Goofs

When the killer attacks the rock star (in the final massacre-scene), he has a knife in his right hand when they fall to the ground. The knife is no longer there when the killer lifts the rock star by pulling his arms. In the next shot the knife is back in the killer's hand, while he is holding the knife and the rockstar's arm with the same hand. See more »

A lot of the right ingredients were there but hampered by a low budget and some wooden acting this fails to make an impact.
17 August 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

'Psychosis' is an example of a movie that I'm sure read brilliantly on page. The story is there, old English house, horror writer retreat; descent into madness, at times it reminded me of the Demi Moore film 'Half Light' although that's an example of how it should be done. The setting of 'Psychosis' is spot on creating a country atmosphere similar to 'Watcher in the woods'. However hampered by wooden acting (save for its two leads) and stilted dialogue, it's hard to warm to the characters or become engaged in the story.

Charisma Carpenter and Paul Sculfor are both easy to watch and had they been given a slightly bigger budget, tweaked dialogue and better surrounding actors then this could have been a winner. There is some chilling vision in the film (notably the tent scene at the start with the man licking the feet, cryptic I know but I don't want to spoil anything) but that vision seems to fade into clichés very quickly. There is a twist, it's a small one but unique and again showed potential for something better.

I watched this because I am a Charisma Carpenter fan so to other fans out there I will say its better than Scyfy's awful 'House of Bones', so if it comes down to the two watch this one.
