Film synopsis

Somewhere deep in the Australian outback there’s a marauding, indestructible creature that can rip a man in half and destroy a homestead in seconds.

This giant freak of nature is nine hundred pounds of tusk and muscle – and it is hell bent on terrorizing the small isolated community of “Gamulla” – a town as violent and primitive as the beast that threatens it.

The astonishing feature film debut of music video maestro Russell

Mulcahy (Highlander), Razorback is a ferociously entertaining, adrenalin pumping thriller that proudly counts Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino among its self-confessed fans!

Boasting stunning cinematography from Oscar® winner Dean Semler (Dances with Wolves), a taut script by horror veteran Everett DeRoche (Patrick), atmospheric music by Iva Davies (Icehouse) and a fearsome creature from effects master Bob McCarron (The Matrix), Razorback is an Ozploitation classic, bloodcurdling to the last squeal.
