It goes without saying that Razorback is the greatest monstrous-pig-on-a-rampage film of all time — but what kicks Russell “Highlander” Mulcahy’s 1984 film into highly special territory is its deluge of weird and wonderful artistic flourishes. Not content to sit back on his laurels and simply deliver an Aussie Jaws rip-off, Mulcahy imbues this simple man-vs.-nature premise with the same sort of hallucinatory glee he also employed to great effect in Duran Duran’s “Hungry Like The Wolf” and “Union of the Snake” videos, Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” video, and too many others to mention here. Add to that his natural Australian tendency to go gonzo with the violence and the gore, and you’ve got yourself one wild boar of a good time. Razorback is very rarely every screened theatrically, so don’t miss your chance to see this in gluttonous, glorious 35mm!
Dir. Russell Mulcahy, 1984, 35mm, 95 min.
