If there’s one film that I saw in 2013 that stayed with me longer than any other, it is Motivational Growth. Most of you haven’t had the chance to see it yet, but I have a feeling that when you do, you will love it as well. I’ll admit, that if somebody had told me that I would absolutely love, a film about a guy talking to a huge pile of intelligent mold that is growing in his bathroom floor, I’d probably have told them that they were insane. It’s an absurd premise, but some of the greatest films of all time have absurd premises as well. Motivational Growth is shot, acted, and edited so exceptionally well, that I think it will appeal to many, even those that aren’t usually a fan of oddball indie horror flicks. The details of a North American release of the film have surfaced. Check the press release out below, and be sure to secure yourself a copy when it becomes available.
Three companies team to release MOTIVATIONAL GROWTH
In North America – Release Dates Announced & Artwork Revealed
Toronto, Canada – August 7, 2014 – Indiecan Entertainment, Parade Deck Films and Devolver Digital have teamed up to release Don Thacker’s sleeper festival-hit MOTIVATIONAL GROWTH(starring genre-legend Jeffrey Combs). The film will hit VOD worldwide on September 30th (via Devolver in most countries, and Indiecan in Canada), Blu-Ray & DVD in Canada on the same date, and DVD in the US the following week (via Parade Deck), on October 6th. Also, as a bonus for those attending FanExpo/Festival of Fear in Toronto (August 28th – 31st), advance copies of the film will be available at the Indiecan booth (#5412).
The DVD release will include a commentary track (with actors Jeffrey Combs and Adrian DiGiovanni, and director Don Thacker), a photo gallery and trailers. The Blu-Ray edition will also include some additional behind the scenes material.
In Motivational Growth, Ian Foliver (Adrian DiGiovanni), a depressed and reclusive man in his 30s, finds himself taking advice from a growth in his bathroom after a failed suicide attempt. The Mold (‘ReAnimator’ star Jeffrey Combs), a smooth talking fungus born of the filth in a neglected bathroom, works to help Ian clean himself up and remodel his lifestyle. The Mold has big plans for Ian, but they may not be as innocent as they seem. A labyrinthine-narrative follows, full of colorfully-drawn characters and gruesome body horror. “The Mold knows, Jack. The Mold knows.”
