Ready for a new VOD offering, horror fans? Look no further than Chad Crawford Kinkle's Jug Face, which is currently on VOD (Click here to watch) before hitting a limited theater run on August 9th.

JoBlo has a first clip of the film which shows Dawai, the village potter, uh, pottering up the clay jug that starts the horror.


Here, have a synopsis:

In a secluded backwoods community, the town hides a secret: There is a pit that hides an unspeakable evil. Only ritual sacrifice of the townspeople sates it. Dawai, the potter of a backwoods community, has crafted another face onto the ceremonial, ceramic jug that represents 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 premise is interesting, but I'm finding it really hard to be scared of a pit that looks no worse than a hole left over from that time your Uncle Dave pulled that stump out of your front yard with his pickup truck and the rain turned it into a mud puddle.

The trailer luckily seems better than the description, with shades of an excellent psychological hillbilly horror film in the vein of Deliverance:


What do you think? Disturbing and well done horror film? Or will it fall short of the mark? Let me know.
