Writer/Director Carlota Pereda‘s feature debut, Piggy, presents a compelling, violent depiction of bullying and revenge. And it’s out on DVD and Blu-ray now.
In celebration of the Magnolia Home Entertainment release, Bloody Disgusting can exclusively reveal Alt Poster Art that highlights how mean Piggy can get. Each one gives a closer look at the main characters, framed by blood.

In the Spanish horror film…
“During the sweltering summertime of rural Spain, Sara carries an extra load of teenage agony due to the perpetual bullying from her peers. She’s also an outsider at home—her parents and little brother just don’t understand her—so, feelings internalized, she’s often found buried in her headphones, drowning out her surroundings. One day, Sara’s usual solo dip at the local pool is disrupted by the presence of a mysterious stranger in the water and an exceptionally grueling bout of abuse at the hands of three girls. But, in a strange twist of fate, along the way home Sara witnesses her bloodied tormentors being kidnapped in the back of the stranger’s van. Sara must decide whether to cooperate with the police and parents’ questioning about the kidnappings, or take her own, unbridled path—while also discovering the power of desire and belonging, and the distinction between revenge and redemption.”
Laura Galán stars as Sara in Piggy.
Piggy is Pereda’s feature length adaptation of her 2018 short, “Cerdita.”
I previously wrote in my Sundance review, “Piggy gives viewers a lot to chew on in this intimate morality tale carried by Galán’s haunting performance. Every bit of Sara’s helplessness, fear, anguish, rage, and even attraction is tangible. Pereda casts an unflinching eye on Sara, making it feel even more personal through the aspect ratio and restraint in specific types of violence.
Look for Piggy on Blu-ray and DVD now.
