Indican Pictures has picked up distribution rights to Tony Wash’s HIGH ON THE HOG. The film stars Sid Haig (3 From Hell), Joe Estevez (Public Enemy) and Robert Z’dar (Maniac Cop I & II & III), in his final role.
The film is a genre bender as Big Daddy (Haig) fights against the government, to maintain his grow-op. Haig is also the producer on this grindhouse feature, with early details on the release of HIGH ON THE HOG available now.
Part comedy and part horror, HIGH ON THE HOG takes place on a remote farm. Here, everything is grown, including the green herb. But, local government officials need a bust and they have targeted Big Daddy’s farm for their hit. Big Daddy is ready for the federales, with his arsenal of weapons and take-no-prisoners farmhands. And, just before the big fight, they have to pack that pipe tight!
With a potent strain of pot sweeping the City, DTA agents attempt to infiltrate a small town farming operation that has a strong leader and interesting family members.
Indican Pictures has slated the film for an initial theatrical launch on 19th April, HIGH ON THE HOG will show in several cities across the world including: Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and of course the USA.
HIGH ON THE HOG has also just been picked up at the Berlin Film Festival, Indican Pictues expects a wider launch, on home entertainment formats, at a future date.
Recently, Haig says of the film and its debut:
“I’ve always loved the grindhouse action movies of the 70’s and am happy to make this off beat, modernized take on them!”
