Pigs, however, isn't entertaining. Unlike some of the better Troma films (such as The Toxic Avenger & Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD), Pigs isn't trashy or glossy fun. Instead, it's dark and broody. The main selling point, the pigs, are barely featured (most of their screen time comes from close-ups). Instead, you get a drab plot about an abused woman , Lynn Hart (Toni Lawrence) snapping and killing men, with her boss, Zambrini (Marc Lawrence) taking advantage of this and feeding the dead corpses to his pigs (who crave on human flesh).
There's no reason to drag this out into a longwinded review. Pigs is boring. There's nothing interesting about it. The plot's bland, the acting's terrible, the directing is horrendous, the editing is dreadful (many times cuts are used twice, which I though was the DVD skipping, but the sound was still intact) and the pigs are nowhere to be seen. Pigs is a boring film, plain and simple.
This film is pretty bad; many scenes just don't make sense and some of them seem to come out of nowhere. On the plus side, a lot of the dopey characters are fun to watch (especially Zambrini), and the movie has a bizarre, dreamy (and sometimes nightmarish) quality throughout. The scene where Toni Lawrence hears loud pig squeals and then runs screaming through a field for what seems like an eternity is probably the best example of the weird, out-of-nowhere sequences that continuously crop up. Unprofessional filmaking at its best!
