The Pig Farm (2011)

Director: ???

Writer: Christine Nielson

Composers: Lou Pomanti, Luc St. Pierre

More info: IMDb

Tagline: The shocking true story of Robert "Willie" Pickton, one of the world's most notorious SERIAL KILLERS

Plot: This is the story about Robert Pickton, Canada's most prolific serial killer.

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again?  Nope.

Here's a serial killer I've never heard of.  That this guy was able to kill so many women for so many years is remarkable.  It's dumbfounding that it took so long for the cops to stop him.  It's also terrible how many people went missing before authorities began to take notice.  One cop did and he hit a brick wall from his superiors to look into it properly.  The documentary is interesting to a point but it takes an hour and a half to tell a story (from what they've got) that could've been done in an hour.  It's not as compelling as it the subject dictates.  For anyone not familiar with this killer, it's definitely worth a look.  After searching YouTube a few minutes ago looking for a trailer or clip from this film, I came across a British documentary on this guy that tightens the story to 45 minutes.  Most every serial killer documentary I've seen from England, it's likely to be excellent.  I'm watching it next.
