Writer’s Opinion

The movie is another crack from Spain, Piggy has been a wonderfully timed terrifying thriller, the thought is provoked, it’s bleak, and it’s very relevant.

The course interest place right at the feet of Sara, after pain for what would have been a worst nightmare for the teen she witnesses a terrifying event, placing you in the place of Sara. Is she glad that her tormenter will be in trouble, or just being guilty for not really doing anything?

Laura Galan had been excellent from the beginning to finish, a capable and competent performance. So, you see how life can be cruel for a teenager that is different, in the case of being an overweight, you also see how cruel the crowd will be, it is very well observed. And the bullying and the gore and the horror are all measured, they could have simply made this into the gore fest, gone too far, however, nothing is overdone here.
