One of the most oddball outings to ever grace the projector of a 42nd Street movie theatre (and that’s really saying something!). Helmed by erstwhile character actor extraordinaire Marc Lawrence, who also stars, writes and produces, PIGS tells of a murder spree that quickly goes out of control – but only a pen of hungry porkers knows where a farm-load of dead bodies are. And they are too busy chewing on the remains to oink in the direction of the bones and bristle… PIGS has not been given a UK screening since the launch of video cassette – which is a misfortune too far because this bloody and brilliant serial-killer thriller – also known as DADDY’S DEAD DARLING – is provocative, unpredictable and really brings home the proverbial celluloid bacon! It might not be BABE, but we would favour this sublime genre jaunt any day of the week!
There is something very wrong with the elevator in a stylish office high-rise. The passengers never end up on the floor of their choice. They end up dead! When Felix, an inquisitive repairman, investigates the faulty deathtrap, he discovers that something other than malfunctioning machinery is to blame. Some dark, distorted power has gained control of the elevator for its own evil design. After his horrifying discovery is given the shaft by the authorities, he joins a nosy female journalist to battle the unholy force inside THE LIFT!
When the express elevators in New York City's 102-story Millennium Building start to malfunction, elevator mechanics Mark (James Marshall of TWIN PEAKS) and Jeff (Eric Thal of THE PUPPET MASTERS) are sent to find the cause. After a series of gruesome and deadly "accidents" occur, Mark joins forces with spunky reporter Jennifer (Naomi Watts of THE RING), who's on the hunt for a juicy story. As the death toll rises and the building is sealed off amid claims of terrorism, Mark and Jennifer attempt to unravel the horrifying secret behind the mysterious behavior of the bloodthirsty lift before it takes them - and the entire city - DOWN!
