I’ll Be Blunt: Evil Weed Looks Like A Pretty Good Joint

EvilWeedYes, that headline is terrible. Beyond terrible. As bad of a joke as it may be, I’m still intrigued by the trailer for writer/director David Wexler’s upcoming horror outing “Evil Weed.” That being said, the track record for drug-related genre fare is spotty at best. “Shrooms,” for example, was painfully boring and hopelessly muddled, as were filmmaker Charles Band’s two grossly moronic “Evil Bong” movies. Could this be the movie that stylishly and coherently melds drug usage with a concept that doesn’t come across as preachy and calculated? One can only hope. However, one look at the synopsis may obliterate your initial opinions, assuming, of course, that they were positive to begin with.

Here’s what it’s all about:

Emily and her sister Danielle play host to friends at their parents’ country house in the Hamptons. The weekend is poised for success. Murph, Emily’s boyfriend, has chosen this occasion to propose, their respective best friends seem to be hitting it off, and Danielle’s alienated boyfriend scores in the clutch by supplying the drugs.

But when his bag of unicorn weed livens up the party, some of the group begin to suffer from a weird reaction. Inexplicable violence abruptly brings down their high. This October, a certain few friends are going to wish they hadn’t inhaled.

What did you expect from the guy who created MTV’s “College Life?” The trailer in all its THC-soaked glory lies below.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    SERIOUSLY? We’re making movies about Weed that turns you into psychos? Well I guess that’s a way to go. I mean it’s the opposite of what normally happens when people smoke. Except those morrons in the commericals that got so high they ran someone over in a drive through, cause I’ve seen THAT happen a buncha times when people were high! But seriously, I don’t see a movie called Evil Alcohol about liquor that makes you violent when you drink…oh wait cause it really happens. LOL.
