The outback town of Gamulla is terrorised by a giant razorback boar. In this clip, Carl Winters (Gregory Harrison) is attacked by the razorback at the Pet Pak factory. He tells Sarah Cameron (Arkie Whiteley) to run for her life.

The moment the audience has been waiting for. Kept in the shadows for most of the duration, the animatronic razorback is unleashed in the final reel. Though the full-sized creature failed to operate as intended, William Anderson’s clever editing and Dean Semler’s stylish photography just about create the impression of a massive beast on the rampage.
