PIG

A self-conscious psychopath struggles with his body image while terrorizing a group of unsuspecting campers.

Director’s Statement

What struck me was how smart, simple, and funny the conceit behind the story was — that psychopaths are just like the rest of us. They put on their blood-stained jumpsuits one leg at a time. They pay rent on their torture rooms, and have car payments for their windowless vans. They guzzle Häagen Dazs and ugly cry while watching This is Us.

Making this film was all about misdirecting audience expectations. Embracing our favorite slasher movie cliches and tropes, before turning them on their heads with a surprising point of view twist. Taking characters you think you know and showcasing them in a fresh, unexpected new light.

PIG is a comedy wearing horror’s clothes, with a unique blend of scares and laughs. It’s a peek behind the curtain of what might really be at the core of a maniacal killer. It’s a story about accepting yourself for who you are, inside and out, and leaning on the people close to you when times get tough — even if those people are total psychos.
