All Jacked Up and Full of Worms trailer is creepy and weird

In the realm of entertainment journalism, you’ll eventually come across a trailer that words simply fail to adequately describe. Such is the case with All Jacked Up and Full of Worms, a new horror movie that’s anything but conventional. Going from the footage alone, you might think it’s about some weird dude who treats a plastic model of a baby like it’s a real child before he ventures out on a quest to kidnap some poor lady to be the mother. There’s definitely some of that in there, but we defy you to make sense of what you’re about to see without the proper context.

Now, here’s the context, as far as we can tell. The bearded baby-craving guy is named Benny, and the other leading man is named Roscoe. For clarification, Roscoe is the one lying down between his wife on the right, and a strange man she came home with on the left. Needless to say, Benny and Roscoe aren’t exactly happy with their lives, but they love getting high on worms. In this world, worms can be consumed and enjoyed as recreational hallucinogenic drugs. When Benny and Roscoe meet and fall in love with each other, it’s happening in part because of the joy they share when they’re getting high off of the worms. But their addictions will ultimately destroy them.

Glorious is a horror movie set in a public bathroom, and its director is OK if you call her weird
A bloody Ryan Kwaten looking into the mirror in a scene from Glorious.

In a world where franchises and IP dominate Hollywood, Glorious is about to inject some much-needed originality into the community. Directed by Rebekah McKendry, Glorious is a Lovecraftian horror film that predominantly takes place in a public restroom. When Wes (Ryan Kwanten), a depressed and heartbroken individual, finds himself inside a bathroom after a night of drinking, a godlike voice (J.K. Simmons) in the other stall begins to converse with him about his mistakes and regrets. The voice traps Wes inside the bathroom and demands a sacrifice through the glory hole in the stall or else he will face cataclysmic consequences.

As McKendry states, a horror about a glory hole may not be for everyone, but she can proudly say that it's "something you have never seen before." Glorious is a philosophical exploration of an imperfect man grappling with the mistakes in his life. In an interview with Digital Trends, McKendry reveals the advice her mother gave her about filmmaking, why "weird" is a good thing, and how she convinced Kwanten and Simmons to join the project.
