Things are about to get rough for both the Gingerdead Man and the Evil Bong as they face off against each other in a battle nobody was asking for!
The Gingerdead Man series has had its ups and downs. An entertaining start (The Gingerdead Man) was followed by a terrible sequel (Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust) then complimented by a fun return to form with the third movie (Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver).
Whereas the Evil Bong series has had even more ups and downs. The middle of the road start (Evil Bong) was followed by a slightly better sequel (Evil Bong 2: King Bong) before the third movie stunk up the screen (Evil Bong 3: The Wrath of Bong).
This crossover comes after the first three films in both series’ and before Evil Bong 420. We’ll get to that movie but for now, it’s all about Gingerdead Man vs. Evil Bong. In one of the worst Full Moon Pictures’ movies ever.
The Gingerdead Man is on a tropical island where we get Full Moon obligatory nudity as the cookie is being fanned by topless women. Here we see just how little care there is for the franchise going forward. What is it? It’s the super-imposed mouth that he uses to talk now. The laziest thing they could have done and makes him look so bad.
He begins to babble on about getting his revenge on Sarah Leigh (Robin Sydney). Who ‘killed’ him in the original movie. Mind made up, the evil cookie heads over to her bakery to finish the job. Elsewhere Larnell (John Patrick Jordan) from the Evil Bong movies leaves his bong store to get a cookie from her bakery. Thus our two leads are introduced.
If by some chance you were coming into this film having not seen any of the films in either franchise, it handily gives us abridged flashbacks of the two series to date. Making this already short movie even shorter. It doesn’t take long for the Gingerdead Man to arrive and start killing some of the bakery employees but where is the Evil Bong, Eebee!?
Locked in a cupboard she has also been unleashed by Rabbit (Sonny Carl Davis). Who hasn’t learned anything apparently. However her reign of ‘terror’ pales in comparison to the evil cookie. Realising it needs to be stopped, Eebee teams up with Sarah and Larnell. The trio have to put a stop to the Gingerdead Man once and for all.
Easily the worst film in either franchise which isn’t saying much at all. Gingerdead Man vs Evil Bong is lacklustre in every department. From the lazy and rehashed story to the lazy and tired acting to lack of effort in effects. This is one Full Moon Pictures’ movie to miss.
It’s mind-numb in just how boring it is. Rather then go all out with silliness, it goes all out with stupidity. It’s the difference between being entertaining and being utterly devoid of life.
Both franchises had run out steam at this point so sending them out in a vs movie is the equivalent of picking a corpse up and waving its arms about.
Gingerdead Man vs. Evil Bong
The Final Score - 2/10
