This review is from: Razorback  [DVD] (DVD)
In the Australian outback, an old man is blamed for death of his grandson. Nobody will believe his story about a wild boar the size of a white rhino. But a few years later it strikes again, this time killing a woman reporter who has come from America to do a report on animal cruelty. Her husband soon shows up, finds the grandfather (brilliantly played by Bill Kerr, who should be familiar to fans of Galton & Simpson's comedy) has become an Ahab-like figure determined to find the razorback and avenge his grandson's death.
This is an intelligent, well-made and gripping film from the excellently atmospheric outback to the extraordinary nightmare sequences to the little touches of social satire. The suspense has you on the edge of your seat and the razorback itself is a terrifying monster. Who needs Jaws when you can have Gnaws?
