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.

A quote from Geroge Orwell's 'Animal Farm', "The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.", just before the end credits. See more »
Hilarious and scary, disturbing and gruesome, Pig Hunt is a wonderful escapade through the wilds of Northern California culture. You'll be rooting to see at least one of the characters get it before the end and chances are you won't be disappointed. (I particularly enjoyed the beheading of a very minor character.) The giant hog is scary, realistic and apparently insatiably hungry.
Joe Lucas has a small role done to perfection. Les Claypool is exhilarating as a crazed man of God. Brion Bain properly menacing as the cult-leading hippie/nut job.
Don't miss this one.
