In my town, there were urban legends of the Green Man — which were true, he was burned by either a fallen power line or lightning strike and his face was destroyed — and every town has similar tales. This movie has the Pigman, which a couple soon discovers is an absoutely true and very deadly story.
This movie seems engineered for optimum murderdrone, but I’m not sure that’s a thing you can just make up. It’s like trying to give yourself your own nickname. But the slow motion snow-based murders that are stuttered and cross-cut and smashed together and the multiple storylines all happening at once are all going to try.
That said, Holland Road in Angola, NYis really called Pigman Road because of an urban legend. Turns out that there may have been — but probably wasn’t — a deranged butcher that would put pigs’ heads on stakes outside his shop before one time that he shot a man and hung him outside for cars driving past to see. There was also a major train accident in the 1860s.
Director and writer Emir Skalonj is behind this one. There are some ideas at play here, the killer looks pretty good and it has a budget of what you spent on Christmas gifts this year. You can learn more on the official Facebook page.
