This time it’s no dingo that ate the baby… it’s a giant pig with terrifying tusks!! When his reporter wife goes missing in miles-from-nowhere Australia, our American milquetoast “hero” takes a trip to Terrible Town to find out what happened, and gets more than the usual cold shoulder from the loony locals. Teaming up with a bat-shit brother duo and a no-nonsense naturalist lass, the hunt for horror begins! Surreal scenery straight out of a Dali, violence and vengeance veering into the Unknown, and a scene-chomping monster of mythic proportions; it’s like JAWS on acid!!! From the director of the Buggles’ “Video Killed The Radio Star,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Gypsy,” Duran Duran’s “Rio,” a ton of Elton John videos, the first two HIGHLANDER films and THE SCORPION KING: RISE OF A WARRIOR – Russell Mulcahy! Written for the screen – or screeeaaam – by Aussie horror-hero Everett De Roche! This July – sink your teeth into RAZORBACK!!!
Part of Nitehawk’s THE DEUCE signature series.
