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.

Somebody's Waiting for You

Lynn has a problem. Her father abused her, raped her, and beat her. Lynn killed her father, was put in an asylum, and still believes her father to be alive. Lynn escapes from asylum and heads on the highway to get away. Thus is the first five minutes or so of Daddy's Deadly Darling(Pigs was the title of video I saw). Then comes on one of the best and most ridiculous songs for a horror movie I've seen in a long time, "Somebody's waiting for you." I have to admit it is a pretty catchy tune. The tune plays while Lynn drives away from her troubles till she comes to a small cafe in the middle of nowhere that has a position for employment open. She secures her job here as a waitress and soon creates a bond with the cafe owner. His name is Zambrini and he has a bunch of human flesh-eating hogs in the back. Well, the story really gets bizarre here when we see Zambrini feed a freshly dug corpse to his livestock. Lynn too seems to not haven gotten over her killing ways completely and the two work together going hog wild over their work. This film is actually pretty good. I mean it is not a a good movie, but it is a whole lot better than I expected and I think will exceed many of your expectations. Marc Lawrence wrote, produced, directed, and starred in this film. His daughter Toni plays Lynn. Lawrence is able to create a very eerie feel to the film despite the total lack of logic that exists in the script. Some of the scenes are dream-like and Lynn's nightmare scene is very powerful. Lawrence also does a fine job acting in his professional low-key style. His daughter isn't too bad either and let's just say she sure knows how to fill out a nightgown. The deaths are not particularly plentiful or gruesome. The rest of the acting is adequate with a couple of old ladies doing very well as neighbors complaining about the pigs next door. Watch out for video misrepresentation: one of the older women's names is Katherine Ross(she starred in one movie...this one!) but is given top billing on many videos to try and make you think this is the other Katherine Ross(The Graduate and The Legacy). All in all a better than expected cinematic experience.
