 Synopses for Daddy's Deadly Darling (1972)
1.They'll eat anything...So She Had the Perfect Method to Dispose of her Victims! The Troma Team is proud to present this long lost horror classic written, starring and directed by cult icon Marc Lawrence (From Dusk Til Dawn, The Big Easy). Originally released in 1972 under the title Daddy's Deadly Darling, Pigs follows the misadventures of Lynn Hart (Toni Lawrence), a mentally deranged young woman on the run from the law for the murder of her sexually abusive father. With nowhere left to go, Lynn takes a job in a small town diner run by ghoulish pig farmer Zambrini (Marc Lawrence), who delights in feeding corpses to his voracious pigs. Even as Lynn settles into small town life she cannot escape her sexual psychosis, viciously murdering any man that tries to sleep with her. Zambrini, developing a fatherly love for the confused young woman, covers up her savage crimes with the help of his pigs! With grinderhouse production values that paved the way for The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes, Pigs is a lost cult classic that is as effective today as it was 35 years ago.

Let's face it, Pigs probably isn't the most convincing of titles for a horror film. Pigs generally don't provoke a sense of terror one might expect by, say, a colony of bats or a pack of wild dogs. However, this 1972 "playing at a drive-in near you" film had very little to do with pigs, and in fact was originally released under the more evocative title Daddy's Deadly Darling. Pigs has several things going for it; first and foremost, originality. The story involves young, beautiful but emotionally damaged Lynn Webster (Toni Lawrence) who suffers from extreme bipolar dementia (when the excruciating "la la la" song is queued, audiences know Lynn's entering psychotic territory). Running away from the past, Lynn stumbles upon a secluded roadside diner and charms her way into a job working for the owner Zambrini, (film veteran Marc Lawrence), a true backwoods eccentric with an unusual relationship with his herd of ceaselessly squealing pigs. Zambrini and Lynn become fast friends and unknowingly share a common bond: complete insanity. He feeds unearthed corpses to his bovine pals who go hog wild for human flesh while she kills anyone that reminds her of a terrible past trauma. Things get complicated when neighbors and the law start snooping around. Sure, there are over-the-top performances, unexplained sub-plots, and a barely there budget, but there's also loads of wonderful dark gritty atmosphere and enough plain weirdness to make it all interesting. For those that like plenty of lard in their slop, Pigs serves it up just fine. --Matt Wold
