[Trailer] ‘Motivational Growth’ Looks Creative as Hell
Every now and then a flick rolls along that makes you say hey, that actually looks different! Motivational Growth is a film that fits that… mold, to a T. There doesn’t appear to be much of a budget at work here (imdb.com reports an estimated budget of $176k), and there aren’t all too many marquee names in front of the camera, but there looks to be content here worth looking into.
If all else fails, this one probably plays out like a bad 1950’s B-movie, which isn’t necessarily a terrible thing.
You’ve got to get a look at the trailer to understand exactly where I’m coming from. So, the rambling will cease, you can chew on the details of the film and give the trailer a go. Be ready for the unpredictable.
Don Thacker writes and directs. The film stars (the voice of) Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Adrian DiGiovanni (Vista Del Monte), Danielle Doetsch (Bikini Girls on Ice), Pete Giovagnoli (Jamie and Jessie Are Not Together) and Ken Brown.
Synopsis: “Ian Folivor (Adrian DiGiovanni), depressed and reclusive, finds himself taking advice from a fungal growth after a failed suicide attempt. The Mold (Jeffrey Combs), a smooth talking chunk of Aspergillus born from the filth collecting in Ian's neglected bathroom, works to win Ian's trust by helping him clean himself up and remodel his lifestyle. Ian attracts the attention of a neighbor, Leah, and begins to receive strange messages from his broken TV that make him realize that The Mold may not be as helpful and well intentioned as it seems to be. Strange characters with even stranger events cast Ian's life a sharp relief in the shadow of an epic battle between good and evil that Ian is only partially aware of.”
