Editorial Reviews

Having no luck with his music, Tom (Michael Hampton) finds work as a caretaker for an old mansion. He cleans the house, and in doing so discovers something rather odd: a human hand growing out of the basement floor. Over time, the hand develops into an arm and eventually a head sprouts. The Growth aka Archie (Ryan Sterling) quickly became friends with Tom. Tom also finds himself involved romantically with his neighbor’s (Chase Hemphill) mysterious girlfriend, Veronica (Devon Iott). Tom continues his secret relationship with Veronica despite the danger of getting caught. But he never suspects it will be Archie who gives him away or how violent the consequences can be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uh! Uh! Uh! August 17, 2009
By PR GUY
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm not really sure how to review this flick. I expected a horror movie, which is my forte', but I got a bizarre psychedelic transformation into unexplained worlds of cosmic mystification. Does my first sentence make sense? Of course not...and neither does this film from the get-go. It is a "trip"...definitely one you may want to nurture a bottle of wine (or whiskey) to be your movie theater date. Don't get me wrong, I liked it because it was different. However, movie-goers will probably not be able to equate the artwork on the DVD case to anything that transpires on the DVD. I gave it 3 stars because I'm still seeing stars. What the heck did I just watch? I don't know! Who's on first?

5.0 out of 5 stars It keeps growing on me! January 14, 2009
Format:DVD
After much anticipation, I sat down for a private screening of Growing Out: I loved it!

Brilliant writing and acting. You'll feel a little nauseated, a little disappointed in the characters, and a little happy - all at the same time! It's not a feel good, leave numb movie. It's a movie you'll want to talk about after it ends, even if you are sitting around and everyone else is doing the talking.

Favorites: I grew attached to the gnome for some comic relief. A hand growing out of the basement - just as creepy as it sounds. I loved Archie's innocent energy and was captivated by Veronica's song in the tree.

A little comedy, romance, horror, fantasy, musical all in one! An absolute must see!

3.0 out of 5 stars Odd, but not weird March 19, 2014
Format:DVD
I picked this little movie up at the local video store because it looked different and weird, and I love that type of stuff. I had it awhile but didn't watch it, finally gave it a shot last night. The reviews I've seen so far about this movie I feel are very misleading. I wish it was this super out there, trippy, make you think about it for days after watching. However, this film is a just about as standard a love movie that there can be. Well, maybe not. There definitely is some odd aspects to Growing Out, and there were some humorous moments (mostly in the beginning) that got me excited that I found a true underground gem. Unfortunately, it didn't continue that way for very long. One thing that really bothered me about it was the main character, what a jerk!! And for some reason the love interest completely falls head over heels for him when he had done nothing but be a (#^&*) to everyone throughout the film. And without spoiling too much what he does in the basement toward the end made me want to turn the movie off. Perhaps I just didn't understand it, I'm not a musician. I don't know, I really wanted to like this movie. I guess I wanted something totally different, bizarre, cosmic-trippy, incoherent, just an awesome jumbled mess. Instead Growing Out plays out more like a soap opera, with a one-armed guitar player.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely makes you think! January 14, 2009

This is definitely a movie that makes you think. Some gruesome parts, but not necessarily scary - a little more suspenseful than anything else. Would for sure recommend this movie!
