A genuine one-off and unforgettable
19 September 2000 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I have only seen this film once, and a few years back at that, in an imperfect video pirate copy (it is very hard to see at all, let alone uncut in the UK), but have never forgotten it. That's a hell of a lot more than I can say about many other films.

It's a brave perhaps prematurely postmodern, film, one which takes risks with taste and art as well as the audience's genre expectations - but which succeeds triumphantly. Wes 'Scream' Craven cold take some tips from a film which wears its self consciousness so lightly and its irony so affectingly!

What could easily have been forgettable trash actually transcends its origins to become something memorable and witty, commenting on the genre as well as confronting what is meant by 'good taste'. Despite every handicap Psychos in Love rises above its origins to become a deserved and disturbing cult classic whose reputation will grow and grow... a Z grade classic!
