Chris Sun's swine-based creature feature Boar was one of the hits of Frightfest 2018 and now is getting a release through the festival's own label, Frightfest Presents

Director Chris Sun, the writer-director of the horror comedy Charlie’s Farm, has assembled an awesome cast of genre film legends - Bill Moseley, who played Chop-Top in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2; the superb John Jarratt from the Wolf Creek films; Roger Ward and Steve Bisley, the cops from Ozploitation classic Mad Max; and the formidable former WWF star Nathan Jones, who played Rictus Erectus from Mad Max: Fury Road, who here gets to indulge in some no-nonsense boar-wrestling, as well as lip-synching to Vanilla Ice. Thrown into this macho mix are three Sheilas - erm, that is, women - including Simone Buchanan from Patrick: Evil Awakens - who prove more than a match for the men, and, for that matter, the killer pig.

Sun mixes a foul-mouthed, funny script with a superbly realised monster, stomach-turning gore effects, and a splendid amount of jump-out-of-your-seat boar attacks. A gritty and gruesome creature feature with a knockout cast, this is a Razorback for the 21st century, continuing the tradition of top-notch Aussie monster movies like Black Sheep and The Reef.

In the harsh, yet beautiful Australian outback lives a beast, an animal of staggering size, with a ruthless, driving need for blood and destruction. It cares for none, defends its territory with brutal force, and kills with a raw, animalistic savagery unlike any have seen before.

Believed nothing more than a myth, a legend brought to life by a drunken hunter, the beast ventures closer to civilization. When the bodies of two of its most recent victims are discovered, it is up to a locals, and an out-of-town family caught in the carnage, to halt the creature in its tracks.

Frightfest Presents will release Boar on DVD and Digital HD on 25th February 2019.
