Editorial Reviews

Jug Face tells the story of a pregnant teen trying to escape a backwoods community when she discovers that she may be sacrificed to a creature in a pit. The entity in the pit requires a sacrifice for keeping the community safe. The face of the person to be sacrificed is crafted onto a ceramic jug. When ignored, the entity unleashes an evil onto the community. Now no one is safe as tragedy befalls each member one by one and they soon realize that the pit wants what it wants.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Pit Wants what the Pit Wants September 7, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
and so does the movie viewer!

We were looking through a list of movies available On Demand on our TV. We watched, oh, I don't know, perhaps a dozen previews. They all seemed to be a conflagulation of every other movie in that genre that came before it. Like just a really bad knock off. I'm sure those movies would have been just fine, but just as easily forgettable and predictable.

Then we saw the preview for Jug Face.

And so it appeared we had not only found a movie sure to entertain us with messed-up characters, but we also found something unique. Something we hadn't felt as though we'd seen a thousand times before.

The paranormal element was so beautifully handled that for the first part of the story I wasn't sure if the pit TRULY wielded any power, or if these people were just crazy! (Or both!) You'll have to see the movie for yourself to find out.

Chad C Kinkle really captured the spirit of paranormal horror in its finest form. (That's not to say Jug Face is without its share of gore, but it was `earned', not there for the hell of it, and not there to make up for a flailing plotline.) The building of suspense, the wondering where it would all lead to, I mean, really, not only was this entertaining, but it was also deliciously classic and one-of-a-kind all at the same time.

The cast of this film certainly deserves credit for their exceptional ability to bring this story to life. I was impressed with how genuine it was--not something I think could have been achieved with a Brad Pitt kinda cast. Jug Face is one of those movies that you don't even think, until you're done watching it, "Oh hey, this is a movie. The people are acting." I was completed invested.

By far the best horror movie I've seen in a long, long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moonshine: The Movie October 20, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
"Jug Face" is probably the dumbest idea for a horror movie ever conceived. This is a movie built entirely from the premise of a back-woods community of anti-society rednecks who make and sell moonshine as a means of sustaining their bizarre cult-like isolationist lifestyle. This particular horror cliche has been done to death but this time the focus is on the 'shine itself. The heart of their "religion" being the sacrifice of people who's faces appear in newly molded moonshine jugs. Even worse, it straddles the stereotype as absolutely hard as possible including scenes of stopping to pick up roadkill (presumably for dinner), using glass canning jars for everything, incestuous siblings, and a backwoods band that includes a "spoons" playing old lady.

You could even say the entire idea of "The Pit" is nothing more than an alcohol induced fantasy by a group of people who constantly drink and are exposed to 'shine on a moment by moment basis. I initially wanted to take away a star because of sheer ridiculousness in premise but I decided to keep it for sake of originality in it's execution.

Which is where excellence begins to take over.

The highest point is easily the amazing cast of actors/actresses. Every single character is expertly acted with a level of believability that competently sells the slightly ridiculous premise (even minor roles). Each individual actor has just the right level of engaging and emotional investment to create their characters; most notably Lauren Ashley Carter as Ada and Sean Bridgers as Dawai.

Not only are these actors perfect (and convincing) in their roles, it's obvious they were put under excellent direction and each actor's part plays perfectly together with shot, scene, and direction of photography.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good flick November 6, 2013
By Dani
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This was extremely entertaining, and different enough from all the other horror movies out there that it kept me interested. It moves slowly at times, but that doesn't detract from the movie, and in fact enhances it. Totally worth watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy flick. July 20, 2013
By Brian
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Jug Face reminds me why I don't go into the woods. It's a creepy thrill ride that left me equally uncomfortable and entertained. It's a wonderfully-acted and twisted backwoods horror that seems believable in a way that should scare everybody. Check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad I gave it a chance! July 27, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
When I saw the title of the film, I really wondered if I should watch it or not. But, the positive reviews it received pushed me to give it a chance. And I'm glad I did! While the situation surrounding Ada's pregnancy is a tad uncomfortable, the whole situation isn't far-fetched nor are the characters. The actors, many of which I'd never heard of before, really did a wonderful job. Sean Young (the only one I had heard of) did quite the job of playing a mother I'd never wish to have. The ending was heartbreaking but didn't leave me crying foul. It's not a movie for everyone and not every horror fan will like it, but I definitely don't think this one is a dud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and compelling. November 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A beautifully shot, unassuming movie. While none of the actors are well-known, each fits his role to the letter. Overall, a simple, yet compelling and finally touching movie. Very solid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anthropologically intriguing horror movie January 19, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I am a cultural anthropologist by training and an aficionado of folkways of rural peoples of North and South America. Though fictional, I found the cultural milieu of JugFace a cool and ll done way to present a horror story. Original and twisted in a very real way. The symbolism was a bit overwrought in some ways and thin at others, but overall an enjoyable movie.
