Weedjies: Halloweed Night – USA, 2019 – reviews

Weedjies: Halloweed Night is a 2019 comedy horror feature film directed by Danny Draven (Patient Seven; Reel Evil; Dark Walker; DeathBed) from a screenplay by Shane Bitterling (Puppet Master X: Axis Rising; Beneath Loch Ness).

Produced by Charles Band, the movie stars Brett Hargrave, Victoria Strange, Yo Ying and Johnny Lee.

 Official synopsis:

It’s the eve of Halloween in Las Vegas and three enterprising young ladies are throwing a massive 420 gala. But little do they know, they’re also going to unleash a freakish gaggle of party-loving nightmare-creatures from beyond!

When a midnight scavenger hunt for a rare bud of weed known as the “Golden Nug” brings a group of party-hungry stoners to a haunted hotel, it seems like it’ll be the greatest night ever. But when the enigmatic owner, Madam Haze, introduces them to the Weed-G-Board, they open a portal beyond our world, and unleash The Weedjies!

This group of ghastly hysterical creatures has only one mission: Party ‘till you die. Before Halloween night is over, the unwitting guests will have to fight for their right to party, and put The Weedgies back in the board – or end up sucked into the netherworld forever!

“If you know Full Moon and willingly sign up to view a film called Weedjies! Halloweed Night, I’m pretty sure you are already more than aware of what lies in store for you and your buddies. And at the very least I can report here today that Weedjies! Halloweed Night delivers on whatever promise you were hoping for.” Arrow in the Head

“The film may not hit for all audiences seeing as how it’s pretty comedic and outlandish. But for Full Moon fans looking for a high-spirited creature feature, Weedjies! Halloweed Night will hit the spot. Overall, it is an absurdly entertaining kick-off for the Deadly Ten film series.” Horror Geek Life
