In our web series Chronic Horror, we explore the intersection of horror fandom and cannabis culture, even though the two worlds rarely collide onscreen. Green Rush, however, is a heist horror flick about the cannabis industry. Today, Dread Central is thrilled to present an exclusive clip from the film, embedded at the top of the article. Read more about the movie and see the trailer below.
Inspired by actual events, witness a shocking story that rocked the cannabis community when Green Rush arrives on Digital and On Demand April 14th from Lionsgate. Produced by MMA fighter and Hall of Fame inductee Urijah Faber, this intense and gritty heist film follows a legitimate grower’s fight for survival when criminals attempt to rob him of his livelihood in northern California following the state’s legalization of marijuana. Mixing the worlds of the legal and the illegal, this film shines a light on the different sides of the marijuana business. From director Gerard Roxburgh, Green Rush will be available on Digital for the suggested price of $9.99 SD, $9.99 HD, and $12.99 UHD, On Demand, and at Redbox.
This chilling, white-knuckle thriller inspired by actual events unfolds in the wilds of California, now a lawless free-for-all thanks to legalized cannabis. Rob, his pregnant lover Maria, and his brother Caleb are struggling to make a profit from their marijuana farm. But soon, an angry worker turns against them and joins forces with sadistic criminal Ticker to steal the farm’s hidden supply of cash. When the three are held hostage and forced to submit to Ticker’s cruel games, their survival will take courage, smarts—and blood.
Green Rush stars Kriss Dozal (TV’s The Hill, Halloween Hell), Mike Foy (TV’s The Rookie, Backstrom, and NCIS), Paul Telfer (TV’s Days of Our Lives, Once Upon a Time, and The Vampire Diaries), Declan Michael Laird (TV’s Big Dogs, The Other Night, and What Happens at Night), and Misha Crosby (TV’s American Horror Story, and TV’s The Lying Game).
