The Dudes are back! And this time, they’re right in the middle of a galactic stoner-horror comedy!! Larnell, Bachman, Brett and Alistair survived their battle with the dubious KING BONG. Now, they’ve set up shop, a head shop, in Venice Beach. Just as they think all of their troubles are behind them, an Alien Bong crash lands on earth and really starts to harsh their mellow. The guys can’t resist a toke and they are enslaved in the Alien Bong’s far out Bong World. where sexy Alien Chicks and other cosmic calamities await them. Enlisting the help of their arch enemies, Grandpa and the EVIL BONG, the Dudes must stop the Alien Bong before our planet goes totally up in smoke.

The only reason I have Evil Bong 3: The Wrath Of Bong! in my collection is because it was included in that 20 horror movie pack I got at Wal-Mart on a whim.  It was $5.  I knew the risks.  I understood that there were some rather nasty depth charges included in this sucker.  Matter of fact, one could argue that the entire collection is nothing but B-horror cheese, but that is neither here nor there with this review, so I shall digress.  For now.  Anyway…

To this day, I have not seen either the original Evil Bong, or the first sequel, Evil Bong 2.  I’m not even sure what the subtitle of Evil Bong 2 is.  Neither do I feel the need to seek out those two titles, regardless of my OCD screaming at me to complete the series.  Nope nope nope.  Not going to do it.  I even took my time getting to this one, really.  And now that I’ve watched Evil Bong 3: The Wrath Of Bong!, I have to say that I did experience the pain and lamented the loss of time used to watch this thing, I have to say on a certain level, Evil Bong 3 is actually kind of entertaining, on a mindless kinda level.  Really mindless.  I get the feeling that this may have been some kind of irreverent tongue-in-cheek kind of thing, with everything being so bloody over-the-top you can’t help but chuckle a bit and shake your head at the absurdity banding about in front of you.

Mind you, being the farthest thing from a “stoner”, things did get a bit overplayed for me.  Most of the jokes fell flat, the characters felt more like they came from a bad Canadian television program or something (if there’s anyone from Canada reading this…sorry, eh), and the groans of frustration came from me at an alarming rate.  Full Moon Entertainment, I realize, was never meant to be putting out quality movies, and they have a certain kind of charm in the pantheon of bad horror flicks, but if watching Evil Bong 3 was any indication, I’m going to have to pass on wasting my time and brain cells on the other two.
