“Yeah, you know, always on a full moon, the pigs get hungry. … They got used to eating human flesh. … You know the first time it happened was an accident. They got loose in the field. There was a drunk. He was asleep. Yeah, he was asleep.” Yeah. That’s right. An accident. It was all an accident. Join your faithful Grue Crew – Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr – as they check out Pigs (1973), a bit of a vanity project, written and directed by Marc Lawrence for his daughter, Toni.

What film would you rather see? Pigs or Daddy’s Deadly Darling? Yeah, it’s a toss-up. Thankfully, they’re the same film. Woot! Daddy’s deadly darling is a bit mad, you see. She whacks anyone she dislikes and then feeds them to the pigs. Or,… are they turned into pigs? Nah, just old-fashioned, psychotic murder and body disposal here. Check out what the Grue-Crew thinks of this multi-titled, muti-released, and multi-edited 70s flick!
At the time of this writing, Pigs is available to stream from the Classic Horror Movie Channel, PLEX, Cultpix, and Amazon (PPV). A Blu-ray disc of Pigs is available from Vinegar Syndrome.
