EXECUTIVE PRODUCER KEVIN LOCKHART’S PRO-LEGALIZATION GRINDHOUSE THRILLER
“HIGH ON THE HOG” STARRING ICONIC HORROR STAR SID HAIG TO HIT THE BIG SCREEN
CHICAGO, IL, October 10, 2017 – Kevin Lockhart, writer and executive producer, will soon be releasing
his first feature film “High on the Hog”, starring horror film icon Sid Haig (“The Devil’s Rejects”, “House
of 1000 Corpses”, “Jackie Brown”, “Kill Bill: Vol 2”). Directed by Tony Wash (“It’s My Party and I’ll
Die if I Want To”), “High on the Hog” is slated to be released in late 2017.
A film with a pro-legalization message, “High on the Hog” is a grindhouse mystery thriller about a
marijuana farmer and the lengths he will go to in order to protect his small town and his family. Sid Haig
leads the cast as Big Daddy, the film’s protagonist marijuana farmer, alongside action icons Robert Z’Dar
and Joe Estevez.
‘It all started with an idea to make an action-packed film to tell the story of a marijuana farmer and his
unconventional family, and evolved into the exploitation thrill-ride that is the final cut. We have an
impeccable cast lead by Sid Haig, a knock-your-socks-off soundtrack, and a unique editing style that is
sure to leave audiences wanting more from our independent film. The crew involved did an excellent job
this film was truly a great group effort.’
- Kevin Lockhart, WRITER & EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
‘This film is a really cool mix of sex, drugs, and rock and roll and I had a blast orchestrating the story on
a visual level. On top of that, it was important for me to translate the core elements of the script: Family,
commitment and freedom - so audiences can see that this isn’t just another gritty grindhouse flick. It
contains heart, story, and characters you grow to love.’
- Tony Wash, DIRECTOR
‘It really is one-of-a-kind - from the experimental editing schemes to the over-the-top, outlaw nature of its
performances. You will be hard-pressed to find another movie that is as innovative, exhilarating, and
kinetic as this one. High on the Hog is a balls-to-the-wall thrill ride from start to finish.’
- B.A. "Ben" Lewandowski, EDITOR
Five years in the making, “High on the Hog” is an example of independent filmmaking perseverance and
dedication to the craft. The film was shot in Northwest, Illinois in 2012. Possessing one of the most
unique editing schemes in recent memory, a terrific rapid-fire rock and roll soundtrack and a crazy,
grindhouse feel, “High on the Hog” plays as a truly unique viewing experience from start to finish.
Fast paced, heartfelt, and unrelenting - this exploitation film features some of the most controversial
topics of our time: marijuana, dirty cops, serial killers, and a whole lot of sex and rock n' roll. “High on
the Hog” is a wild ride from start to finish.
