Here’s another seventy-minute long commercial trying to sell you shit you don’t need. Charles Band even uses his merch as set decoration and as part of the plot. Also, at what point, exactly, did Gingerdead Man infiltrate this universe, and why haven’t they made a Gingerdead Man movie since? This is confusing. Band himself must be scratching his head by now.
Hey! We can’t have decent puppets, so let’s get a shitload of boobs, said no one ever... except Charles Band. Full Moon Pictures is one of the only studios left that’ll give you horror and gratuitous nudity in the same film. Make no mistake; this movie is nothing but incessant dialogue from characters who have nothing interesting to say, interrupted by boob shots.
Evil Bong 5 is super racist, but I’m sure someone at Full Moon would insist I just “didn’t get it”. There’s a lot of shit I don’t get, like half the jokes in this film. It’s safe to say that Evil Bong has established itself as some kind of authority on stoner humor, but those inside jokes and recurring characters aren’t relevant. I’ve seen all these movies and I forgot who half of those guys are.
The Almanac of Terror 2019: 89 Years of Horror Movie Statistics

The following recommendation lists are based on 2000 horror movie reviews. They were extracted from a database and formatted for this book. Tales of Terror (www.terror.ca) is an online “gamified” tool designed for horror fans, students, authors and filmmakers. “Gamification” is the adaptation and transformation of tangible concepts into empirical games. Not unlike sport publications, fantasy leagues and role-playing games, the Almanac of Terror mixes and aggregates different statistics, facts, ratings and opinions. Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability. We sometimes use the “creepiness” factor when populating certain lists.
