The inextricable link between horror and true crime is a fascinating one. Films like Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer and more tenuously The Texas Chain Saw Massacre take inspiration from the real-life horrors human beings are capable of. Writer and co-director Adam Ray Fair with co-director Lyon Mitchell tackled their own piece of true crime with their upcoming film Piglady.
The film is loosely inspired by the Susan Monica Murders, which took place in the mid-2010s. Allegedly, Susan Monica murdered two men who worked for her, dismembered them, and fed them to her pigs. For this production, a majority of the film was shot on the property adjacent to where the actual events took place.
Read the full synopsis below:
A group of friends, while on a Christmas vacation to their family cabin in Southern Oregon, learn of a local rumor of an antisocial woman who allegedly murders people and feeds her victims to pigs.
It may just turn out to be more than a local rumor. See why in our exclusive clip below!
Sandra Dee Tryon, Adam Ray Fair, Karri Davis, Liam Samuel Watkins, Alicia Karami, Lazarus Tate, Jeffery Hunter, and Shyvhan Storm star in the film.
Piglady comes to digital platforms on August 22, 2023, from Gravitas Ventures.
