Last Updated on July 23, 2021

You know you're in need of some serious help when you start taking advice from talking mold which is exactly the case for Ian Foliver, who's life is quickly going down the toilet. Every once in a while a film like MOTIVATIONAL GROWTH comes around that leaves me at a loss for words. The trailer has been around for a while, but this is the first time I've seen it and I feel like I need to go wash my brain off, or something. If you haven't seen it, you can watch it below—just prepare to be taken advantage of!

Okay, onto the good stuff! We've got some cool news to pass along today as word has come in that Don Thacker’s surreal genre film MOTIVATIONAL GROWTH has been acquired for distribution in Canada by Indiecan Entertainment. The film is fresh off its award-winning Canadian premiere at Toronto After Dark, and it looks all sorts of twisted. This marks director Don Thacker’s feature-film debut and stars the one and only Jeffery Combs as well as Adrian DiGiovanni, Danielle Doetsch, Ken Brown, Samori Sykes, Robert McConnell, Laura Carlson and Hannah Stevenson.

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.”

Right now Indiecan Entertainment is eyeing a multi-platform release in 2014. We'll update you folks once we get a solid date, but for now give the trailer a watch!
