Storyline

On the eve of legalization, a marijuana grower is brutally murdered. His best friend, against the advice of his mentor (Cheech Marin, Up In Smoke (1978)), teams up with a suspended narcotics investigator (A.C. Peterson, Shooter (2007)) to find the killer. Dark Harvest's lawless marijuana landscape creates a web of sexual intrigue and violence in which the cop and grower are forced to settle their moral differences to stop a cunning psychopath, and uncover a truth much bigger than the stolen drugs. This gripping independent vision is full of revelations and twists and marks Cheech Marin's first marijuana movie since his final 'Cheech and Chong' film of the 80's. Hugh Dillon accompanies the all-star cast as they race to find the killer in this action thriller. Written by James Hutson

Gritty and Real
17 February 2018 | by ColleenFarrisSee all my reviews

First saw this film at the Portland Film Festival and then rented it to watch with my family and friends. We enjoy independent films with realistic characters and storylines. Dark Harvest stays true to form as pre-legalization marijuana thriller. Enough twists and turns in the plot to keep it interesting and the cinematography adds an uneasiness to the backdrop of the characters' predicaments. Great acting from the writer/director, anti-hero James Hudson, Cheech Martin, A.C. Peterson and Tygh Runyan. Interesting note about Cheech (my parents talked of his comedic-weed-character film days with Chong) -- in this film he plays it serious as a successful dealer who wants to become a legal grower.
