PG (Psycho Goreman) is a 2020 Canadian comedy horror feature film about a pair of kids that unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord.
Written and directed by Steven Kostanski (Leprechaun Returns; The Void; Manborg; et al), the movie stars Matthew Ninaber, Kristen MacCulloch, Adam Brooks and Reece Presley.
As the trailer below suggests, the ‘R’-rated PG (Psycho Goreman) is crammed with practical special effects that recall ’80s efforts such as The Gate (also Canadian) and Beastmaster 2. Kostanski has also cited Masters of the Universe as an influence.
Mimi (Nita-Josée Hanna) and Luke (Owen Myre), are a perpetually bickering sister/brother duo who unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord (Matt Ninaber) who’s been entombed in their backyard. The pair nickname the malevolent creature Psycho Goreman (or PG for short) who thanks to their possession of a magical amulet is forced to obey their childish whims.
It appears the same goes for the rest of the galaxy as PG’s reappearance on Earth draws the attention of interstellar friends and fiends from across the cosmos. It isn’t long before a rogues’ gallery of galactic combatants converges on the strange realm of small-town suburbia…
PG (Psycho Goreman) was due to premiere at the South By South-West (SXSW) festival -as a part of the Midnight section on Friday the 13th of March 2020, however, due to the pandemic that didn’t happen. The movie has been acquired by RLJE Films and Shudder and will stream on the latter on January 22nd 2021.
“PG: Psycho Goreman is a perfect movie for all of us who grew up in a video store,” said RLJE Films chief acquisitions officer Mark Ward. “It has so much heart, thrills and fun that we believe this could be a franchise. We love this movie.”
A late 2020 theatrical release is planned, thereafter Shudder will premiere the film on its streaming service in early 2021.
