While Pig is more an experiment in art and film-making it doesn't take away from the fact that it is still a fine example of a genre film. Pig takes place in the sweltering desert and really has no drawn out plot. More just a desert maniac murdering people but cmon do you really need more than that. It follows in the foot steps of former desert dwellers like The Hills Have Eyes on up to the more recent Wolf Creek and The Devil's Rejects. Pig isn't a movie I'd recommend to the casual movie goer that's used to the quick cuts and gross amounts of CGI considering that the whole movie is one complete shot with no edits. It could be quiet trying for someone who's not used to long extended shots. Pig makes for an interesting watch to see just how the whole thing will play out and it does a pretty decent job. My only real complaint is the lack of gore for this type of movie but given the fact that it was shot in one take it makes it a bit more understandable that there wasn't more. I suggest if your a big horror fan or have a strong interest in film-making then I say you should seek Pig out.
