About Long Pig
LONG PIG is an epic and brutally disturbing urban legend. The soldiers of Hell hunt the weak, the corrupt, and those whose souls have been lost to desire and temptation. They show no mercy. They strip away every ounce of dignity. They rip apart all shreds of humanity - all before feeding the appetites of the men and women of power who are cannibalizing our planet.
This underground film was produced by political and environmental activist Texas businessman, George H. Russell. The production of this film was very much a family affair as George Russellís 97-year-old father, lifetime educator Dr. Kenneth L. Russell, makes his acting debut with this project. Mr. Russell presents an allegory for the social, political, and economic turmoil that this country is currently experiencing in the form of the story of LONG PIG, and the movie - while certainly timely in its content - is timeless as its themes relate directly to the darker parts of Human Nature.
