Collecting buzz during certain festivals and garnering a heap of awards, Long Pigs is a "mockumentary" fit to the design of Man Bites Dog, directed by two amateur filmmakers, Chris Power and Nathan Hynes. Following a cannibal during many of his exploits, not much is known about the characters within the film other than what is supplied over the course of dialog. The two hopeful documentarians created this "found footage" we have before us. Supplementing not just casual shadow to the serial killer but also interviews with members of the police force, families of Anthony McAlistar's victims, and the ramblings of a radio jockey, Long Pigs is an independent Canadian horror film that stretches what low-budget found footage has to offer. Throughout the runtime, Long Pigs makes it very apparent that the brain-trust isn't within the gore but the interactions with the characters and the ending that we all foresee coming. In fact, the scenes of violence we're gifted with are anything but exploitative, rather, short and shocking. One scene that comes to mind is Anthony's slinging of a victim and demonstrating the "Gein configuration" that was also graphically utilized in Marian Dora's Cannibal. A time lapsed dissection of a hanging corpse is set to The Nutcracker Suite, a poor choice of music that only hampers the effect of butchery and is one of the few drawbacks of Long Pigs that can't be attested to budgetary restraints.
