Synopsis (from IMDb): 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.
My Review: I did not enjoy watching Jug Face. Not that it is a bad movie (it isn’t) but there is something about such backwoods community that just rub me the wrong way.
Jug Face in this regards is more a drama movie with a few supernatural elements that a full on horror movie. The true horror is human so those expecting a fast paced gorefest will be disappointed. Jug Face is a slow burn, and is therefore quite boring at times to be honest.
I believe the movie would have actually worked better as a hillbilly’s family drama and did not need the ghostly stuff at all. By keeping the action focused on Ada’s battle against her family’s tradition and her attempts to escape the community, we might have had an Indie Gem worth winning prizes at sundance. Not my kind of movie but most definitively a better one.
My Rating: 5.5/10
Director: Chad Crawford Kinkle
