Siblings Mimi and Luke unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord. Using a magical amulet, they force the monster to obey their childish whims, and accidentally attract a rogues' gallery of intergalactic assassins to small-town suburbia.
The full PG makeup took many hours to apply, often requiring Matthew Ninaber to be the first person to arrive for shooting and the last to leave. He spent so much time in the costume that the crew failed to recognize him without it and would even call security on him. See more »
After having seen the trailer for the 2020 movie "Psycho Goreman", I must admit that I was definitely looking forward to watching this movie. Why? Well, because it seemed like a fun horror comedy that paid heavy homage to the horror movies of the 1980s, the movies that I grew up watching.
And when I had the chance to sit down to watch "Psycho Goreman", I jumped at that chance immediately. And I must say that writer and director Steven Kostanski didn't fail to deliver. This movie was exactly as I had hoped from what I saw in the trailer.
Yup, an over-the-top and hilarious horror comedy that felt very much like something you'd see in the 1980s. Even the costumes and props felt like something from way back then, and it worked out so nicely for the movie.
The storyline was pretty straight forward, but the creature that become known as Psycho Goreman was really the star of the movie, as he was just brilliant. I mean, taking a galactic evil overlord with the power to annihilate planets and put him at the mercy at pre-teenagers, it was just a blast. There were so many funny scenes throughout the course of this movie.
Visually then "Psycho Goreman" was also a walk down memory lane, back to the glory days of the 1980s. Lots of practical effects made like back in the day, so it was pure nostalgia. But it worked well for the movie, and added a great and unique touch to the movie as a whole.
Now, I will say that younger audiences might not particularly find enjoyment in Steven Kostanski's "Psycho Goreman". But if you grew up on 1980s horror movies and enjoyed those, then "Psycho Goreman" is definitely right up your alley.
I was more than genuinely entertained by this movie, and it was a great and fun movie to watch. I can warmly recommend that you take the time to sit down to watch the 2020 movie "Psycho Goreman".
My rating of "Psycho Goreman" lands on a well-deserved six out of ten stars.
