Storyline

When John takes his San Francisco friends to his deceased uncle's remote ranch to hunt wild pigs, it seems like a typical guys weekend with guns - despite the presence of John's sexy girlfriend Brooks. But as John and his crew trek deeper into the forest, they begin tracking the awful truth about his uncle's demise and the legend of The Ripper -- a murderous three-thousand-pound black boar! Their pursuit leads them through fields of marijuana and into the muddy landscape of Big Wallow, involving high-powered weaponry, the violent and unpredictable Tibbs Brothers, massacred emus, a machete-toting Hippie Stranger, vengeful rednecks, and throat-slitting Cult Girls who grow dope by day and worship a Giant Killer Pig by night. By the time the pig hunt is done, no one is innocent - or unscathed. Not for the faint of heart, PIG HUNT is a darkly comic horror film that combines the best of DELIVERANCE, JAWS, and DINER, but remains uniquely Nor-Cal in its tone and scope. It is cinematic ...

I have a better title
19 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film should be called Train Wreck.

It's a much better descriptor for what you'll see.

The plot has like 20 sub plots and you can't follow any of them. Then throw in a big pig that may or may not be killing people. Too hard to tell.

Lots of oblligatory hillbilly scenes even tho this is North California, not Tennesee.

I tell you, I had a hard time understanding who was who, how they interacted and why.

And then there's the sound mix -- it's either super load or super low. Ugh.

It's a mess of a movie not worth your time.
