PIG PEN REVIEWED
“Pig Pen” was much darker than I expected. Genre tinged indie films can either go into melodrama or into straight shock material. While I’ve been watching my fair share of edgy material recently, the terrible acts perpetrated against a young teen boy in this film are rough. I get the point behind roughing the kid up to do something better. Eventually, it becomes a battle between two men trying to find their place in a wicked world. The film runs at a swift 85 minutes, but I don’t see how anyone can stay any longer in this world. It’s well worth a stream/rental/single viewing.
