From horror director Chad Crawford Kinkle ‘Dementer’ and ‘Jug Face’ arrive on Arrow Blu ray this October.

Very happy to see that  Arrow Video have lined up Dementer + Jug Face, two films from horror director Chad Crawford Kinkle. Dementer, a psychological horror thriller, was branded as “an unexpected gem” ( and “an impressionistic, poetic occult-horror film” (Nashville Scene). Raw and unsettling, It’s a brave and unflinching story of lives lived on the fringes of society, and a battle with demons inside and out.

Shot on real locations with many non-actors playing versions of themselves – including Kinkle’s real life sister Stephanie – this is a deeply personal genre film with an emotional punch that lingers long after the credits have rolled. The limited edition set also includes Kinkle’s earlier horror hit Jug Face, making its UK Blu-ray debut, and a collector’s booklet.

And as usual with Arrow releases, they come loaded with special features that will keep you entertained long after you have watched the movie or movies in this case.
