What did the poor little piggy ever do to you, Mr. Savini?
Tom Savini is "The Sadist". It clearly says so on the cover image, but just in case you're not entirely convinced yet, there also are the gratuitous opening sequences in which a glass-eyed and sneering Savini savagely kills a little piglet with a pitchfork. Why does he do that? Because Tom Savini is "The Sadist" and that's what sadists do! This man is a total mystery, by the way. As an actor and/or special effects wizard, Savini was involved in some of the greatest horror classics of all time, including most of George A. Romero's masterpieces, so why is he still wasting his time with uninspired, forgettable, insignificant and dreadfully inept amateur horror movies like this one? Are you seriously that bored, Mr. Savini? "The Sadist" is genuinely terrible, with the lack of a story and horridly hectic camerawork as the main defaults. Chubby and badly ageing Tom Savini is supposedly a decorated and highly qualified combat veteran, but he went bonkers and now he's prowling the Connecticut woods. He's targeting a sleaze uncle and his nephew on a bird-hunting trip as well as three dim-witted teenagers on a hiking weekend. It's truly boring, lousily acted and for some reason these low-budget gore flicks all think that it is cool to show a lot of disembowelment. I will always respect and worship Tom Savini for his work on classics like "Dawn of the Dead", "Maniac", "The Burning" and many others, but let's pretend we didn't see this.
