In case you think horror films take themselves too seriously, check out PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN, an unexpected dark comedy. Written and directed by Steven Kostanski (The Void, The Divide, Father’s Day), the film turns the concept of “evil alien conqueror” on its head.
Siblings Mimi and Luke unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord who was entombed on Earth millions of years ago after a failed attempt to destroy the universe. They nickname the evil creature Psycho Goreman (or PG for short) and use the magical amulet they discovered to force him to obey their childish whims. It isn’t long before PG’s reappearance draws the attention of intergalactic friends and foes from across the cosmos and a rogues’ gallery of alien combatants converges in small-town suburbia to battle for the fate of the galaxy.
The film stars Nita-Josee Hanna (Books of Blood, 4teen), Owen Myre (“NOS4A2,” Alternate Ground), Adam Brooks (The Return, Father’s Day), Alexis Hancey (Silver Tongue), and Matthew Ninaber (Transference)
PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN will be available exclusively to stream on AMC’s Shudder beginning May 20.
