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.

I saw this under the title PIGS.

Lynn Webster (Toni Lawrence, Marc's real-life daughter) is sent to an asylum for shock therapy after killing her father when he tried to rape her. She escapes, steals a car and ends up in a small farming town where weird truck stop owner Mr. Zambrini (Marc Lawrence) gives her a waitress job for room and board. The relationship ends up working out nicely for both -- Lynn goes on a killing spree after almost getting raped again, while Zambrini covers her ass by hacking up the bodies and feeding them to his flesh-craving pet pigs he keeps pinned up behind the restaurant.

Familiar character actor Marc Lawrence made his directorial debut (and as 'F.A. Foss,' also his screenplay debut) with this very cheap and dark-looking, but fairly well-acted and sometimes creepy, low-budget backwoods horror flick. It laid unreleased for about 12 years, but I've seen worse.
