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.
