Storyline

Video geek Shepard 'Shep' Franco (Dan Merriman) uncovers a 135 year old videotape on which mad scientist Artemis Winthrop (Phip Barbour) displays a machine he's invented, which he believes can bridge dimensions. With his buddies Kim (Irene Joseph), Dave (Rob Monkiewicz), and Heather (Diane Di Gregorio), Shep tracks down the machine despite warings of Winthrop's great-granddaughter, a wiccan named Amelia (Liz Hurley). Shep restores the machine and while video taping it in action, a horrible accident transforms him into the ultimate tapehead (while unleashing killer bugs from another dimension and a few walking corpses along the way). Shep kidnaps Heather to turn her into his monster bride and only the intervention of the mysterious Amelia can halt the madness. Written by Artist View Entertainment

What a Horror Fan Wants
3 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Everything Brett Piper does is pure gold (okay, maybe "Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell" left a little to be desired). I am never disappointed by his films, which can rarely be said about any filmmaker, let alone the low-budget, independent kind, who have to work a lot harder on their movies. And true to form, "Psyclops" is a great viewing experience. An inspired plot, talented actors, beautiful visuals--hey, this is as good as it gets, folks. The fun begins when an amateur videographer happens upon a lost dimension-bending machine and gets his video camera fused to his skull, turning from video geek to video freak (as the box will tell you). From there, it's awesome effects (Piper did stuff for Troma in his early days), big laughs, suspense, thrills, chills, and yes, even characters you're rooting for. In fact, this movie is put together so well, aspiring filmmakers should use it as reference material, especially for a horror project. Piper throws in everything and the kitchen sink, blending it together perfectly into a fine feast any horror fan will appreciate. I know I do. I'll stop there and leave you with a final thought: go rent this movie right now, emphasis on the right now part.
