There’s been a lot of acclaim for Jug Face, but let’s face it: The poster art kind of sucked. That stops now with this latest one-sheet that’s just eerie enough to send a quick shiver down the old spine!

From the Press Release
Gravitas Ventures has announced they have acquired U.S. VOD rights to JUG FACE, the tense horror-thriller that was written and directed by Chad Crawford Kinkle. The film was produced by Andrew van den Houten (Funeral Kings, The Woman) and Robert Tonino (Home Movie, Ghoul) for Modernciné and stars Lauren Ashley Carter (The Woman), Sean Bridgers (“Deadwood”), Sean Young (Blade Runner), Larry Fessenden (I Sell the Dead) and Daniel Manche (The Girl Next Door). The film was executive produced by Lucky McKee, Arrien Schiltkamp and Loren Semmens. JUG FACE won the Slamdance Grand Prize Screenwriting Award in 2011 and debuted as a Special Screening selection at this year’s festival. The film is slated for a July pre-theatrical VOD premiere, followed by a national theatrical rollout.
The deal for the U.S. VOD rights was negotiated by Gravitas Ventures’ Nolan Gallagher and Andrew van den Houten, President of Modernciné.
“Modernciné is proud to be pairing with Gravitas to release this incredibly original film by Chad Crawford Kinkle. Gravitas understands how to release into the digital marketplace better than most distributors in the business. We are confident that our theatrical release, in conjunction with their heightened VOD release, will give this unique film a chance to find a very large audience,” said Modernciné’s van den Houten.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with the Modernciné team on the undeniably unique JUG FACE. As longtime fans of horror films that break the mold, we are happy to follow the Pit’s wishes and bring JUG FACE to a mass VOD audience,” said Gravitas’ Nolan Gallagher.
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.
