Firstly, Pig is a technical marvel – barring the last few minutes, the rest of the movie is filmed like it’s one continuous take. Personally, don’t think this is the case, but it still required fantastic coordination with the actors and does have really long single takes anyway.
The story is a straightforward torture flick. A bloodied woman has escaped from her tormentor and stumbles down a highway. Soon, the tormentor catches up with her and proceeds to butcher her. You soon discover there are other live victims littered around his farm, in the middle of nowhere. He appears to be building a sort of family commune and refers to himself as Daddy while his victims are dressed similarly, like in uniform. These include a pregnant woman he affectionately refers to as ‘retard’, who appears to have been broken and has lost her mind. The others are in different stages of being ‘broken’ – an aspect he cheerily sings about while working on them.
There is a minor twist ending in the sense, he is not what you’ve probably slotted him to be.
