Quite simply one of the most legendary of Australian cult films, Razorback was one of the great films to come out of the “Ozploitation” period immortalised in Mark Hartley’s epic documentary Not Quite Hollywood.

Beth is a journalist on the hunt for a story about animal treatment in the deep, dark outback but a terrible accident puts paid to her career as a giant boar is on the loose terrorising all and sundry. The problem with this animal – aside from its inordinate size – is that other wild pigs come under its control…as if wild pigs weren’t wild enough!

Enter Beth’s husband Carl (played by Gregory Harrison) looking for his wife and from there we encounter what is something of a landlocked Jawsmeets Wake in Fright.

This classic of sorts only ever gets better with age and is always surprising at it's high-concept production value and guts and glory approach. Razorback is one of thos Australian films which you simply have to have seen.

"A true delight for any horror film fancier who enjoys the prospect of man tested by a deadly and inscrutable force of nature" LA Times
