Jug Face (2013) Review: Possession Pitfalls.
Jug Face follows the story of a young pregnant girl (Ada), who is trying to escape the clutches of her isolated community. A community set in the middle of the woods, where their lives are guided by the supernatural presence of a pit. Ada discovers that she is the next sacrifice and must escape before it is too late.
A supernatural horror of the control and dictatorship a pit has over a small isolated community. To please the pit they must make human sacrifices of whoever the pit requires. Those chosen are communicated through the possession of Dawai, who creates the face of the next sacrifice onto a jug (hence the masterful title). The authenticity of the mystical pit is not the centre of this story, but instead the results created by an evil force left free to reign over a helpless community.
Although the story sounds weak the director initially manages to create a film with potential; nostalgic of the cult and extremist films of the 70’s. The style of filming is pretty generic as it seems that the director has no focus on what the film is trying to say, so the camera keeps distance favouring long and medium shots, allowing the story to unfold freely within the frame. Close ups and rapid editing is used in moments of ‘white eyed’ possession…
Jug Face can be described as a drama more than a horror, there are graphic scenes of sacrifices with entrails and body parts to keep the gore hunters happy, but the film exhausts the plight that Ada faces and the inescapable fate of those chosen by the pit. Jug Face explores a plain and raw view of life, death, sex and the primitive values within this tight knit community; where girls are tested as virgins, and whipped if they go against community rules.
Equality is dead…get your jugs out for the pit…
Although the final sacrifice leaves a very bad taste in the mouth, “Jug Face” is quite an impressively acted and directed (consider the shoestring available) indie feature. It leaves this lasting impression after the credits role and that is quite a compliment. The leads are exceptional.
Lauren Ashley Carter could be an actress to watch. Those eyes are amazing, and her meek, kind of “walking in discomfort and on egg shells” performance makes sense for the character considering the family she is stuck with. She is Ada, the daughter of a moonshiner (Larry Fessenden, given a juicy part to sink his teeth into, as does Sean Young as Ada’s cruel and unsympathetic mother) who serves as the backwoods community leader of a pact of worshipers beholden to a pit which seems to be home to a type of deity that requires human sacrifices (blood from the slit throats of those chosen by it through the vision given to a potter, in a trance while his hands fashion the face of one of the community upon a jug) to satisfy it. The pit seems to offer health to its followers in return. Not much else as the community live in ramshackle homes, eating whatever they can find, using the funds from moonshine (sold to a convenient store owner who buys the brew in a back alley) to supplement what other needs might be required. Fessenden is good for these roles because he looks the part of a backwoods naturalist with little teeth, unclean and haggard appearance. He’s not altogether a creep, but the willingness of all the community to just offer their own to a pit leaves quite an unsettling feeling while watching them. And the film unflinchingly shows heads over a log stump with the cutting blade pressed against throat, the slash and jugular gag, and the fleshy blood spewing into the pit as the community move on past what they’ve done. It is disturbing to see them all eventually accepting what has happened, even as sons and daughters are taken. Ada has been in incestuous relations with her brother (Daniel Manche), because, let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of pleasant suitors in this community. She learns she’s pregnant with his child, also noticing that the next jug face demanded by the pit is her. Throwing off the jug to save herself (but her child more), the pit god arises to take from the community until it is satiated even worse is that Ada is cursed to see through the god’s eyes and those it kills. She seizures and her eyes go white, feeling their agony while it kills those she knows.
Horrible situation all the way around. Will she relent and face up to her destiny? Running doesn’t work nor does hiding her secret the pit will get what it desires. Good casting besides the chief roles has the understated Sean Bridges as Dawai, the potter who must bear the burden of his handiwork on the clay ensuring that someone will die regardless of if his knowledge or not. The pit guides his hands, and after the jug hardens in a makeshift stove, Dawai sees who will die staring right at him. The film spends a majority of its time right in the woods where the community lives, just retreating to the outside world when Fessenden needs to sell his moonshine. Sean Young is quite a wretch as the miserable mom who is preoccupied with her daughter’s virginity and hymen. When she cuts on her daughter’s knuckles to find out who took her virginity, it is quite harsh and hard to watch. In the community, the people operate negotiate marriages between their children, as Ada learns she’s betrothed to another family’s son. That son is “chosen” after Ada loses the jug with her face, which just continues the spiral out of control. The god is never seen, and the attacks are hazed by the askew visions Ada is anguished to endure. Brief glimpses of ripped apart carcasses, guts, and meaty blood are essentially what is left by the pit god once it’s done with those victims chosen. Ada tries to get away, save her baby, and escape a fate predestined without her approval. To appease the pit deity seems to be their only reason for existing that hopeless, sinking feeling is prevalent. Ultimately, all those lives lost because Ada isn’t keen on giving up hers casts a tragic, lingeringly sad pall over the whole movie: it all seems so unfair.
