High on the Hog Synopsis
Part comedy and part horror, High on the Hog takes place on a remote farm where everything is grown, including the green herb. 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.
In addition to his starring role, Sid Haig produced the film. Of the project, Haig had this to say:
“I’ve always loved the grindhouse action movies of the 70’s and am happy to make this off beat, modernized take on them!”
Sounds like great fun! Here’s a look at the official poster art.
High on the Hog debuts in Los Angels and 10 other major cities on April 19. Be sure to check out Fandango for movie listing times and to sign up for e-mail alerts.
Robert Z’dar was a cool guy and I look forward to seeing him give this final performance. Of course you know we love Sid Haig and will be first in line to support his projects. This looks like it could be a fun ride!
