Today, we’re thrilled to share an exclusive clip from the film, one that will introduce you to the band. Meet DUH below the trailer and synopsis!
Judy, bassist of punk-rock band DUH, dreams of becoming a full-time musician. But in order to secure a van for the band’s first tour, she must strike an alliance with Peckerhead, a man-eating hillbilly with charm aplenty. Now, along with the ordinary struggles of the “gig life”, Judy must navigate the trail of half-eaten bodies DUH leaves in their wake.
Uncle Peckerhead celebrated its world premiere at Panic Fest in Kansas City earlier this year, where it was named among the “Best of Fest”. The film also received a Special Jury Award for Narrative Feature Film at the Calgary Underground Film Festival and Audience Choice Award at the Portland Horror Film Festival.
“Uncle Peckerhead is the type of film we don’t come across often,” says Yulissa Morales, Epic Pictures and Dread’s Director of Distribution. “It’s even less often that we see a film with the word ‘Peckerhead’ in the title. Dread couldn’t be more excited to share such a film with you, it’s a really fun ride.”
