Pigs (2005) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Lynn loved her daddy very much, but her love could not stop him from raping her and it couldn’t keep her from plunging a knife in to his back. Committed to an insane asylum for the criminally insane, Lynn persists in the delusion that her father is not only still alive, but wants her to come home. When Lynn’s sensuous nurse indulges in an illicit affair, Lynn steals her uniform and her keys, escaping in the nurses car. The story then shifts to Zambini, an old high-wire circus performer who was seriously injured in a fall. Thought dead, he awakened in the morgue and has been affected by the incident ever since. Zambini owns a rural café among the oil fields and is thought by his old lady neighbor to have murdered his young waitresses and fed their bodies to his pigs. Under the cover of darkness we see Zambini carry a corpse to his barn where, after apologizing to the cadaver, he feeds it to his squealing voracious pigs. The following morning, Lynn arrives and applies for a job in the café. Although Zambini senses she is hiding from someone, he feels sorry for her and gives her a job and a shabby room in which to sleep. What follows is a study in horror as the old man gradually learns Lynn’s story and tries to protect her from the law. A terrifying climax is topped by a chilling Hitchcockian twist.
Written, directed and starring Hollywood legend Marc Lawrence (From Dusk Till Dawn, The Big Easy), PIGS is the epic 70’s horror film that paved the way for films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Last House on the Left!
