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 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 »
Even though the whole backwoods hillbilly horror thing has been done to death over the years, I never tire of toothless inbreds attacking any city-folk dumb enough to tray onto their turf; throw in a commune of marijuana farming, free loving hippies with a flesh-eating 3000lb mutant pig in their backyard and I'm in hog heaven!
Jason X director James Isaac makes amends for his god-awful 2006 werewolf flick Skinwalkers by giving us one of the most enjoyable, bloody and fun films of recent years. Pig Hunt might start in familiar territory, with its typically clichéd group of weekend warrior blokes (and token babe) wishing they had stayed at home after they upset the local rednecks, but it eventually carves its own identity with the introduction of its drug dealing love cult and their prodigious porker. At this point, all logic flies out the window, umpteen hot women get their breasts out, and people start disappearing down the gullet of the biggest boar since Russell Mulcahy's Razorbackand if that ain't quality entertainment, then I don't know what is!
7.5 out of 10, rounded up to 8 for IMDb.
