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 ...

A bunch of multicultural guys and a girl go on a trip to the country. They go on a pig hunt as they are military and one of them is a hunter. Once in the country they run into the neighbors. They are the stereotypical movie hillbillies. Two of them go along for the pig hunt. These people don't go along with each other at all, making for a very obnoxious, long and tedious 1:15 of the movie. The beginning of the movie hints at a large hog that eats horses. And there are rumors of a 3000 pound one roaming the country. Earlier in the movie the gang also run into some weird black guru and a couple of his drugged out hippie devotees. The last part of the movie gets entertaining as the remaining guys from the gang escape the violent hillbillies and end up at the cult's house and meet the giant boar as well as some sexy girls.
There is a troubling trend in horror movies to present our cast as nothing but bunch of annoying, bickering idiots, insulting and threatening each other for hours. I don't know who thinks that's entertaining. It's not. It's a pain. This movie for the most part follows that recipe but with an unattractive cast. There is a bit of violence and gore. But if you're into animal death, torture, and gore, then this movie is for you as the camera loves to linger on animal carcasses.
I give this movie 3 stars for the 7 or so topless girls bathing. Nothing else is worth watching here.
