It’s been a little over four years since celebrated character actor and horror icon Robert Z’dar passed away, but he’s leaving behind at least another offering for horror fans with Indican Pictures’ latest Berlin acquisition, High On The Hog, from director Tony Wash.
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!
Z’dar’s final on-screen bow will hit theaters in select cities on April 19, joining him with a cast led by actor/producer Sid Haig (3 From Hell) and co-star Joe Estevez (Public Enemy), and with actresses Fiona Domenica and Brenda Whitehead. The film will show in ten major cities worldwide in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and North America, with Indican also planning a wider home release launch at a later date.
“I’ve always loved the grindhouse action movies of the 70’s and am happy to make this off beat, modernized take on them!” said Haig.
