Fantastic film with a great extra on where the movie came from, and a rather gory disgusting 6 minute short film as an added bonus. Should mention that this is not a graphic backwoods horror film. It has some gore, but it's more drama than horror. I loved it!

HASH(0x9d0b4eac) out of 5 stars The Pit Wants what the Pit Wants Sept. 7 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
and so does the movie viewer!

We were looking through a list of movies available On Demand on our TV. We watched, oh, I don't know, perhaps a dozen previews. They all seemed to be a conflagulation of every other movie in that genre that came before it. Like just a really bad knock off. I'm sure those movies would have been just fine, but just as easily forgettable and predictable.

Then we saw the preview for Jug Face.

And so it appeared we had not only found a movie sure to entertain us with messed-up characters, but we also found something unique. Something we hadn't felt as though we'd seen a thousand times before.

The paranormal element was so beautifully handled that for the first part of the story I wasn't sure if the pit TRULY wielded any power, or if these people were just crazy! (Or both!) You'll have to see the movie for yourself to find out.

Chad C Kinkle really captured the spirit of paranormal horror in its finest form. (That's not to say Jug Face is without its share of gore, but it was `earned', not there for the hell of it, and not there to make up for a flailing plotline.) The building of suspense, the wondering where it would all lead to, I mean, really, not only was this entertaining, but it was also deliciously classic and one-of-a-kind all at the same time.

The cast of this film certainly deserves credit for their exceptional ability to bring this story to life. I was impressed with how genuine it was--not something I think could have been achieved with a Brad Pitt kinda cast. Jug Face is one of those movies that you don't even think, until you're done watching it, "Oh hey, this is a movie. The people are acting." I was completed invested.

By far the best horror movie I've seen in a long, long time.

HASH(0x9c2d8534) out of 5 stars Glad I gave it a chance! July 27 2013
By Cheeky Chick - Published on Amazon.com
When I saw the title of the film, I really wondered if I should watch it or not. But, the positive reviews it received pushed me to give it a chance. And I'm glad I did! While the situation surrounding Ada's pregnancy is a tad uncomfortable, the whole situation isn't far-fetched nor are the characters. The actors, many of which I'd never heard of before, really did a wonderful job. Sean Young (the only one I had heard of) did quite the job of playing a mother I'd never wish to have. The ending was heartbreaking but didn't leave me crying foul. It's not a movie for everyone and not every horror fan will like it, but I definitely don't think this one is a dud.

HASH(0x9f2fce1c) out of 5 stars Moonshine: The Movie Oct. 20 2013
By Option_1 - Published on Amazon.com
"Jug Face" is probably the dumbest idea for a horror movie ever conceived. This is a movie built entirely from the premise of a back-woods community of anti-society rednecks who make and sell moonshine as a means of sustaining their bizarre cult-like isolationist lifestyle. This particular horror cliche has been done to death but this time the focus is on the 'shine itself. The heart of their "religion" being the sacrifice of people who's faces appear in newly molded moonshine jugs. Even worse, it straddles the stereotype as absolutely hard as possible including scenes of stopping to pick up roadkill (presumably for dinner), using glass canning jars for everything, incestuous siblings, and a backwoods band that includes a "spoons" playing old lady.

You could even say the entire idea of "The Pit" is nothing more than an alcohol induced fantasy by a group of people who constantly drink and are exposed to 'shine on a moment by moment basis. I initially wanted to take away a star because of sheer ridiculousness in premise but I decided to keep it for sake of originality in it's execution.

Which is where excellence begins to take over.

The highest point is easily the amazing cast of actors/actresses. Every single character is expertly acted with a level of believability that competently sells the slightly ridiculous premise (even minor roles). Each individual actor has just the right level of engaging and emotional investment to create their characters; most notably Lauren Ashley Carter as Ada and Sean Bridgers as Dawai.

Not only are these actors perfect (and convincing) in their roles, it's obvious they were put under excellent direction and each actor's part plays perfectly together with shot, scene, and direction of photography. Each scene worked together to set the stage for very atmospheric and at times very intense moments; my favorites easily being the interaction between Ada's character and her mother in the family's trailer.

All of that would be thrown to the wayside if it wasn't backed up by superb writing. Usually in lower budget pictures (especially ones that try to convey this level of "terse") dialog is unfitting and often stilted. "Jug Face" manages to be easily watchable and doesn't break the immersion at any point because of the combination of realistic dialog and pin-point situational acting.

My only gripe, if I could manage to level one, is that I didn't at any point find the movie "scary". Emotionally engaged, reflective, and entertained, yes; scared not so much.

It is a low budget movie (by Hollywood standards) and some people could be put off by that. Regardless, "Jug Face" shows that quality direction and execution can be just as entertaining (if not more so) than any major studio release with one hundred times the budget. It also shows the possibility to create an excellent movie out of a premise that came from a dart board of genre tropes; something Hollywood has repeatedly failed with lately. In a lot of ways this movie reminded me of the original Evil Dead; I'm a firm believer that with a better premise (even thought it is quite entertaining to see how far he went with this one) and more adequate funding Chad Crawford Kinkle could create something truly exceptional and I eagerly await more.

HASH(0x9c841f48) out of 5 stars Creepy flick. July 20 2013
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Jug Face reminds me why I don't go into the woods. It's a creepy thrill ride that left me equally uncomfortable and entertained. It's a wonderfully-acted and twisted backwoods horror that seems believable in a way that should scare everybody. Check it out.

HASH(0x9c28169c) out of 5 stars Simple and compelling. Nov. 13 2013
By R. L. Silburn - Published on Amazon.com
A beautifully shot, unassuming movie. While none of the actors are well-known, each fits his role to the letter. Overall, a simple, yet compelling and finally touching movie. Very solid.
