A trailer, poster and images have landed online for writer-director Matthew John Lawrence’s horror-comedy Uncle Peckerhead which follows three members of a punk rock band who discover that their new roadie is a cursed, man-eating hillbilly; check them out here…
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.
Uncle Peckerhead features a cast that includes Chet Siegel, Ruby McCollister, Jeff Riddle, and David H. Littleton.
It is set for a digital release on August 11th.
