"Porkchop" DVD (director: Eamon Hardiman)

In the spirit (and direct influence of) such classic splatter films as "Friday The 13th","Evil Dead", and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", this micro-indie lacks the drama, tension, and humor of its predecessors.

Take the typical scenario -- a group of careless teens, obsessed with sex and booze, venture to an isolated campground for a night of frivolity, only to meet up with the legendary pig-faced murderer known as "Porkchop". The consequences are as expected. I wanted to enjoy this, but there was really next to nothing interesting nor unique to grasp onto, save for some decent gore and a few breasts. Save your money and avoid this poor imitation. (Independent Entertainment)
