The new film from director Chad Crawford Kinkle is getting a UK release, premiering on the Arrow Channel on Friday 1.10.21 with a special limited edition 2 disc Blu-ray set release the following Monday.
The Blu-ray set comes with a copy of Kinkle's first feature, JUG FACE, which I reviewed on here back in 2014 when it was released on DVD by 101 Films as THE PIT. I liked THE PIT enough that it made it into my Top 10 of 2014, where I called it 'a fine backwoods USA horror about a community in thrall to a Machenesque monster lurking in their midst'. JUG FACE / THE PIT is well worth checking out.
However, I'm sorry to report that DEMENTER really isn't.
The DEMENTER disc comes with three commentary tracks (Kinkle, cast and crew, and Kinkle and critic Chris Hallock), making of, Larry Fessenden interview, short films and a trailer and stills gallery. JUG FACE comes with Kinkle in conversation with Jon Towlson, Lauren Ashley Carter talking to Robert Nevitt and Chad Kinkle taking you on a tour of his face collection (yes that's right). It's an admirable package but it's a great shame it's not for a better main feature.
DEMENTER premieres on the Arrow Channel on 1st October 2021 and the limited edition Blu-ray set is out on Monday 4th October 2021
