Christopher Roth is a crime/horror author who is going through a creative crisis. He's been writing about the same for 20 years. He's ready for a change and wants to write about more romantic things. His publisher sends him and his wife on vacation so he can get back to what he knows best. One thing that troubles Roth the most is the line between imagination and reality.

The Roths go to a small town in Italy separated from others and without phone signal. They take a walk through the woods and find themselves in the middle of boar hunt. That allows them to meet some of the locals. One of them is particular friendlu, he also has a creepy daughter.

But there's also a killer on the loose in the area, known as the boar. He likes to place his naked victims in some artistic poses. He contacts Roth, who is admired by everyone in town.

Finally Roth finds himself in the spot of the victim and meets the killer. The identity of the killer is somewhat of a surprise and he ends up explaining himself and his motivations.

Not a whole lot happens during the first hour of Christopher Roth. During the final 30 minutes things get more violent and bloody. The main weakness of this movie is the pace. It's all sooo slow. The second weakness is the darkness of the picture and how the violence is filmed. It's hard to tell what is going on. The story I guess is overall alright. The movie could have used an intro kill, several more kills throughout the movie. Perhaps an intro showing some of the relevant background of the killer because in a way he comes out of nowhere. There is plenty of full frontal male nudity for some reason and a bit of female nudity. This movie could have been so much better. It has a budget, technical skill to some extent, decent acting, but it needed more story, a quicker pace and a more competent director.
