Anchor Bay Films Goes Back to High School

Get Baked With the Blu-ray™ and DVD September 4th

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 21, 2012) - Anchor Bay Films proudly presents the "high"-larious teen rebellion comedy High School, on Blu-ray™ and DVD September 4th. High School's SRP is $26.98 for the DVD and $29.99 for Blu-ray™. Pre-book is August 8th.

Starring Academy Award™ winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist), Michael Chiklis ("The Shield", Fantastic Four), Sean Marquette (Seabiscuit), Matt Bush (Piranha 3DD), Colin Hanks (The House Bunny, AMC's "Mad Men"), Adhir Kalyan ("Rules of Engagement") and Yeardley Smith (Fox's "The Simpsons"), High School is the story of soon-to-be valedictorian Henry Burke (Bush) who, after taking a hit of the chronic for the first time, must pass a mandatory drug test administered by his school's maniacal principal (Chiklis).

Henry is left with two options: fail and lose his college scholarship, or team up with his stoner friend Breaux (Marquette) to steal a high powered ganja from law student-turned-drug-dealer Psycho Ed (Brody) and spike the school's bake sale brownies, getting the whole school -- faculty included -- completely stoned out of their minds. After all, if everyone fails -- then no one fails. What could possibly go wrong with their half-baked plan?

With New York Times declaring: "[Adrien] Brody gives a funny, wild-man performance, and Crave Online calling the film "an entertaining ride," High School is a fun, must see stoner comedy that is not to be missed!

High School Blu-ray™ and DVD features an audio commentary with executive producer/writer/director John Stalberg, Jr. and hysterical never-before-seen deleted scenes.

"Not just a stoner comedy, it's a stoner EPIC."
- Chris Bumbray,

"A Must See Comedy You Can Watch Over and Over"
- Sean W. Oliver, Campus Circle
