What's It About?

Charles Band's EVIL BONG series is the world's only weed-centric comedy/fantasy film franchise, an insane blend of stoner shenanigans, smutty humor and the sort of insane supernatural monster mayhem fans have come to expect from Full Moon. Presented here in this beautiful stash box collection for the very first time in HD and on Blu-ray, the original 2006 EVIL BONG movie has been fully remastered from the 35mm negative, with brand new visual effects added. It joins its celebrated sequels, many of which are also making their debuts on Blu-ray, along with our sidecar stoner shocker WEEDJIES! and tons of extra space to store upcoming entries in the EVIL BONG series...or whatever else you're trying to hide from your mom. It's the ultimate weed culture cinema collectible.

Video/Audio

All of the films in this set look good. I mean, they should. The earliest film in this set was released in 2006, and was shot on film, so it should look good. The first film looks the best out of all the films as it was actually shot on film. The rest of the films were shot digitally, but they look good too. WEEDJIES is the only film in the set that looks like an actual movie, with dynamic lighting and widescreen compositions. The colors really pop and it feels like what a horror film should feel like. The other films in the set are shot flat and kind of lifeless, but the transfers look good. 

The first EVIL BONG film actually has lossless audio and it sounds pretty nice. The rest of the films all have lossy audio, but they sound good too. There are no subtitles on any of the films in this set.

Let's talk about the packaging. It is really nice. In fact, this is one of the nicest sets I have ever seen and this is coming from someone who has been collecting for 30-plus years. The box is covered on all sides with imagery from the films. The box opens on one side (it closes with hidden magnets) to reveal the nine blu-rays located in the middle of the box. On each side are places for your stash. The box advertises that you can put other blu-rays in the box alongside the others, but because the supports are the way they are, there is no room to fit any more blu-rays. I mean, you could put them in there on a slant, but not the way the others are. You can take out WEEDJIES to put in the blu-ray for EVIL BONG 888, but that's about it. The box is very sturdy and looks great on the shelf.

Overall

Say what you will about these films, this set is a monster and it belongs in every Full Moon fan's collection. You get nine films on blu-ray along with room to store your precious smoke. Each film is a fun watch, more or less, and I would recommend this set to any Full Moon fan.
