Critic Reviews for Jug Face
This morbid, cruel movie seems leached of all things that might inadvertently give viewers pleasure.
Some low-budget manifestations of the supernatural jazz up the frights now and again, but as the novelty of worshiping a hole in the ground fades, the film paints itself into a corner.
An impressively oozing slab of indie horror that bodes well for first-time writer-director Chad Crawford Kinkle.
Kinkle shows welcome restraint in pacing his grimy little tale, even if the sum of its parts never quite feels like more than an admirably rendered campfire yarn.
Audience Reviews for Jug Face
Never make a pact with a demon, fine we all know that, and this little horror movie, despite a rather curious idea (the pit, especially), doesn't have much to offer beyond that and doesn't work in any level - not as a tense slow-burn nor as an creepy hillbilly sect story.
In an insular rural moonshiners' community, a malevolent pit periodically demands the sacrifice of whoever's face appears on a jug. If you can buy into the premise, this low-budget horror is very well-acted, creating a unique folk mythology and a creepy sense of backwoods doom; sort of a mix between WINTERS BONE and "The Lottery."
