no effects, the real stuff
20 February 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Rozz Williams, I followed the man from his early years until his death (has visited his grave in LA and took my picture). He made such beautiful songs with his band Christian Death, and did had a lot of other projects were fans turned their face away from because it became to weird or became a soundscape. Nevertheless, Rozz artwork was also something special. I do have his book which is nowadays OOP and goes for a lot of money, the same with the DVD of PIG. The short movie were we can see Rozz. On April 1, 1998, Williams hanged himself in his West Hollywood apartment. This was made shortly before that moment with the Dutch director Nico B. who was the partner of Gitane DeMone, a person very close to Rozz who appeared in early Christian Death work and even had a love affair with Rozz.

Rozz scripted the story for PIG about a serial killer killing people on a ritual way in the dessert. No effects were used and it looks rather gruesome and painful, so a friend (James Hollan) of Rozz was able to let permit the torture on his body. The script itself is available with the original DVD on the Cultepics label together with the book you see in this short movie. It was dated two weeks before Rozz his death. That's the reason why the original DVD goes for a lot of money, the DVD which I have. But nowadays there's also a Blu Ray out but without the extra's from the original issue. Still, if you can take some kind of S&M serial killer flick with the act done for real then this is a must see. People who are easily offended stay away from this. If you are a fan of Rozz try to pick up the original issue but if you can't spend the money then pick up this Blu Ray which also contains a sleeve that was banned immediately due the Nazi reference. I was able to catch the one with that reference already high in price nowadays, because a second issue is now available without the Nazi symbolism. There's no original soundtrack on PIG, it should have been made by Rozz and he did wrote down some things but it was never made, reason known....
