Long Pigs (2007) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Long Pigs is a “documentary” by two desperate young filmmakers who stumble upon the ultimate Anthony McAllister, who agrees to let them document every aspect of his horrifically violent lifestyle. Initially terrified, the filmmakers get to know Anthony as a person, and even begin to identify with the ecological and philosophical justifications for his cannibalistic lifestyle. It’s only when they investigate further that the filmmakers begin to doubt Anthony’s accounts of his past. Tensions noticeably rise as the filmmakers confront Anthony about his conflicting stories and ever-changing philosophies. As the film reaches its conclusion, Anthony begins to become uncomfortably aware of the how much of his life he has revealed to the filmmakers. In the final interview with Anthony, a deadly confrontation erupts and all that remains is a broken camera…and this footage.
