Razorback Review

Image for Razorback

A crazed pig goes on a killing spree through the Australian outback. When an American journalist is killed her husband arrives to hunt the porcine killer down.


The razorback in question is a bullet-proof killer pig shredding up the locals of an outback town dominated by a sinister kangaroo meat-cannery. Enter Gregory Harrison's eco-warrior and bacon is served...

As you'd expect from a director graduated who from Duran Duran videos, Russell Mulcahy overloads on the strobes, filters and eye-dart edits like they're going out of fashion. Which, er, they have. The pig's pure prop and the acting tinny, but the yuppie-nightmare style is eerie and effective.

The oddball nightmare style is effective but the prop pig and under par acting let the film down.
