Murderous boar sinks his teeth in

MARY Valley's rolling countryside is usually the picturesque backdrop for happy tourist snaps, but in Sunshine Coast film director Chris Sun's latest horror movie, the hills are alive with terror.

Boar, Sun's follow-up horror film to the successful Charlie's Farm, is scheduled for a 2016 release.

To keep fans happy in the interim, the movie's official Facebook page has given horror fanatics a glimpse of what to expect.

Boar captures the essence of Charlie's Farm, which was also filmed in the Gympie region.

The movie tells the story of a man travelling along the highway to town when he comes across a crashed car by a paddock.

The couple who had been travelling in the car cannot be found. Just the wreckage remains strewn on the side of the road.

The man grabs his spotlight and directs it into the paddock and what the light illuminates is truly terrifying - a giant boar.

The teaser shows snippets of the terror that ensues as locals come to grips with the reality a monster boar in on a murderous rampage.

Some are quick to heed the warning, while others dismiss the stories as sensational rumours.

"It will take more than a rifle and slug to slow it down," warns one local.

Boar was filmed at locations including Lagoon Pocket and Kandanga, recruiting many Mary Valley residents as extras.

Starring in the film is the combined experience of John Jarratt, Nathan Jones, Melissa Tkautz, Bill Moseley and Ernie Dingo.
