This Ain't Porky Pig!
on August 9, 2013
Razor Back" 4 Stars = Classic
A rhino sized wild boar terrorizes a group of opal hunters in the outback. An American arrives to find out what happened to his missing wife. He encounters hostile resistance from the locals, & help from a beautiful woman.
"Razorback" is filled with lonely beautifully surrealistic cinematography, that is also creepy enough to get under your skin. Dean Semler ("Mad Max cinematogher) gets the right focus on a eerie landscape, that is it in it's self, as foreboding as the killer boar. Russell Mulcahy ("Highlander") directs with an eye towards the macabre, making this film a taut thriller, that has a snout full of dread & suspense. He can even make Kangaroos, eerie! He knows how to pull all the right switches here, & gives you bumps, grinds, & sharp turns of terror! The script, editing, & acting, are also top notch for this kind of film, which is one of the best nature gone awry films you've never seen. Finally the boar it's self. A hairy, tusked mountain of destruction. This pig is pissed off, & is done very convincingly, as you just get to see glimpses of it through the first two thirds of the film, just enough to wet your horror loving heart, waiting to see more!
An obscure Australian treasure, & if you like pork, this film is smoking hot horror, right off the Australian outback BBQ!
