“The pit wants what it wants.”
That’s the eerie tagline from the festival trailer for Chad Crawford Kinkle’s horror drama Jug Face, starring The Woman‘s Lauren Ashley Carter and Sean Bridgers, along with Sean Young, Larry Fessenden and Daniel Manche. The film will world premiere as part of the Slamdance special screenings program this coming week.
“Jug Face, which tells the story of a teen, pregnant with her brother’s child, who tries to escape from a backwoods community when she discovers she must sacrifice herself to a creature in a pit, was the grand prize winner of the 2011 Slamdance screenwriting competition.” Producers are The Woman‘s Andrew van den Houten and Robert Tonino for MODERNCINÉ.
Slamdance, launched 18 years ago as an alternative to Sundance, has already unveiled its competition lineup with 10 narrative films and eight documentaries — including 13 world premieres. The fest will take place Jan. 20-26 in Park City, Utah, at the Treasure Mountain Inn. READ MORE
Ben Peyser and Scott Rutherford’s Ghost Team One will be playing at the Slamdance festival later this month. Starring Carlos Santos, Fernanda Romero, J.R. Villarreal, Meghan Folcone, Tony Cavalero, James Babson, Scott MacArthur, and Craig Stott, it’s a subversive, comedic take on the found footage genre wherein two roommates deathly afraid of ghosts both fall in love with a girl who believes their home is haunted.
Now Indiewire has their hands on the trailer, and it looks like a lot of low budget fun. I think I’d actually see this movie!
In the film, “In order to impress a girl, two roommates set out to make a documentary about a murder that took place in their house decades ago. The girl thinks that the victim’s ghost still resides there, and the two guys think that making a movie with her will get them laid. But after setting cameras up around the house, the legitimately supernatural occurrences that follow make it apparent that the ghost is not only real, but that she’s a vengeful Vietnamese madame from the 1930’s that’s become smitten with our guys.”
