Just as Rocky thinks the world is proceeding along quite well, he dashes out of his shop in a kind of trance, as though possessed. Once outside he is driven to hunt for a victim and after he has found someone, he kills them with whatever forces are latent in his subconscious. Written by Ørnås

Good Badness #2: How to lose your mind and gain super-psychic abilities.
3 December 2009 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

Stop experimenting with drugs, kids. Al you need is... a good mixture of shampoo & hair lotion. At least, according to this movie. A depressed barber starts drinking his own products and becomes... Psychotronic Man! The walls of his sanity come crumbling down also, but I guess that's just a minor side-effect.

Oh yes, this is a fairly inept film featuring lousy acting and a lot of filler-footage. Many scenes get padded with various songs and even a car chase manages to be too long and uneventful. But nevertheless, the look & feel of the film drips with vintage retro-ness, the soundtrack is cool and the whole film feels like a bad acid trip you can't get out of. It's actually a fun flick to watch, when in the right state of mind. Another way to watch this film, is by simply turning off the sound, and mixing your favorite late 70's & early 80's psychedelic rock tunes to it. The editor (Bill Reese) shows us this can be fun, as the car chase sequence already features cuts to the rhythm of a groovy soundtrack.

An out-of-the-ordinary, experimental piece of independent drivel. It really feels as unique as it looks inept. Lovers of obscure cult cinema should give it a watch. I watched about 13 films (which we expected to suck badly) in two days, and "The Psychotronic Man" was one of two that actually stood out or proved to be more memorable (and better) than most of the other ones.

Good Badness? Oh yes, even for half of the right reasons. 5/10 and 8/10
