Storyline

Lynn Hart is a disturbed young woman who escapes from a mental hospital where she was committed for killing her abusive father who raped her. Stealing a nurse's uniform and car, Lynn ends up in a small California town where she meets and shacks up with Zambrini, an old farmer who runs the local motel and roadside café. Zambrini also owns a group of pigs that he keeps in a pen behind his house who have somehow developed a taste for human flesh. When Lynn begins killing a number of men who remind her of her dead father, Zambrini helps her out by disposing of the bodies to the pigs. Investigating the disappearances, the local sheriff eventually becomes suspicious of Lynn's past and a private investigator, hired by the hospital to find her, slowly close in on Lynn.

What a bucket of slop!
10 April 2004 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

After a pre-credit sequence which takes a principled stand against childhood sexual abuse by showing an older adult male's hand feeling up the bottom of a voluptuous and very mature-looking "teenager", this movie gets right down to business with it's two chief exploitative elements--sex, of course, and pigs (which is what this movie was originally called). The plot revolves around two psychos--a sexually active young woman (apparently the grown-up version of the "teenager" from the pre-credit sequence) who murders her many male conquests, and her elderly partner-in-crime, a pig farmer who feeds the bodies to his porkers. This movie thus is basically a rural version of Mantis in Lace with the LSD sequences replaced by surreal footage of rampaging pigs. Still it should be admired for its sheer audacity and its bizarre and ludicrous plot (it's totally original if nothing else). It also manages to shoe-horn in one of the most hypocritical feminist themes this side of I Spit on Your Grave. What a bucket of slop!
