In a bold move for his sophomore effort, Chad Crawford Kinkle (Jug Face) attempts to represent the developmentally disabled in his new feature Dementer. Co-starring his sister, Stephanie, who has down syndrome, Kinkle’s film was chosen by The Nashville Film Festival to premiere this October. Katie Groshong (A Measure of the SinJug Face) and Larry Fessenden (Sadistic Intentions, Depraved) also join the cast.

The story, not surprisingly, is billed as both “thrilling and disturbing” as well as “deeply personal.” While there doesn’t seem to be a trailer just yet, consider our interest piqued. Keep it in the back of your mind if you’re going to be in the Nashville area this fall. The Nashville Film Festival runs from October 3-12.

Dementer will make it’s World Premiere on October 10, 2019 at 8:30 PM.
