What the hell is “JUG FACE”?


A tale of prophetic pottery, incest and village sacrifice in the name of a creature.

As Sundance rapidly approaches (Fango will be on hand!), its punked up counterpart SlamDance threatens to steal interest with one film, JUG FACE. Directed by a gentleman named Chad Crawford Kinkle, the film resides in a rural area where the pit has spoken. “Dawai, the potter of a backwoods community, has crafted a face on a ceramic jug of the person that the pit wants sacrificed. Ada (Laura Ashley Carter), pregnant with her brother’s child, has seen her face on the jug and hides it in the woods, determined to save the life of her unborn. If she does not sacrifice herself however, the creature from the pit will kill everyone in the village until she does.”

JUG FACE (which co-stars THE LAST WINTER director and actor Larry Fessenden) is currently trailer-less, so where this goes, nobody knows. Hopefully, it’s as gonzo as it sounds.

Take a look at the poster and stills below, and if you so happen to be in town, JUG FACE premieres at SlamDance on Wednesday, January 23. You can find its official Facebook here.
