The Movie Crypt

Nov 21, 2022

PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Alex Phillips (ALL JACKED UP AND FULL OF WORMS (now streaming on Screambox) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to share his journey directing his debut feature film. Starting off with a geek-out over the boys’ shared love of provocative/transgressive cinema (films like BRAIN DAMAGE, PINK FLAMINGOS, and REQUIEM FOR A DREAM), Alex discusses the trials of shooting a no-budget feature in Chicago during the pandemic… the “body horror” films that inspired him… the art of a good zoom shot… being a “worm” wrangler on a film set… and making provocative movies during a conservative time for the arts. How can you not be interested in a movie called ALL JACKED UP AND FULL OF WORMS!? Seriously, if this conversation about the wild and wormy side of filmmaking doesn’t at least make you slightly curious to see Alex’s film then you may be watching too much LifetimeTV.

Also… Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a patient having trouble re-connecting with his true self on the other side of a difficult divorce, Alex confesses to eating a worm to impress a girl, and the boys experience a synchronized puckering of their a**holes with the realization that YORKIETHON 7 is now upon them.
