HIGH School is another Park City at Midnight film that will show at Sundance on January 24th at 11:30pm. A real life horror for character Henry Burke (Matt Bush), his admittance to a prestigious college comes into jeopardy when Principal Gordon (Michael Chiklis) institutes mandatory drug testing. Other stars include Adrien Brody (Splice), Colin Hanks (Untraceable), and Michael Vartan (Dead Man's Curve). Both comedy, thriller and a story about coming of age HIGH School is full of "deviant characters" and "frenzied chaos" (Sundance). All the details on the film inside.

A synopsis for HIGH School here:

"So it is the end of the school year, and smarmy Principal Gordon (Michael Chiklis) has suddenly instituted a zero-tolerance crusade against his nemesis, the reviled marijuana. A mandatory drug test for all students is to be administered, failure of which will result in immediate expulsion. Normally, this would be of no consequence to straight-arrow valedictorian Henry Burke, except he just tried ganja for the very first time. With his college scholarship hanging in the balance, Burke begrudgingly teams up with charismatic pothead Travis Breaux to do the only thing they can think of to neutralize this threat—get the entire student body stoned.
