Evil Bong

Another Collide song is set to be immortalized in film. "Euphoria" is being used in the film "Evil Bong." That's right, you read it right, we said "Evil Bong." It is a Horror Comedy that stars Tommy Chong of the famous Cheech and Chong duo. For any of you trekkies out there, it also has a cameo appearance by William Shatner.

The film revolves around a possessed evil bong named EeBee. We hear that it is destined to be a cult classic. As the title suggests, the tale of 'Evil Bong' is quite a simple one. A studious young college kid moves in with a bunch of stoners who purchase a possessed bong from an ad in the back of High Times magazine. The bong arrives, and the roomies smoke out, only to find out, one by one, their “ultimate trip” ends in death.

The movie will be released on DVD late October, 2006 at Blockbuster Videos and Hollywood Videos nationwide.
