A personal note from the Writer/Director Luke Brady:
“Since Young, High and Dead got it's UK VOD release the feedback and support has been incredible, I know that as a relatively unknown British Independent film we are competing against much bigger companies and well established filmmakers, so we still have our work cut out, but I couldn't be more happy with how things are going. The reviews and response to the film have been fantastic, so much so that I have already dived in and penned 10 pages of a sequel. It's very early stages but I hope to inject more blood, more horror, more kills and even more money in the next installment. So if things work out 2014 might be the start of Young, High and More Dead”
“A must watch for Halloween 2013, Great F@cK#en Movie, I’m impressed”
"Young, High and Dead is a fine example of UK independent horror and at times is scary as hell, often uncomfortable and a bloody good ride."

“Young, High And Dead” follows five friends who head to the woods for a weekend of drug fuelled madness their night soon descends into chaos when they pitch up next to the grave of a local missing child.
To celebrate a recent engagement a group of five friends embark on a camping trip they will never return from. Deep in the forest the group pitch next to the grave of a local missing child. As the killer watches them it’s not long before a night of drink and drugs turns into a waking nightmare. When the group awake in the early hours, they find themselves shackled and chained to trees, will the group stick and work together in order to exit the situation and the forest alive? Or will the killer leave them all Young, High and Dead?
Brady states that, ““Young, High and Dead” is a modern twist on a familiar genre piece.” He elaborates on the statement by adding, “As a huge fan of 80’s horror classics, I wanted to write and shoot something that harked back to this style of cinema. YHAD nods to certain influences in that era but hopefully brings a layered journey for the group of five friends, part autobiographical part fantasy, YHAD draws a story that hopefully audience members can engage and relate to. I tried to buck all trends and steer in the opposite direction to what people expect, not just narrative. The way I made the film is just as fantastical as the film itself.”
