Film Review | Piggy

British revenge thriller Piggy marks the feature debut of writer director Kieron Hawkes. Set in modern day London, the all-too-predictable narrative revolves around Joe (Martin Compston), a young, introverted delivery boy who is bored by his existence.

Things start to look up when tough older brother, John (Kill List‘s Neil Maskell), re-enters his life. When John is suddenly and brutally murdered, Joe is forced back to his prior state of isolation. Though he finds solace in Piggy (Paul Anderson) who appears on his doorstep claiming to be John’s old schoolmate. At first friendly, Piggy wants to exact revenge on John’s killers and soon he and Joe are working in tandem in an escalating campaign of violence and murder.
