Without a doubt one of my most eagerly awaited Blu-ray releases, Don Thacker's Motivational Growth, which just so happens to star the might Jeffrey Combs, will be descending upon the home entertainment world in a couple of months time. On September 30th it will hit VOD, worldwide, via Devolver (with Indiecan handling the Canadian release), with a Canadian Blu-ray/DVD release on the same day. The following week, October 6th, will see the festival hit move south to the States.
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.”
