review by
Mike Haberfelner

2016, the day of the referendum about whether the UK is to stay in of leave the European Union, family dinner at the suburban home of the Baker family: Family members are deeply divided about the matter of Brexit, while father Mark (Martin W. Payne) and son Pete (Connor Mellish) are Brexiteers and mum Anne (Janette Evans) detests talking about politics, student daughter Maddie (Jessamie Waldon-Day) is dead-set against leaving, and she has brought two like-minded student friends, Jas (Alexandra Robertshaw) and Mikey (Ryan Carter) with her. And at dinner table the discussion soon escalates as neither side is willing to give any merit to the arguments of the other, but neither side is willing to let the discussion rest. This is only interrupted when the neighbour (Simon Berry) is breaking into the back yard - and he has obviously turned into a pig (literally). And according to news reports, people are turning into pigs all over the country. For father Mark and son Pete it's clear who's to blame - all those who voted for "remain", so soon enough that leads to a situation even tenser than before within the house, and eventually leads to Maddie and their student friends being locked away in the spare room. But whatever it is that's turning people into pigs has long snuck into the house and makes no distinction along political lines ...


In the UK, the Brexit was of course a deeply divisive topic, and thus also an excellent source for satire - and to blend satire with a monster movie, especially one about homicidal pigs is of course a stroke of genius. Now I have to admit, the movie does take a bit of time to set things up and could have been edited a bit more dynamically in the beginning, but once the action starts it's just wall-to-wall fun, with the intentionally silly pig masks only mirroring that, while the film's black-and-white photography's looking great throughout. And very grounded performances keep things real, making this one fun piece of satirical horror.
