    The best Australian horror movie about a giant killer pig you'll ever see. But seriously, this is much better than it should be. It's stylishly shot and energetically directed, with some great '80s synth soundtrack action to boot. Ignore the crazy plot synopsis, take a chance and have fun... 9 years ago

    Razorback is an Australian horror flick about a preposterously monstrous boar terrorizing a rural community in the Outback. It should be terrible, but it somehow rises above its genre conventions, hicksploitation grotesques, and somewhat disjointed plot by looking simply GORGEOUS. From the get-go, the movie amazes with its surreal landscapes (Australia is really the on-screen MVP), atmospherics, and play of light and shadow. Just enough of the monster is shown to keep its malevolence mysterious, and there's a trippy sequence in the desert. Looking at this, it tells me there's really no excuse for B-movies to look as flat or dingy as they so often do. All I ask from such fare is that they show me something new. And Razorback definitely did that, despite its plots inability to completely avoid cliché. 2 years 1 month ago
