For 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?
