BILL PLYMPTON IN PERSON AT SCREENINGS THROUGH SUNDAY.

"a lot like GREASE - only raunchier, more perverted and, most important, produced, animated and directed by Bill Plympton."
- V.A. Musetto, NY POST

"Gleefully outrageous. . .the lunacy and incongruity rarely let up. Mr. Plympton nicely walks the border between ridiculously gross and outright offensive. . . but the sex that’s shown will be of interest primarily to poultry."
- Neil Genzlinger, NY TIMES

GIANT CHICKEN IN, WELL, PERSON AT SOME SCREENINGS.

"Boasting a veritable cult cast (Matt Groening, Beverly D’Angelo, two Carradines), adolescent, sex-crazed humor and a genuine sweetness underneath its gruesome veneer, the film is a must for Plympton fans."
- Raven Snook, TIME OUT NY

THROUGH SUNDAY, ALL TICKET BUYERS RECEIVE A SKETCH BY BILL PLYMPTON

"Plympton has an eye for the grotesque and a taste for gross-out humor - in one scene a chain-smoking biology teacher literally pukes his guts out. . .HAIR HIGH nails the high-school experience."
- Joshua Land, VILLAGE VOICE

"Mr. Plympton's spectacular drawings delight in twisting the human body inside out, and his hand-drawn lines jitter and shake as if they're wired on caffeine."
- Grady Hendrix, NEW YORK SUN

"HAIR HIGH is like taking drugs through the optic nerve."
- Chris Gore, FILM THREAT

"Cartoonist Bill Plympton's latest is an amusing send-up of late '50s/early '60s high-school melodramas and teen-tragedy pop hits. Plympton has fun exaggerating the period's social and stylistic norms to an atomic degree. . .it's a good setting for his swacked sexual/physical humor to run rampant."
-Deninis Harvey, Variety

An outrageous Gothic myth from the 1950’s, HAIR HIGH is the legend of Cherri and Spud, a teenage couple who are murdered on prom night and left for dead at the bottom of Echo Lake.

Exactly one year later, their skeletal remains come back to life and they return to the prom for revenge and their justly-deserved crowns.
