Razorback is a ridiculous, over-the-top horror film about a killer boar on the loose in the Outback. The boar is ever-powerful & can even run through houses, break through car doors, penetrate metal, & can even sense human activity from miles away. This is a dumb movie, written most likely by an idiot, but it LOOKS amazing due to Mulcahy & Semler's incredible efforts. It's bad, but in an interesting way.
You have to give just a little push to this film because the ending is technically missed, because of the muppet unmanageable size and mobility. I know I did, and I can call it a masterpiece with great enthousiasm. From the cinematography, the camera work, the brutality, the idea of pig vs humans (an dvice versa), the unfolding of events, the developing of character. I'm just in awe in front of such an achievement.
An artistic highpoint of the Ozploitation era, this is a gorgeous horror flick. The characters are underdeveloped, and the pig is completely unconvincing, but it still sticks with you because of its competent direction and brilliant handling of imagery. Eerie more than scary, despite all of its flaws, its still worth a look.
If you can believe that a film with as simple a premise and such a reductive title as this is actually one of the most atmospheric, intensely designed and all-out best horror films of the 1980s, then you're in for something special...if you can find it. The ultimate VHS film.
