore trip your humor trigger, Evil Bong should be right up your alley. “Serious” horror-film fans can safely skip this one as the “horror” content is limited to a few gory bits when the boys run afoul of those flesh-eating stripper bras…” Fat Freddy’s Cat

” …the film does have some funny moments, whether it be declarations about the journalistic integrity of High Times magazine or the hateful insults from a wheelchair bound old man directed at his slacker grandson. A lot of the humor has a sitcom feel to it. That could also be because the majority of the film is set in the living room of this one apartment (much like a sitcom)…” Dread Central

“Of course the “special” effects are just the opposite, as practically inanimate puppets and props plague us for 90 minutes with little-to-no movement whatsoever. The entire thing happened inside the movie’s single set and I got real bored of this loser lair real quick.” The Tomb of Anubis

“Then there’s the bras. What’s scarier (and sexier) than cheap ass latex-looking skulls, sharks, and lips covering the nasty bits on the strippers that live in a club conveniently located right inside of a bong? Nothing, that’s what.” Horror Homework

“Silly, bloody, and so bad it’s worth watching once. Enter at your own risk.” Shirley Halperin, Steve Bloom, Reefer Movie Madness: The Ultimate Stoner Film Guide
