Verdict on Pig Killer
Pig Killer is a horror thriller following a serial killer’s incredibly dark motives and actions. It shows him picking up and torturing women. As we get close to his latest victim and how he looks to dispose of them.
This ends up being another movie showing the despicable actions of a serial killer. It doesn’t hold back with how deprived it makes everything, which often leads to uncomfortable watching. This is a lot more graphic than you might be prepared for. However, the overall length of the movie is the biggest problem, a nearly 2 hour movie that uses that time only to extend certain tortuous sequences.
Final Thoughts –Pig Killer is a long uncomfortable and disturbing movie.
