Pigs [plays] like a Shake-N-Bake version of A Touch of Satan, or any number of early 70s excuses for morose middling macabre...

Audience Reviews for Pigs

This is one of those it's "so bad that it's kinda good" horror films, another Troma classic I suppose. It kinda reminded me of Manos, but slightly better (at least it has a plot of some sort) Like many of the Troma films, it featured bad acting, weird plot and dumb dialogue. Titular pigs were barely shown on screen as well as the whole set being so dark that you can't see anything Moral of the story: It's cheaper to feed pigs with corpse.

Toni Lawrence stars as a psychotic young woman who kills her father after he rapes her. This film is pretty bad; many scenes just don't make sense and some of them seem to come out of nowhere. On the plus side, a lot of the dopey characters are fun to watch (especially Zambrini), and the movie has a bizarre, dreamy (and sometimes nightmarish) quality throughout. The scene where Toni Lawrence hears loud pig squeals and then runs screaming through a field for what seems like an eternity is probably the best example of the weird, out-of-nowhere sequences that continuously crop up. Unprofessional filmaking at its best!
