A DVD That Will Make You Squeal This August

A DVD That Will Make You Squeal This AugustFor my money we just don’t get enough movies about killer mutant pig people. That will change in August when E1 Entertainment releases Squeal, the terrifying tale of pig-nosed mutants with mutton chops tormenting members of a broken down rock band. Who doesn’t love killer mutant pig people movies?

An indie rock band goes on its first tour and becomes stranded on a country road when their car breaks down after meeting some strange country hicks. They seek help, only to stumble on a genetic science experiment gone terribly wrong. They are captured by mutant half-pig/half-humans and held captive in a barn. The remaining band members attempt breaks-out, but to their demise the mutants have more surprises in store for them. The sun rises on the carnage and sheds light on the horrors of animal testing.

Directed by first-time filmmaker Tony Swansey and starring Kevin Oestenstad, Allison Batty, Stephen Dean, and Joe Burke, Squeal has been making the film festival rounds since 2008 and, from what I gather, garnering decent word of mouth. The rest of us will finally get to see it when Squeal hits DVD on August 27th.

Check out the trailer from the official Squeal website to see the psychopathic swine men in action.

Say, whatever happened to that other killer mutant pig people movie starring Master P? Did that ever get made?

    I caught this at a screening last summer, and I was surprised at how entertaining it was. The redneck angle really didn’t seem that promising, but the film isn’t just recycled TCM. Hard to describe, but it has a weird vibe of its own. The story is smartly handled with some seriously missed up turns. Give this little movie a chance (and make sure you watch through the end of the credits!).

    Im’ In too, not for the killer rednecks in the backwooods part, seen that a billion times, But for the Mutant pig killers part, we don’t get enough of those

    I might watch it just to see representatives of indie band guitar wankers get killed.

    I wonder how many decades it will take for people to get tired of these generic bands. Probably never since the manufactured crap like Justin Bieber just keep on getting made.

    • FireRam

      FireRam was never even into those generic bands so I will not have to grow tired of them. I have no interest IN them.

    Yet another hokey premise involving freaks in the back woods. Nah, I’m not interested.
    “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

    • FireRam

      Yeah, but you said “hockey”. Just for that you should have to watch it!
