When the Devil Climbs
Drake Vaughn, author

On the day before his scheduled reunion, Russ and his coworkers are attacked by a horde of pigs infected with a mysterious virus. Russ soon finds that on this day a reunion is the the last thing on his mind.

Assessment:

Killer pigs and a truckload of bloodthirsty survivalists aren't enough to save this confusing and surprisingly dull thriller. When a team of ex-cons working to hang billboards along the highway in California's San Joaquin Valley is pinned down by man-eating pigs, tension is quickly dissipated by point-of-view character Russ's frequent and lengthy discourses on his ill-spent criminal past. Due to stereotypical characters, poor plotting, and a predictable ending, a potentially interesting premise fails to pan out.
