The demonic serial killer Gingerdead Man is on an island, being fanned by topless women. He plans to murder Sarah Leigh, and the scene switches to Larnell, who is running a store. Larnell then goes to buy a cookie, and the film switches to Sarah Leigh flash backing to The Gingerdead Man movie. The Gingerdead Man kills two people working at the bakery and searches for Sarah Leigh.

The Gingerdead Man tracks down the lone survivor of his earlier murderous rampage, Sarah Leigh. But his murderous plans are thwarted when Sarah meets Larnell, who has a problem of his own: the evil bong, Eebee, has been unleashed once again. Bodies begin to pile up as the Gingerdead Man carves a path of mayhem. The only hope for Sarah and Larnell is to seek help from the dastardly Bong…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

“This is what happens when digital technology meets with old school props and makeup, when a stoner’s laid-back approach mixes with just enough ambition and financing to get the film printed and distributed. In the marketing material we’re told that Gary Busey and Tommy Chung star in the movie, but that’s basically a lie. They appear for brief moments in archival footage from the earlier films…” Molly Laich, Missoula Independent

“A lot of the scenes are still superfluous, but it doesn’t matter because they’re mostly fun. Especially seeing how they decided to bring the two franchises together. It’s so much more simple than I would have guessed, but they come together quite naturally. If I didn’t know better, I’d think that this was Full Moon’s plan all along.” Will, Silver Emulsion Film Reviews

Gingerdead Man Vs. Evil Bong is little more than a series of unrelated scenes and characters with little concern for plot and zero thought put into pacing. I cannot fathom why Band, who directed, continues to hire Kent Roudebush to write his scripts; none of his output (Zombies Vs. Strippers, Unlucky Charms, Killer Eye: Halloween Haunt) has been the least bit redeeming.” Alex Di Vincenzo, Broke Horror Fan

“There is plenty of nudity, an abundance of one liners, returning characters and pseudo-cameos, but no truly mobile critter. A good horror icon “versus” film should have a script that unites both universes and serve both antagonists. It’s the case here, but, sadly, it doesn’t know whether it wants to be a horror movie or a stoner comedy…” Steve Hutchison, Tales of Terror
