One of the weirdest movies off the current festival circuit is headed for wider exposure.

Cinedigm has announced that ALL JACKED UP AND FULL OF WORMS, which has previously played Fantasia and will screen at Austin, TX’s Fantastic Fest September 27, the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival October 19 and at the Chicago International Film Festival October 21, will also have limited theatrical play after that. It will premiere November 8 on Bloody Disgusting’s streaming platform SCREAMBOX, with a wide digital release and an exclusive window on Cinedigm’s Fandor service to follow.

Written and directed by Alex Phillips, ALL JACKED UP stars Phillip Andre Botello, Trevor Dawkins, Betsey Brown, Eva Fellows, Mike Lopez, Carol Rhyu and Sammy Arechar. The synopsis: “Working at a seedy motel, maintenance man Roscoe [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.”
