Pig Death Machine

United States | 2013 | Jon Moritsugu

Pig Death Machine

The first feature film in a more than a decade from underground cinema icon Jon Moritsugu (Scumrock, Mod Fuck Explosion, Hippy Porn) is another lo-fi aberration. Shot in garish colors on cheap digital video, Moritsugu’s new movie tells of a shipment of tainted pork that turns a brainless hottie into a genius and allows a buxom botanist to start communicating with her plants. “Anyone who longs for the old, weird films of John Waters or the psychotronic freak-outs of New York's Cinema of Transgression school should be able to get their fix from Pig Death Machine. –The L.A. Times. “Overflowing with eye-popping production design, eardrum-destroying rock 'n' roll, gross-outs aplenty and deadpan one-liners you'll be quoting for weeks.” –The Wall St. Journal.
