Australian Revelations – Razorback

The Revelation Film Festival and Breaking Banter proudly present a celebration of film - past, present and future - through a program of monthly screenings; Australian Revelations. It’s almost Halloween so it’s time for your annual dose of horror!

Quite simply one of the most legendary of Australian cult films, Razorback was one of the great films to come out of the “Ozploitation” period immortalised in Mark Hartley’s epic documentary Not Quite Hollywood.

Beth is a journalist on the hunt for a story about animal treatment in the deep, dark outback but a terrible accident puts paid to her career as a giant boar is on the loose terrorising all and sundry. The problem with this animal – aside from its inordinate size – is that other wild pigs come under its control…as if wild pigs weren’t wild enough!

Enter Beth’s husband Carl (played by Gregory Harrison) looking for his wife and from there we encounter what is something of a landlocked Jaws meets Wake in Fright.

“A true delight for any horror film fancier who enjoys the prospect of man tested by a deadly and inscrutable force of nature” LA Times
