3.0 out of 5 stars Great Australian "when animal attack" film 29 Dec 2010
Format:DVD
Saw it about ten years ago as after rummaging through boxes of VHS movies at a local video store that was shutting down, didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised by the good direction, decent enough script and acting by all. Also had great atmosphere and setting.
I definitely recommend this film for the midnight movie watching set.

There is so many horror movies around, and so many of them are bad, that it is very hard to find something that is really worth watching. Well, this is one of the few that made the list.

The main appeal of this movie is its originality - just think, what can be more terrifying for a human being that being eaten alive? Well, it is being eaten alive by a form of life that we consider mostly harmless, but low and disgusting...

Another big asset is the whole visual aspect of the movie, really well polished by Russel Mulcahy. There is something really unusual and unsettling in the way this movie shows some banal things, like a sunset in the desert or some abandoned farm.

All in all it is a rare original and smart horror movie - if you are into this kind of things, go and get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Jaws On Trotters" 31 May 2011
By Sussman TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
A Cult Classic from 1984, in essence it's like 'Jaws' based in the 'Outback' of Australia. For what I believe to be a good review, please look to 'Paul Ess review', which is a well-rounded review of the film. There are No CGI effects here in this movie. Well worth a look at, the price at just under 3 delivered its worth buying, at time of writing this review. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good horror which could have been a classic 31 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
From its atmospheric start, establishing the loneliness, isolation, and vast beauty of the Australian Outback, director Russell Mulcahy grapples to make sense of the competing images and themes which recur in this potentially excellent horror movie. It's not a bad film, far from it, but you know it could have been so much better.
The wonderful Bill Kerr plays an Outback hunter, Jake Cullen, whose grandchild is carried off by a giant razorback ... a sort of angst-ridden wild boar with attitude and very bad breath. Partly inspired by the dingo and the disappearing baby case, Mulcahy never adequately resolves this aspect, leaving it as background. Instead, he introduces an American investigative journalist and animal rights campaigner, come to Australia to investigate the widespread slaughter of kangaroos for pet food. When she meets a grizzly, if rather coy end, her husband appears trying to track down his errant wife. The animal rights / eco-warrior themes and allusions, like the disappearing grandchild, now become pretty much redundant.
The husband, instead, enters a "Texas Chainsaw" canning factory and befriends, then alienates the crazies who run it. The film now becomes a chase, with hunted turning hunter, and a fresh love interest injected in the form of Arkie Whiteley. The plot gets just a little too cluttered, yet remains under-developed in places, so the tension and dynamic need to be jump-started from time to time.
Mulcahy (who had previously directed some exotic, not to mention surreal pop videos), gives us a hotch-potch of images while failing to adequately sustain plot or build character.

4.0 out of 5 stars Golden Oldy 11 May 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I have been searching for this film now for nearly 2 years. Initially thinking that is should be easy to come by. Boy was i wrong, and little did I know this classic is now a collectors item.
This film is over 20 years old now, yet considering the graphics, story line, and fundermental "Suspense factor" it puts multi million pound films to shame.
In essence its about an oversized Razor Boar in the Australian Outback that causes total Chaos. It starts back in time when a yound baby gets killed whilst it tears through a house. A vengeful grandad then goes on a mission to nail the Boar - But does not succeed and subsequently gets nailed himself.
After many deaths, carnage, explosions, and (I'm not walking in the park alone moments) and an exceptionally good story line, I will be suprised if any like minded film fanatic will be dissapointed. Great music throughout also.
P.s. Do not be put off by how old the film is, I have seen worse graphics in the last 6 months on new releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars From Tusk 'til Dawn 23 Aug 2008
Format:DVD
'Razorback', apart from 'Return of Captain Invincible' and maybe 'Performance', is likely the cultest film ever made. It's credentials are crackling: mad, bad killer pig, desert lunatics, animal rights protesters, camels, abattoirs, negligible special effects, arty direction, wallabies and a delicious ideal of senseless cruelty and insensitivity.
''Jaws' in the outback' just about sums it up, but with notable additions: it has two of the bestest, most grotesque villains ever portrayed on film. Benny and Dicko work at the extremely unpleasant Petpak Cannery, a big, clanking, kangaroo slaughterhouse, around which, much of 'Razorback's action occurs. They enjoy their work FAR too much, live in a cave underneath the plant and insist on 'mystery bags' for their nutritional essentials.
Into their environment bristles Carl Winters in a borrowed old banger, looking for his missing eco-journalist wife, Beth. Benny and Dicko know what happened to her but tell him porkies. He goes 'roo hunting with the rinds and is so enamoured with the proceedings, he vomits on their heads! Yet again, every-one's a critic.

After a WILD trippy walkabout, he begins to realise the ghastly truth - there's a giant pig making salami out of the locals. From there on it's a battle between the (happily vicious) titular giant gammon and the small band of good apples, loins girded and resolute; Carl, Jake Cullen, a local ham-hammerer who's grandson was smoked by the beast, and research scientist Sarah(played by lovely, died-MUCH-too-early, Arkie Whitely)- each with a very different point to prove.
