Goofs

When Ada and Eileen are washing clothes in the stream, they are both barefoot. Ada wades across the river and up the bank to hang the clothes and has her vision of the creature attacking Eileen. She screams, her mother runs to her, and they both race down to the river where they see blood, at which point Ada is still barefoot. The two women then follow the blood trail to the pit, running all the way. When they arrive at the pit, Ada is wearing black socks and boots over white stockings. See more »

Nicely offbeat backwoods horror
26 April 2013 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Ada is a young girl who lives with her backwoods hillbilly moonshinin' clan. A close knit community, they all share a rather arcane religion. Every so often, The Potter makes a ceramic jug adorned by a face. Every face that appears on the jug is a member of the clan and any face that appears must be sacrificed for the good of the community. Sacrificed to The Pit, which lies in the woods. Because The Pit wants what it wants and The Pit must be sated as this is how it's always been. If The Pit doesn't get what it wants then whatever dwells within it gets angry. And when The Pit gets angry, the community will be punished.

One day, while exploring The Potter's shed, Ada finds the latest jug face. It's her own...

Will she allow herself to be sacrificed, for the good of the clan? or will she set in motion a plan to spare her own life?

Jug Face is a straightforward but pleasantly offbeat horror that puts an interesting and unusual spin on the hillbilly horror/hicksploitation sub genre, with a nice turn by Larry Fessenden as the clan leader and a surprisingly great turn from Sean Young as the overbearing matriarch.

Executively produced by Lucky Mckee and with FX by Robert Kurtzman, it's a satisfying and solid horror that's well worth checking out overall, for fans looking for something just a little bit different.

7/10, decent little film and recommended.
