When a gigantic razorback pig steals and eats a baby in a remote outback town, no one quite believes that an animal would do such a thing, and the child’s grandfather Jake Cullen (Bill Kerr) is charged with the child’s death.

Enter investigative reporter Beth Winters (Judy Morris). What initially appears to be a small town with some very strange characters turns out to be much worse. There is a pack of wild pigs on the loose, and one giant razorback in particular is out for blood.

‘Has a degree of menacing atmosphere that is virtually unknown to the giant man-eating animal genre’ – Alternate Ending
