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.

Honestly, I saw this movie against my will. To my surprise, it was a joy and a pleasure.
This movie is pure camp. I knew the plot of the movie within the first 20 minutes to be honest. A scary adventure for the cityfolks amongst the redneck, backwoods folk. However, even though they do pay homage to Deliverance - this movie goes in an entirely different direction.
The anchor in this film for me was the lead actress. She was subtle yet strong - and sexy all at the same time. The characters were surprising because it included many minority actors who brought strong performances. As ridiculous as the plot was, I enjoyed the acting. I even enjoyed when you saw them cringe at the clichéd lines because they gave it their all. That is the KEY for good camp.
The cinematography was clearly lacking, but I wonder if that was done purposely for the camp factor. This was pure fun, pure ridiculousness, and just an all around good time. It never took itself too seriously, but brought much more than I expected.
