“It would make a great double feature with THE WITCH WHO CAME FROM THE SEA.” - Hollie Horror, LETTERBOXD
Lynn Webster (Toni Lawrence) is a mysterious woman with a deadly secret. After arriving in a secluded California town, she takes a job as a waitress for Zambrini (Marc Lawrence), an elderly former circus performer who runs a small cafe, complete with a pen of 12 hungry pigs. Local legend has it that his pigs only eat human flesh and that in order to satisfy their growing appetites, Zambrini has begun to murder drifters. Soon the sheriff begins to get suspicious of the strange goings on at Zambrini's farm and grows closer and closer to discovering the shocking truth of the pigs. Directed by character actor Marc Lawrence and starring his daughter Toni, PIGS is a suspenseful and atmospheric psychological horror film featuring claustrophobic photography and a haunting score by Charles Bernstein (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET). This classic of 1970s independent cinema has been newly restored in its original director's cut for the first time.
