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.

Why The Dark Knight is still the best comic book movie of all time
The Joker and Batman sit across from one another at a table.

Let's travel back to 2008 and revisit pop culture, shall we? The most popular TV show in the country was American Idol. Studio comedies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall could still gross over $100 million at the box office. Plus, superhero fatigue did not exist, which is the perfect segue into our conversation about the best comic book movie of all time, The Dark Knight.

Fifteen years ago today, The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan's highly-anticipated sequel to Batman Begins, hit theaters in the U.S. For a film billed as the event of the summer, The Dark Knight managed to exceed expectations and change the entire industry. A comic book movie centered around a caped crusader and a villain wearing clown makeup forced the Academy to nominate more films for Best Picture. This is the same Academy that somehow awarded Crash Best Picture. Yet, it bent the knee to a Batman movie.

All The Purge movies, ranked from worst to best
Two intruders with masks on hold up weapons in The Purge.

In 2013, James DeMonaco wrote and directed The Purge, an action horror film with an interesting question at the center of its premise: what if crime was legal? For 12 hours, all crime is legal, including murder, and all emergency services are suspended. Set in a dystopian future, The Purge depicts a wealthy family fighting to defend themselves against a group of sadistic murderers on Purge Night.

The Purge exploded at the box office, making an impressive $89 million against a $3 million budget. The massive success of The Purge spawned four sequels and two seasons of a television show. The film also started the partnership between Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions with Universal Pictures, a relationship that still lasts in 2023. To commemorate the 10th anniversary, we ranked The Purge movies from worst to best, which you can find below.
