Canadian distributor Indiecan Entertainment has picked up Don Thacker's genre flick Motivation Growth, starring Jeffrey Combs and Adrian DiGiovanni.
In the film, Ian Foliver (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 (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.”
Motivational Growth played to Toronto After Dark audiences and will debut in 2014. Don Thacker makes his directorial debut.
