Worms… it’ll get you fucked up!
After having its World Premiere at Fantasia, Alex Phillips’s avant-gutter psychedelic freakout All Jacked Up and Full of Worms is heading to this month’s Fantastic Fest, in Austin, Texas.
It was announced ahead of the premiere that Cinedigm acquired the indie, which will join the Bloody Disgusting-powered horror streaming service SCREAMBOX this fall, followed by an exclusive window on Cinedigm’s indie discovery platform Fandor.
Here’s a brand new tripped-out, gross-out trailer for the film described as “a flamboyant, darkly outrageous new vision that mashes together retro grindhouse thrills with the squirmy depths of underground cinema.” Nerdist debuted the trailer this afternoon.
In the film, “Working at a seedy motel, maintenance man Roscoe (Phillip Andre Botello) is always searching for his latest fix. When he stumbles upon a powerfully hallucinogenic worm, his days of dime-store drugs are over. Along with his new love interest (Dawkins), the pair embark on a delirious odyssey of sex, violence, and becoming one with the dirt.”
The transgressive splatter comedy also stars Trevor Dawkins (“Easy”) and Betsey Brown (The Scary of Sixty-First), with Mike Lopez, Noah Lepawsky and Eva Fellows. The film was produced by Georgia Bernstein and Ben Gojer.
