Your Home for Horror


Horror and cannabis go together like sex and slashers, and we’ve got five of the best stoner moments from cult classics and genre giants.

One of the most iconic scenes in this genre is when someone lights up a blunt during fight or flight moments. It adds a bit of humor to the suspenseful atmosphere and lets you temporarily forget that your adrenaline is pumping.

Most tokers enjoy a good film after a few puffs of their favorite strain. An endless supply of buds ensures that no movie-watching goes without an extra dopamine kick. Follow suit and find out where to buy feminized cannabis seeds to start growing.

There are loads of horror movies that feature great stoner moments. Below are five of the most memorable weed-related scenes from some genre gems.

1. Halloween: Sharing is Caring

In this infamous Halloween weed scene, two high-school friends, Laurie and Annie, share a blunt. But little do they know what horrors await them.

After a few puffs, they seem relatively calm as they bump into Annie’s father, who happens to be a cop. As he speaks to them, their cognitive responses seem slightly slower than usual. Laurie’s paranoia kicks in as she anticipates that Annie’s dad smelled the weed (honestly, how could he not?). It’s a fun scene made tragic when we realize that sharing a joint will be one of the last things these two best friends will do together.

Of course, a psychotic killer named Michael Myers Michael Myers is about to change the course of both their lives. Often credited for giving rise to the slasher subgenre as we know it and still viewed today as one of the most iconic and influential horror films of all time, part of what made John Carpenter’s Halloween so memorable is its believable and compelling characters. And this weed scene is just one of many that make us fall in love with characters we hate to say goodbye to — even if we love to watch Michael massacre his way through Haddonfield.

2. Cabin in the Woods: Light One Up

The Cabin in the Woods is a wickedly smart and satirical — but reverential — take on genre tropes. But it starts as a typical wrong-turn thriller when five college friends find themselves in the tropiest setting of all, the titular cabin in the woods.

After accidentally unleashing hell on earth, each of the friends tries to survive the night, but they ultimately get picked off one by one in horrific ways until only two remain: the wholesome “final girl” and the token stoner. When it seems all is lost, the two survivors share a joint while contemplating the terror and absurdity of their tragic fates. It’s a great scene that compliments a wildly satisfying and unpredictable ending.

Add this modern horror classic to your 420-inspired movie marathon nights.

3. Hansel & Gretel Get Baked: Just a Bite

The 2013 film Hansel and Gretel Get Baked starts with Gretel and her boyfriend Austin reveling in their Blackforest joint. When he returns to buy more weed, he’s met with an unfortunate fate.

Sticking primarily to the original plot of the famous children’s story, it goes a little like this. A curious boy goes back to his weed supplier (who happens to be a little old lady) to get more buds. He asks her about her cultivating methods, and she tells him not to touch her gingerbread house. He defies the order, takes a bite from the gingerbread house (which is probably a cannabis edible), and goes into a slumber.

Either resin-dripping trichomes covered that cookie, or an apparent poisoning scenario occurred. The difference with this version is there’s weed involved, with no gingerbread house to munch on afterward. Well, there is, but the reason why Austin disappears is why they shouldn’t even try it.

Storylines like this encourage people to cultivate their own seeds and avoid popping into weird old ladies’ homes.

4. Sleepaway Camp 2: Weed Doesn’t Kill, People Do

In this campy and hilarious 1988 sequel to Sleepaway Camp, the murderous Angela has some serious “anti-weed” issues. So much so that she sneaks up on two camp attendees (twin sisters) in the woods, reveling in a joint.

She probably despises the euphoric effects, as she annoyingly looks at them while they blissfully enjoy each puff. Angela eventually knocks them out, burns one sister, and waits for the other to wake up. As the other sister wakes up, she discovers the burnt corpse of her sibling while Angela throws joints and liquor over her. Before setting her on fire, she declares, “Say no to drugs.”

Sleepaway Camp rightfully gets lots of love from genre fans due to its shocking ending, surprising twist, non-traditional killer, and stellar debut performance from Felissa Rose. But its sequel is far wilder, funnier, more gleefully over-the-top, and enormously fun. So, if you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth checking out.

5. Scary Movie: Wazzup With the Blunt? 

The Scary Movie franchise mixes many references to iconic horror films with outrageous humor. Watching hilarious movies like this one, or similar titles like Evil Bong, induces bouts of giggles amid suspenseful moments. Capitalizing on the phenomenal success of Wes Craven’s genre-redefining Scream (1996), the original Scary Movie (2000) pays tribute to the influential film and includes the iconic “Wazzup” weed moment.

Shorty, a cannabis-loving character, receives a call from Ghostface (the murderer). Ghostface asks him what he’s doing, and he replies, “Nothing, watching the game, smoking some bud.” Two of Shorty’s friends join the call, and all they say is, “Wazzup?!”As the words are boisterously spoken, the character’s tongue hangs out to emphasize the phrase. Ghostface’s frightening mask changes, too, seeming more stoned.

The Scary Movie joint scene is an epic moment for all who appreciate a bit of humor to tone down the horror.
