Get ready for a wormy winter treat – All Jacked Up And Full Of Worms, the hallucinogenic horror-comedy from writer-director Alex Phillips hits streaming on Screambox on November 8th.
All Jacked Up has been a festival favorite since its premiere at Fantasia earlier this year, and received high praise from screenwriter C. Robert Cargill (The Black Phone, Doctor Strange) who called it "supremely fucked up, gross out, midnight movie nonsense of the highest degree."
Just incase you don’t believe Mr Cargill, one glance at the official synopsis for the film and you’ll see what he means:
Roscoe, a janitor for a scuzzy love motel, drifts through life until he discovers a hidden stash of powerful hallucinogenic worms. Guided by visions of a giant floating worm, he encounters Benny, a moped enthusiast trying to manifest a baby from an inanimate sex doll. They fall in love with doing worms together on a downward spiral into the primordial ooze.
Alex Phillips’ debut feature stars Phillip Andre Botello (The Art of Self-Defense), Trevor Dawkins (Easy), and Betsey Brown (The Scary of Sixty-First).
