Blockbuster Hit

The famous 1930’s exploitation flick, Reefer Madness, informed potential stoners that taking bong hits can lead to all sorts of evil behavior including murder and suicide. Because pot isn’t just a gateway drug -- it’s the gateway to Hell. Yeah, ok, what were they (not) smoking?

Today’s filmmakers don’t always take the wacky weed so seriously. Charles Band of Puppet Master fame will host the Arizona premiere of Evil Bong 3-D: The Wrath of Bong at Madcap Theaters. The flick follows a group of heroic stoners who attempt to save the world from the destruction unleashed by a giant, sentient bong with a malevolent streak.

“Audiences go to 3-D movies for one reason; to have things thrown at them… to duck and to reach out to touch things, and we’re not going to let them down,” says Band. “[This movie] will feature “the record amount of naked alien beauties, boobies, and reefer hits to ever be presented in 3-D.” The experience also includes a visit from House of 1000 Corpses actor Sid Haig, and scratch-and-sniff cards that promise to make the theater smell like your old college dorm room.
