Trailer debuts for Boar, starring Bill Moseley and Nathan Jones

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

In early summer, we learned that Australian filmmaker Chris Sun was gearing up to make a creature feature entitled BOAR, an homage to one of his favorite horror movies, Russell Mulcahy’s 1984 cult classic RAZORBACK. 

Written by Sun and Kirsty Dallas, BOAR tells the following story: 

The giant boar was a myth, a legend brought to life in a drunken pub tale. The thing about myths and legends, they are usually made up of partial truths, and in this case, complete and terrifying truths. Tearing a path of destruction through fencing and livestock, locals haven’t a clue of the chilling death that lurks in the striking Australian outback.

The Monroe’s are on a road trip to reconnect with a life they left behind several years ago. Seeing old friends and loved ones bring the tight knit family even closer together. A spontaneous decision to picnic along the shores of a cool river three hours from town brings them face to face with death itself.

A boar of staggering size with a taste for blood is cutting out a crude home in the bush, and has marked this area as his. Nothing can stand in its way, nothing can stop the destruction.

While the boar continues its savage rampage, the Monroe’s settle in for a quiet afternoon, and an evening of wild pig and roo spotting. As they are slowly and savagely stalked and slaughtered by the beast, the fight for survival becomes as animalistic and brutal as the animal itself.

With a cast including Griffin Walsh, Christie Lee Britten, Nathan Jones, John Jarratt, Roger Ward, Melissa Tkautz, Hugh Sheridan, Simone Buchanan, Bill Moseley, Steve Bisley, and Ernie Dingo, BOAR went into production in Australia in July.

The project is now in post-production, and while a release date has yet to be announced, we only know that the plan is to have the movie out sometime in 2016, Sun has released a teaser trailer online to help us get through the wait.

Judging from the teaser, BOAR looks to be a fun time that will deliver everything you could ask for from a movie about a “four meter long, eight foot high” killer pig terrorizing the outback. Personally, I can’t wait to see it.
