Epic Pictures has revealed the official poster, trailer, and release date for the horror-comedy film, UNCLE PECKERHEAD. Make sure you check out the trailer below and mark your calendars. This film is a doozy!
Judy, the bassist of punk-rock band ‘DUH’, dreams of traveling the world and becoming a full-time musician with her two friends, guitarist Max and drummer Mel. But when DUH’s van is repossessed hours before they’re set to embark on their first tour, desperation sets in, and Judy strikes an uneasy alliance with a redneck old-timer by the name of Peckerhead, or ‘Peck’, who offers to drive them in his van in exchange for food and gas.
One night after their first show, Peck mysteriously goes missing. Desperate to get back on the road to make their next show, Judy volunteers to look for him. Regrettably, she finds Peck devouring the brains of the promoter who ripped them off earlier. The band quickly comes to realize their new roadie is a cursed, man-eating hillbilly and the “gig life” they’ve always dreamed of is paved with nightmares and half-eaten bodies.
A humorous, yet gruesome take on the roadie/band narrative, UNCLE PECKERHEAD is nothing less than a Faustian gorefest, a madcap music and monster movie, and a horror-comedy with heart.
The film stars Chet Siegel (“Last Two People on Earth”, How Many Farts Measure a Life?), Ruby McCollister (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”, “Zhe Zhe”), Jeff Riddle (Larry Gone Demon), and David H. Littleton (Scissor Pass, Of Dionysus).
The film is written and directed by Matthew John Lawrence (I Am Your Friend, Enter the Beard), and produced by Lawrence, Nicholas Payne Santos (It Cuts Deep, Holiday Fear), and Kristy Richman (Mother Fucker, The Daughter).
UNCLE PECKERHEAD will be screening in select theaters on Friday, August 7, 2020, and will be available on Video On Demand and Digital on Tuesday, August 11, 2020.
Make sure to mark your calendars and prepare for the film that we said was a “fun film full of outrageous gore and genuine heart”. Want to learn more? Proceed with caution in our spoiler-y review here.
