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

Produced by Charles Band, the Full Moon production 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!

Reviews [click links to read more]:

“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

“The movie has great colour in the sets and costumes, lots of headbanging rock music, sexy talk and jokes, but the stars of the show are the wonderful puppet creatures. If you remember the poster for the movie Ghoulies, with that weird evil-looking creature crawling out of the toilet bowl, you’ll have a good idea what these ghoulies, gremlins and mini monsters look like. This is a fun film for this holiday season.” Quiet Earth

“Overall, we think that Weedjies: Halloweed Night does a fantastic job of capturing the essence of Ghoulies, and other small creature films while also doing a pretty good job at making it their own thing. The film in itself was a lot of fun to watch, and had a lot of moments where we were cracking up at how silly some of the situations were.” Midnight Horror Show

Weedjies: Halloweed Night is an unrestrained riot that delivers pretty much exactly what you would expect from it. With a central notion of cute girls in sexy outfits hunting mischievous monsters the film knows exactly the kind of audience it’s appealing to, and as it fully embraces the unbridled sense of its own anarchic absurdity and camp fun it only asks that you do the same.” Starburst

“Personally, I thought it was a mixed (dime) bag, but the effects are decent, the acting is above-average and some of the jokes made me chuckle. Ultimately, Weedjies is a movie that aims low and feels very predictable, but you really can’t fault it for mostly succeeding at what little it sought to accomplish.” Wicked Horror

Weedjies: Halloweed Night takes the Ghoulies story and successfully makes it what it’s intended to be: a fun wild modern update with some comic relief, cute but deadly creatures, and some pretty crazy kills, all in a smooth running 75-minute runtime.” World Film Geek
