Evil Weed (2009)
Plot: Sisters Emily and Danielle invite friends to their parents’ house in the Hamptons for a weekend, and everything’s going well until the partiers smoke some tainted marijuana that turns the dream holiday into a nightmare in this gory horror flick. As some members of the group experience a violent reaction to the weed, the others find themselves in a horrific fight for their lives.
My Review: I went into this movie with a few expectations, that since the movie was about marijuana that there had to be some great funny parts in it, that the acting would suck, the budget would be low, and that obviously they’d have some nudity. Well I was wrong about the humor and nudity. I thought with a movie about weed there was undoubtedly going to be some cool “high” experiences. But nope, not a one.
Plain and simple, this movie is terrible. If your really that curious about it, its only a little over an hour. I didn’t even realize that when I first popped it on last night via Netflix/Xbox. If I had seen that I would have known right off the bat that it was some sort of film school project done by some college students.
This movie is about people who smoke “tainted” pot, and turn into weird zombie creatures who walk around on all fours and growl with weird teeth and green glowing eyes, and they try to kill each other. Eventually those left figure out that water hurts these weird creature people.
Maybe if your into “fan films” and don’t mind that sort of quality. You might get a kick out of this. But it was totally NOT what I was expecting. I wanted a funny comedy silly horror movie.
Gore/FX: There was only really one scene that was interesting. That was the decapitation scene. They pulled if off well for their obvious low budge. But the movie isn’t worth watching just for that. Its not really that good of a shot, just the best one from the film.
Sexual Content: A little side boob action during a sex scene that’s kinda stupid.
Acting: As expected, its over done and bad. One of the girls is totally voice dubbed through the whole thing.
Overall: So, lets see, there is NO comedy, and NO real horror, no budget and no good actors, so really if you like that sort of thing you might like this. To be honest, I think a giant pot plant walking around killing people would have been MUCH more entertaining.
