Good low budget horror with a sense of humor
30 June 2016 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

Jug face was one of those movies I chose to watch because I was getting low on films I wanted to see with my Amazon Shudder subscription. Prior to this one, I watched 'Shuttle' and started watching 'A lonely place to die', and though Jugface is more of a horror film than the latter mentioned features which fall into the 'psychological thriller' category, it is by far much better.

Jug Face kind of reminds me of a Cormac McCarthy story for some reason. The plot centers around a young girl living in a backwoods and backwards community who becomes impregnated by her brother. The community is based around a belief in a magical pit that in return for human sacrifice, can cure disease and illness. The community potter supposedly receives visions from the pit of the face of the person-to-be-sacrificed, and then makes a clay sculpture of their face (hence 'Jug Face'). Of course it comes to be that the face that the potter makes is that of our pregnant protagonist, who hides the jug face before anyone can see it, causing a chain of tragedy that eventually propels her to try to escape her community and the spirits that dwell within it.

Despite the ridiculous premise which definitely has overtones of dark humor, Jug Face is a pretty intense film. It's the kind of movie that will have you laughing one minute, but unlike many other 'horror-comedy' the director knows when to reel it back in so not to sacrifice any of the suspense.

Jug Face is low budget, but the cinematography, acting and directing, and even the soundtrack is all top-notch.

Not mind blowing by any means, but a good movie.
