After a recent limited theatrical engagement, it has been announced that a Jug Face Blu-ray and DVD release will take place in October:
"MVD Entertainment Group and Modern Distributors announced today that the Slamdance Film Festival favorite JUG FACE, written and directed by Chad Crawford Kinkle, will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on October 15th, 2013. The film was produced by Andrew van den Houten (“Funeral Kings,” ‘’The Woman”) and Robert Tonino (‘’Home Movie,” “The Girl Next Door”) for Modernciné, and stars Lauren Ashley Carter (“The Woman”), Sean Bridgers (“Deadwood”), Sean Young (“Blade Runner”), Larry Fessenden (“You’re Next”) 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 critically acclaimed film was released nationally in theaters on August 9th. This marks the first title under the newly minted home video output deal between Modern Distributors and MVD Entertainment Group.
The deal was negotiated by Ed Seaman, C.O.O. and General Manager FOR MVD ENTERTAINMENT GROUP and Andrew van den Houten, CEO of both Modernciné and Modern Distributors.
Ada, her family and a small isolated backwoods community worship a mysterious pit. The pit has the power to heal and protect all who honor it but at a deadly price...it demands an occasional sacrifice. The pit communicates through the local potter who, while in a trance, crafts ceramic jugs that carry the face of a person to be sacrificed to the entity that lives within it. Ada has a secret about the latest jug face that she's determined to keep hidden but the pit demands a sacrifice and unleashes an evil onto the community until it gets who it really wants.
“We are honored to be working with Modernciné and Andrew van den Houten. They have a commitment to bringing us high quality films like Jug Face, and we are looking forward to sustained high integrity content together in the coming years,” said Ed Seaman of MVD Entertainment Group.
“Jug Face is unlike anything being released into a marketplace that is fraught with sequels and remakes. Chad Crawford Kinkle’s originality and voice allow for an unexpected and welcomed addition to the horror genre,” said Andrew van den Houten, producer.
Modernciné most recently debuted the much anticipated horror comedy ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE, directed by Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson, at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival as the opening night film for the 25th Anniversary Midnight Madness screening section."
