Piggy’s cool. Kind of wished it would have ended up a murder couple situation but alas we take what we are given. It is insane fat girl summer

Dir. Carlota Pereda

A bullied overweight teenager sees a glimpse of hope when her tormentors are brutally abducted by a mesmerizing stranger. (Letterboxd)
Horror and I still aren’t always the best of friends but when this finally got on my radar, I knew I had to check it out. I was ready to see an overweight person be the main character and not some awkward joke, and I was not disappointed.
I liked how the film dealt with Sara (Galán) being fat. As mentioned above, she wasn’t overweight to be some kind of joke for the audience to laugh at. There’s a whole lot of fatphobia present but it’s always the other characters laughing at Sara and never an invite for the audience to laugh along (and if they do, it feels incredibly misplaced). Instead, the audience can feel for Sara and get behind the pent-up anger in her. Despite the bullying, we get to see her be a person who is just going through her every day life, hips swinging to music and going for a swim on a hot day, and as a plus-sized person myself, it felt refreshing to see this kind of representation, and it’s crazy how rare it is for a bigger character to be displayed as merely human.
Naturally, that’s not all the films deals with, though it is a central topic. Piggy doesn’t shy away from being quick with murder and plenty with blood and gore. It’s never over-the-top (though content warning for vegetarians: a lot of it takes place in a butchery) but just uses enough to keep the audience on its toes. What I especially liked was how a lot of the time, the audience is left clueless as what is about to happen or has happened. We’re often being mislead and the story takes sudden turns you don’t fully expect. It tends to give the audience an idea of what might be going on through Sara’s mind only to then completely turn it around.
That can, however, also be its weakness, depending on what you want the ending to be. Every viewer can have a different feeling with who should die and what should happen but personally, I think the ending was just right. I definitely believes the majority of the characters were horrible but asking the constant “but did I want them to die?” question actually gets exhausting by the end. On top of that is the main villain not very easy to figure out, leaving quite a bit to the audience’s interpretation. Nevertheless, a great horror movie that takes the “pig” insult to a whole other level.
her and Carrie would be best friends<3
I just watched Piggy and i... i just can't move on from it, and you're probably the only fic author i've known to ever watch it, are you gonna write something about it? >:)))
we can never move on from piggy (2022), nor should we! i might write a small oneshot
Piggy (Cerdita) 2022
A plus-size girl get pick on by bullies because of her weight. One day she found her tormenters getting kidnap by a killer (who is also plus size), the killer grows fond of the main girl and gets revenge for her.
I found a TikTok of this movie.
(Warring: This is my opinion and spoilers.)
I enjoy this movie, this is like some horror love story (there were moments I tear up). The killer is totally horror husband and I love him; He kills the bullies (which they tried to drown Sara), buys her favorite treat, and takes her away from her bitchy mother (I wasn't quite sure about the rest of the family). I like Sara (main female), she's a pretty girl and didn't deserved to be bully/torment (her swimsuit looks so cute on her). Claudia was really annoying (she's the "old friend of the main female but ditched her to become one of the popular people" character) she took a picture of Sara drowning and stole her towel (the other girls stole Sara's stuff, making her walk home in her swimsuit), Roci is so toxic and still call Sara "piggy" when she trying to save them (I wanted Roci to die at the end). I hate the scene when Sara is getting sexual harass by a group of guys, the killer gave them karma by drive his van at them (one of them broke his arm). I was so upset that Sara had to kill the man who is trying to protect her, the way she killed him was so gruesome (biting his neck).
OK, big time. I have over 1000 fans (thanks) and I have reached 70 kg. Only 5 kg left, and I will officially become obese.
Honestly, I still can't believe it. About half a year ago, something like this was completely unimaginable for me… and suddenly my round belly is resting contentedly on my thighs as I write this :)
It's something I'm getting used to every day. The way I bump into something here and there with my butt or belly, the way I'm a little clumsy and out of breath faster… all of this is really hot, but also a great new habit to learn so far.
And I don't want to push myself. That's why I decided for some time to just enjoy the way I am now and not gain any more weight.
That's one thing. Another thing is that in all of this I still stick to the original – to find a partner. Someone I can play this seriously intimate game with because that's what I enjoy most about it. A totally intense game that can never be reduced to just masturbation and overeating. And the fact that I will enjoy this game the most with someone who is close to me and whom I trust.
But simply, in those Greek fables, the heroes always walked the most important part of the journey alone. Maybe now I should be alone in this and learn not to fight with feedism, but to take it as a part of myself.
Also, thank you for all the interesting messages you write me. I wish I had the free capacity to answer them. However, I will admit that I prefer to spend my free time outside of some and I recommend it to everyone :)
Enjoy the fall guys.
