John D’Amico’s Horror on YouTube #19 – Porkin’ Across America


Porkin’ Across America (2012)

Every day in October, a recommendation from John D’Amico of a horror movie or TV episode available for free on YouTube. Enjoy:

It starts slow—TV anchor Jim Haggerty gets himself an RV and sets off to taste “prime pork in every state in the union!” Then his wife calls, and the dark water starts filling his basement. Over the course of eight bite-sized episodes, the undeterrable Jim’s life plumbs ever lower depths, and things get weirder and weirder until—well, you’ll see how it all pans out. Keep an eye out for the bucket of blood.

It’s a sharp, mean tale of comeuppance—the darkest and funniest of The Onion’s politically-charged 2012 internet video spread, which also included the instant classic Sex House and the vaguely Lynchian Lake Dredge Appraisal.
