Plot synopsis:
Inspired by the terrifying story of Robert Willy Pickton, whose horrific crimes shocked the world. With his herculean hog Balthazar, by his side, Willy and his menagerie of colourful cohorts terrorise Vancouver’s seedy downtown until his arrest, which uncovered a horrific series of brutal Canadian murders…


Pig Killer retraces the horror sown by the murderer in the past, relying on his instability and the terror instilled in the victims, managing to capture the essence of decay and death rooted in his mind […] In addition to standing out for a remarkable direction and screenplay, Pig Killer enjoys excellent photography which adds further value.” Dark Veins [translated from Italian]


Pig Killer is a film that isn’t likely to leave anyone cold, and not so much for its gore scenes but for its cynical, almost nihilistic undercurrents that really and successfully mirror its leads lack of compassion. But that’s not to say the film is just a gaze into the abyss, as it actually tells its story in a multi-layered way that really gives depth to the central characters and creates a rich environment for them.” Search My Trash

Pig Killer will have its world premiere at the Sydney Underground Film Festival on September 9, 2022.
