The loose and wacky splatter comedy "Psychos in Love" isn't quite perfect for what it is, as it gets dull in places and some scenes simply go on too long. But when this movie hits the mark, it's a riot. It satirizes the slasher film while also supplying enough female flesh to keep its audience happy and delivering some major gut busting laughs. It's at its brightest when playing with the conventions of filmmaking. It makes sure to remind us that we're watching a movie and has some terrific moments of fourth wall breaking.
One senses that this was a labour of love; various cast members also work behind the camera. Star Carmine Capobianco composed the silly, often hilarious music score, and was on the special effects team. And his leading lady Debi Thibeault designed the costumes. The two play Joe and Kate, a bar / strip club owner and manicurist respectively, who each has the bad habit of murdering the people that they date. When they meet, and confess to each other their big secrets, it's a case of true love. And while this is going on, an incredibly creepy plumber named Herman (Frank Stewart, who also did the hair and makeup) regularly kills his customers and then eats them. You know it's just a matter of time before his path crosses that of Joe and Kate.
There are some truly wonderful moments; one occurs around the 25 minute mark and another takes place close to the end. You'll know them when you see them. Capobianco and Thibeault are an engaging pair. Among the ladies delivering the goods are Cecilia Wilde, Ruth Collins, LeeAnn Baker, Angela Nicholas, and Patti Chambers. The (lack of a) budget may be evident at all times, but this is hardly an issue as the cast and crew have a hell of a time, and show their viewers a good time in the process.
Capobianco co-wrote the playful screenplay with Gorman Bechard, who directed, shot, and edited the movie as well.
If you love good trash, a good comedy, and the prospect of filmmaking in general, you should find this quirky gem to be quite a hoot.
Eight out of 10.
