Well-done satire homage to classic low budget 80s slasher cinema
4 December 2011 | by ritualistic-230-172500See all my reviews

Porkchop from Independent Entertainment and Alternative Cinema is a well-done satire homage to classic low budget 80s slasher cinema. Directed and produced by Eamon Hardiman, a native of Charleston, West Virginia, a location not to far from The Liberal Dead's main headquarters in eastern Kentucky. The film revolves around a group of six young campers and a robot that retreat into the backwoods of West Virginia for a weekend of booze, drugs, and wild sex inside the abandoned Camp Wood. Soon, a weekend of debauchery turns into a fight for survival when the campers are hunted by a chainsaw-wielding psychopath in a pig mask looking to spill the blood of all those who roam into his territory. The film stars Ruby LaRocca, who readers may remember from Evan Makrogiannis' The Super, Erin Russ (Devil Sister), Ford Austin (Dahmer Vs. Gacy) and Brian Gunnoe. Porkchop will be hitting DVD on December 6th and digital markets.

A lot of filmmakers these days try to recreate the look and feel of classic grind house and 80s era film, but often fall short of really capturing the true look and feel. That is not the case with Porkchop; this film pays very close attention to every minute detail when it comes to creating an authentic low budget 80s horror experience. From a opening featuring an 80s thrash metal theme song that shares the title of the film, to the clever use of 80s products and pop culture references, it is hard to believe this is not some lost film that has been discovered from the era. There is two scenes in particular that really made me take notice of this, both featuring a duo of backwoods store clerks, one of whom is reading an issue of the Alf comic at one point and later in the film an actual classic issue of Fangoria Magazine from the proper era.

I found myself constantly laughing during my viewing and remembering all the hours I spent watching films of this nature as a kid. The film does a great job at creating a high level of nostalgia for old-school horror fans that grew up with horrible acting and micro budget special effects. This is most definitely the perfect type of movie to watch with a group of friends while munching out and cracking wise. One of my favorite aspects of the film is the fact it does not take it self to serious, this is where many attempts to recreate the feeling of a classic 80s slasher start to fail, people seem to forget that a lot of 80s horror was very campy in nature and notorious for poking fun at itself. With that said keep in mind that Porkchop features one of the best robot kill scenes known to man.

My only complaint with this flick is it really needed more gore; this is the only factor that held it back from being the perfect recreation of the genre and era. While there are some fairly gory kills, it really could have been amped up and in my opinion should have been. The gorier kills do all look good considering the filmmaker's dedication in keeping things legitimately 80s feeling. There is one scene, towards the very end of the film involving a foot stomp that I must admit put a smile across my sick twisted face. However, other than this minor complaint, I really had a blast watching Porkchop in the wee hours of the morning as if I was a mere boy sneaking up to watch horror films on HBO once again.

If you want to take a trip back to the days of when Wizard Video, Paragon, and Super Video filled your local mom and pop video store shelves with over sized VHS boxes, I highly recommend picking up a copy of Porkchop then sitting down with some friends for a night of campy fun. - The Liberal Dead
