Plot – Spoilers:
Zack has recently dropped out of school. He spends his days wandering on his skateboard, trying to stay away from home and his mother’s abusive boyfriend Wayne. But when Wayne gives him an ultimatum that he can return home only with 50 bucks, even if it means pimping himself out, Zack is forced to make the shittier outdoors his temp home. The streets introduce him to all sorts of unsavory characters whom he handles with a trademark deadpan look.

Pig Pen lulls you into expecting a meandering jumble from it, but instead surprises by springing some nice gore-action every now and then.

YYEEEESSSS! THANK U SO MUCH ADMINS!! Humbling u actually listen to requests;) So I had recommended this movie roughly two months ago for this excellent site, because I thought it’d be a *perfect* fit. I’ve owned the Blu Ray for a while now, viewed it multiple times, but feel it’s a crime how few ppl have seen/heard of this film, hence why I recommend it. Deserves to be seen. The degree of nihilism and pure grit this movie has astounds me, gut-punch status. U think watching the first few minutes that the initial indie low-budget feel will lead to a… Read more »

Good lord. I’m tempted to use words like “Art” and “Acting” to describe this truly horrific film. All the actors were great, but Vito Trigo as Wayne offered a terrifying portrait of a man wrecked by abuse and so full of pain and that his only course is to ritualistically deliver pain unto others. It’s an easy roll to overact and turn into a cliche bad guy but Vito lets real evil shine through the banal face of an abusive asshole boyfriend. I’m reminded of Frank in Lynch’s Blue Velvet. Frank’s control of others springs from pure hate and self… Read more »

Very glad you liked it! Like I said above, this one deserves to be seen, much moreso than others. It’s films like this in the ‘effed’ up category that prove there can still be perfect examples of the genre on rare occasions, imo. I too agree that Vito Trigo was epic as the role of Wayne in this film, a tour-de-force of an actor, so much so that I’m making it a point to see the other films he’s in as well. Since u enjoyed this film, I’m pretty damn sure you’ll like this directors other film, titled 7th Day.… Read more »

Not really worth it. Only good thing was the gore. Other than that it’s a bit slow

Damn, this one will stick with me for a while I think. Although it’s filled with amateurish technical problems, terrible acting and a few rough edges in the storytelling here and there – not to mention an ending that just makes you roll your eyes – it’s an overall surprisingly enjoyable experience if you’re looking for a grimy, atmospheric and brutal film. A bit of polish here and there and this could have been a proper good film, but it’s nothing that makes it unwatchable or a waste of time.

What a brutal and gritty film. Great performance by the boyfriend, he just exudes evil. The ending was not what I was expecting. Overall, a great movie not easily forgotten. Cheers EUM.
