Friday, February 5, 2021 | Exclusives, News


The independent horror film demonstrates that you can’t outrun a cult.

Dark Star Pictures gave us the word that they’ve picked up DEMENTER, from JUG FACE writer/director Chad Crawford Kinkle, and have set a March 2 release on digital platforms. The movie stars Katie Groshong, Stephanie Kinkle, Brandy Edmiston, Eller Hall, Scott Hodges and indie fright auteur Larry Fessenden; the synopsis: “The film follows Katie [Groshong], a young woman who flees a backwoods cult and takes a job at a care center for special needs adults in her determination to do some good with her life. But despite her best intentions, Katie can’t escape the signs that ‘the devils’ are coming for Stephanie [Kinkle], a woman with Down syndrome she cares for, who keeps getting sicker despite Katie’s rituals to ward off evil spirits.” See our review of DEMENTER here.
