Rupert Pupkin has been posting many other film fan's favorite underrated horror movies. Some of the titles brought me back to a time when I was around 13-14 and my friends and I would rent crappy horror VHS tapes from the video store. There are 5 Wednesdays this October, and every Wednesday I'm going to post musings on a different horror movie. These are by no means great movies, in fact, all of them are pretty terrible, but they stick with me for one reason or another.
*This movie wasn't called 'Daddy's Deadly Darling' when I watched it. It was called 'Pigs." I'm still unsure which title is more widely used nowadays.
*For a long time, I swear no one believed me when I told them this movie existing. (Probably because of the title change) I always referred to it as 'Pigs' and I was pretty thrown off by the thought of little Wilburs and Porkys eating people.
*When I eventually came across this movie again when I was older, I realized there was a ton of sexual references that went way over my head. The entire plot is basically about a woman escaped her sexually abusive father. I don't know how I missed all of that.
*I don't know if I would call Pigs "campy," I'd surely call it "gross." It's definitely not something I'd ever watch again out of curiosity, but the two times I did watch it stay with me well enough.
Have you seen Pigs? What did you think?
