Movie Review: ‘Halloweed’

Review by Lauryn Angel

A comedic blend of murder, mystery, and marijuana. Trying to escape the infamy of a serial killer father, Trent Modine and his goofball stoner stepbrother Joey, both seeking a new start, find refuge in the small town of Mooseheart. Mooseheart is known for its good weed and stories of the Candy Corn Killer. It doesn’t take long before the family name catches up with Trent and Joey and the duo must figure out how to sort through a string of murders that just so happen to start right as they arrive.

With a title such as Halloweed (no that’s not a typo), I think it’s quite obvious this won’t be your typical scary movie. Combine Half Baked with any one of The Wayans Scary Movie films and you’ve got Halloweed. From the weird animated opening credits, to the bad acting, you can’t help but laugh at how bad things get.

Certainly, this is being dubbed as a comedy because there’s no way anything scary can come out of this. Even the moments that should of probably been a tiny bit scary, still end up being laughable; One of those “Seriously, this is horrible” laughs and not because of genuine humor. If anything good comes out of this, I’m convinced it would be to show why you should NOT become a weed head.
