To say that Barney Burman has outdone himself in all of his thirty-six year film career might be an understatement, having just taken to his first feature production, Barney Burman’s Wild Boar following his 2019 Wild Boar short film.
The completed thriller has since undergone what could only be described as rows upon rows of accolades and wins from its festival circulation, earning multiple Bests in Feature, Original Concept, Gore, Makeup, VFX and Horror Film, and even Best New Director. And this is from multiple award associations around the country.
Alas, the film is coming to a head and with Vangelis Films handling U.S. distribution, Barney Burman’s Wild Boar is now on track to release on Amazon Prime from November 25. The official trailer is just above, with the poster below.
A group of weekend warriors venture into a toxic wasteland, where an eccentric billionaire (presumed dead) is said to have buried a fortune. Instead of riches, they soon find themselves in a fight for survival in an upside-down world where mutant pig-men are the predators, and humans are what’s for dinner.
Barney Burman’s Wild Boar stars Augie Duke (Messiah, Delusional, Dead Sound), Daniel Roebuck (We Were Soldiers, Halloween, Agent Cody Banks) and Reina Hardesty (The Flash, Startup, Brockmire).
