ALL JACKED UP AND FULL OF WORMS
Requiem for worms
Alex Philipps, 2022, USA
71', DCP, anglais st français
Alex Phillips’ first feature film, All Jacked Up and Full of Worms unfolds like a long, filthy, hallucinatory nightmare. Two hapless buddies experiment with hallucinogenic earthworms whose absorption through every orifice will provoke the worst misbehaviour. Shot in the middle of a pandemic on a shoestring budget, this twisted comedy horror presents a drug experience on screen that is as absurd as it is sticky, but that still highlights a certain idea of friendship and solidarity, even in the worst extremes.
