Product Description

The owner of a roadside diner and his new helper kill people and feed them to pigs.

Amazon.com

Let's face it, Pigs probably isn't the most convincing of titles for a horror film. Pigs generally don't provoke a sense of terror one might expect by, say, a colony of bats or a pack of wild dogs. However, this 1972 "playing at a drive-in near you" film had very little to do with pigs, and in fact was originally released under the more evocative title Daddy's Deadly Darling. Pigs has several things going for it; first and foremost, originality. The story involves young, beautiful but emotionally damaged Lynn Webster (Toni Lawrence) who suffers from extreme bipolar dementia (when the excruciating "la la la" song is queued, audiences know Lynn's entering psychotic territory). Running away from the past, Lynn stumbles upon a secluded roadside diner and charms her way into a job working for the owner Zambrini, (film veteran Marc Lawrence), a true backwoods eccentric with an unusual relationship with his herd of ceaselessly squealing pigs. Zambrini and Lynn become fast friends and unknowingly share a common bond: complete insanity. He feeds unearthed corpses to his bovine pals who go hog wild for human flesh while she kills anyone that reminds her of a terrible past trauma. Things get complicated when neighbors and the law start snooping around. Sure, there are over-the-top performances, unexplained sub-plots, and a barely there budget, but there's also loads of wonderful dark gritty atmosphere and enough plain weirdness to make it all interesting. For those that like plenty of lard in their slop, Pigs serves it up just fine. --Matt Wold
