Modernciné announced today that JUG FACE, the tense horror-thriller written and directed by Chad Crawford Kinkle, will have a national theatrical roll out on August 9th through its domestic distribution arm Modern Distributors. That's some fantastic news for those of you who wanted to check out the award winning horror thriller. JUG FACE has a very intriguing premise and one that I seriously can't wait to check out — the pit as spoken!
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, 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.
The film was produced by Andrew van den Houten and Robert Tonino for Modernciné, and stars Lauren Ashley Carter, Sean Bridgers, Sean Young, Larry Fessenden and Daniel Manche. JUG FACE will have a pre-theatrical VOD roll out in the U.S. on July 8th, and is slated for a VOD release, day and date with theatrical, on August 9th.
