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 ...

Goofs

At one point, John and Brooks are looking at tracks, and he tells her they are either horse or cow tracks. However, anyone who grew up in the country would know that you can't make that mistake: horses have a one-toed hoof while cows' hooves are two-toed, also knows as a split hoof, divided hoof, and cloven hoof.

Pig Hunt was hilarious, scary.
10 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

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.
