A brother (Michael Welch) and sister (Molly Quinn) battle a witch (Lara Flynn Boyle) who lures teenagers into her suburban home with her special blend of marijuana where she then proceeds to kill and eat them to maintain her youth and beauty.
I was mildly drawn to this title by the cast, and then further encouraged by Aaron Christensen's review calling this a "spliff riff" and giving it modest comments. Frankly, with this sort of concept, anything better than complete rubbish is all we can ask for... and this definitely ranks above anything in Full Moon's "Evil Bong" series.
Some things about the film are terrible. Well, okay, many things. The lack of plot, the lack of humor, the weird subplot about the witch being a Nazi refugee that never seems to even get addressed... nor do we find out why she is involved in the marijuana business in the first place...
It was great to see Cary Elwes in a cameo (even if he does not get a credit on IMDb for some reason). And it is nice to see Michael Welch branching out (we had another horror, "Demented", released about the same time). Unfortunately, this can only be seen as a step down for Lara Flynn Boyle... are her days on red carpet over?
