Piggy - Trailer
Director Kieron HawkesYear 2012Genre(s) Horror, Suspense
Introverted but polite young man Joe is overcome with grief after beloved brother John is murdered by a violent gang following a heated disagreement in the local pub. The bereavement incites the arrival of one of John's old friends, Piggy, at his brother's doorstep.
Piggy offers to help Joe by aiding him to seek revenge on the gang one by one. As their relationship develops, Joe quickly becomes distressed by the degree of bloody violence and torture he witnesses (and indeed executes) and he begins to question Piggy's real intentions and identity.
Not for the faint hearted, Piggy presents a catastrophic climax following the transformation of character in Joe and the eerie significance of Piggy's snout mask.
From the director of Turnout (2011), this London based thriller is set to captivate cine audiences with the scarily convincing performances of stars Paul Anderson as Piggy (The Firm), Martin Compston as Joe (The Disappearance of Alice Creed) and Neil Maskell as John (The Football Factory). Piggy is director Kieron Hawkes' third dramatic film in his five year career and will be released on May 4th 2012.
