Uncle Peckerhead deserves special recognition for its mix of character-driven comedy, gory horror, and terrific indie punk rock vibe. This is a movie that shows the filmmaker’s love and knowledge of both genre film as well as the music scene. Also, the catchy tunes from DUH will keep you humming long afterwards.”

We’ll be releasing a new trailer and key art for Uncle Peckerhead when we announce its release date; stay tuned and check back often. In the meantime, give the Uncle Peckerhead trailer from Cinequest a spin below.
