It has felt like a long old wait for Chris Sun’s Boar, which premiered at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival in April. While UK and US audiences will just have to remain patient for a while longer, the Aussie creature feature hits cinemas in its home country on June 17th, as announced by this tasty new poster.
Boar is director Sun’s first feature since 2014’s Charlie’s Farm. It stars horror heroes John Jarratt (Wolf Creek) and Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil’s Rejects), the latter appearing in a rare nice-guy role. Also starring are Melissa Tkautz, Simone Buchanan and Charlie’s Farm’s Nathan Jones.
“Lurking within this picturesque setting is a dark and terrifying threat – a beast of staggering size with an uncontrollable desire for blood and destruction. Driven by its insatiable appetite for carnage, it defends its territory with brutal force and savagely takes on any who get in its way.”
While comparisons to Ozploitation classic Razorback seem inevitable, Boar features a far bigger boar and promises a lot more splatter, as teased in the trailer we saw back in March. Rest assured, as soon as we hear of worldwide release dates, we’ll let you know.
