What they say: Get ready for some serious partying, mayhem and gore ’80s style in this deranged satire and celebration of classic slasher cinema! A group of young campers head into the wilderness for a weekend of sex, booze and silliness at an abandoned summer camp – only to be picked off one by one by a blood-thirsty, chainsaw-wielding psychopath wearing a pig’s head mask. Who will survive? The cheerleader? The slut? The nerd and his anatomically correct talking robot? Loaded with boobs, blood and ’80s synth-pop, PORKCHOP reminds us it’s still not safe to go back in the woods.
What I say: As you know, here at About Heroes we are huge fans of classic horror and not-so-classic horror. Porkchop definitely falls into the latter category. I mean it tries real hard, and its heart is in the right place, but this film is so silly and dumb, you just can’t muster up any excitement about it.
It’s really standard stuff. Kids go to woods, kids show tits, kids do stupid things, kids get killed, leave opening for sequel. There are a couple of really cool kills though, like when the cheerleader gets fucked with a chainsaw. And the nerd makes a smart ass robot that screws the girl he likes. There were a few laughs, and other than the before mentioned chainsaw fucking, the effects were nothing to write home about. Oh, and if you’re going to go the pig mask route, at least TRY to best Motel Hell.
It’s definitely good for a watch, but I don’t know that I would return to it any time soon.
Picture quality is very jerky in several scenes. I’m not sure why that is, but it does get annoying. Sound is fine, if unimpressive.
