Hey Chicago, get ready for “Music Box of Horrors: Scared Stupid”, the ongoing event taking place at the famous Music Box Theatre.
Fandor & the Bloody Disgusting-powered SCREAMBOX are excited to present our widely-celebrated, festival-sensation avant-gutter psychedelic freakout All Jacked Up and Full of Worms, which is set to screen at the Music Box this coming Friday, October 21 @ 9 PM) with writer/director Alex Phillips in attendance!
This is just one showing as the film embarks on a limited theatrical roadshow run across select North American cities spanning October and November ahead of the film’s November 8th premiere date on the Bloody Disgusting-powered streaming service SCREAMBOX and VOD platforms, followed by an exclusive window on Cinedigm’s indie discovery platform Fandor.
In the film described as “a flamboyant, darkly outrageous new vision that mashes together retro grindhouse thrills with the squirmy depths of underground cinema”…
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.
In addition to the Chicago International Film Festival, the film will screen at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival on October 19th, Nightmares Film Festival in Columbus, OH on October 22nd, and the Denver Film Festival on November 4th and 5th.
