Director: Russell Mulcahy
“Razorback is no quickie: it's an extremely handsome production, beautifully shot by Dean Semler.” - Variety
In a storyline ripped straight from the headlines, a giant boar goes on a killing spree in the outback, apparently claiming an animal rights activist as a victim. Her husband travels from America to uncover the mystery of her death, unaware that the killer might be a monstrous aberration.
Babe turned feral, Razorback is Australia's legendary instalment in the ‘nature goes nuts' horror genre, directed by music video stalwart Russell Mulcahy (Highlander). The weird and desolate landscape that acts as backdrop to the brutality adds yet another layer to this infamous, rarely screened nugget.
