After premiering at Sundance last year, the horror film Piggy (read Meagan’s review) is now headed home from Magnet Releasing, recently dated for release on October 14, 2022.
Watch Magnet’s official Piggy trailer below, which promises a psychological slasher that’s set to slice deep into serious societal issues including fatphobia and bullying.
In the Spanish horror film from writer/director Carlota Pereda…
“With the summer sun beating down on her rural Spanish town, Sara hides away in her parent’s butcher shop. A teenager whose excess weight makes her the target of incessant bullying, she flees a clique of capricious girls who torment her at the town pool, only to stumble upon them being brutally kidnapped by a stranger, who drives off with them in his van.
“When the police begin asking questions, Sara keeps quiet. Intrigued by the stranger — an interest that’s mutual — she’s torn between revealing the truth and protecting the man who saved her.”
Laura Galán stars in Piggy.
Meagan wrote in her Sundance review, “Piggy gives viewers a lot to chew on in this intimate morality tale carried by Galán’s haunting performance. Every bit of Sara’s helplessness, fear, anguish, rage, and even attraction is tangible. Pereda casts an unflinching eye on Sara, making it feel even more personal through the aspect ratio and restraint in specific types of violence.
“That restraint makes Piggy more horror adjacent than outright horror, but its impact is keenly felt all the same,” Meagan’s review continues.
