The one and only Sid Haig is back with another ridiculous sounding horror thriller by the name of HIGH ON THE HOG. Fangoria got ahold of an exclusive look at the Tony Wash directed Southern shoot-em'-up that sounds like a clash between the horror genre and a crime thriller. They spoke with actress Fiona Domenica who had some interesting things to say about the film which you can read below.
The bits I’ve seen from the cut feel quite real. One of my friends saw a little clip and said it was a bit like RED STATE in how it was shot, even though the story is completely different. There are scenes where I think the audience can feel with what’s going on, like they’re there with us. HIGH ON THE HOG is horror, but it’s a crime thriller, too; there’s some gore, but also a little bit of something for everybody.
I really dug RED STATE as it's pretty much the only Kevin Smith flick I actually got into. So for me, comparing HIGH ON THE HOG to it has me very interested and I'll watch anything that stars Mr. Haig.
The story follows an undercover drug enforcement agent (Katrina Hill) as she infiltrates a weed farm run by Big Daddy (Haig) and his surrogate daughters. However, she’s surprised to find herself sympathizing with the farmers, and soon is caught in the crossfire between the criminals and her desperate fellow agents. Co-starring SOULTAKER alums Joe Estevez and Robert Z’Dar, HIGH ON THE HOG sports big guns, badass babes and enough Bible-belt bloodshed for any horror fan.
What else can you expect from HIGH ON THE HOG? L.A. Guns frontman and one-time Guns N' Roses guitarist Tracii Guns will be the man behind the score. Pretty cool right? Check out some pics below!
