While horror twitter has heard of Psycho Goreman, there's a strong chance that the rest of the world hasn't gotten there quite yet. It's not the type of film that would ever get the accolades it deserves under normal circumstances. But, one small silver lining to this whole pandemic situation has been independent films like this one have been given an opportunity to shine. Folks like to dig on January horror even when it's not largely indie content, but rest assured—Psycho Goreman is a delight.
Cool, so where can I stream Psycho Goreman?
Psycho Goreman will hit the horror streaming service, Shudder, on May 20th, 2021. In the meantime, you can currently find the film on every major streaming platform to rent for $5.99. If you're looking to purchase the film, Amazon and Vudu currently have it listed for $14.99.
If you're fine with waiting until the film hits Shudder, you'll be able to stream Psycho Goreman and the rest of the streamer's impressive horror library for unlimited watches. Unlimited streaming for six bucks (or four if you go with the annual plan) vs. a two day rental feels like a no-brainer so long as you're willing to wait.
The film will also be available in theaters on the same day. While we still don't recommend folks go into enclosed buildings right now, if you can find it at a drive-in near you it is absolutely worth seeing on the biggest screen possible. It's huge, silly nature is peak drive-in content! Hit the Fandango link above to find tickets. Also note that they don't have an exhaustive network of drive-ins since so many of them are just pop-ups. So, if you don't see something immediately in the link, just do a quick google search of "drive-ins in my area" to find out if it's playing near you!
What's Psycho Goreman about?
Oh, I'm so glad you asked! Psycho Goreman follows two children's misadventures after they stumble upon an intergalactic murder monster named Arch-Duke Of Nightmares. Mimi (Nita-Josee Hanna) decides that she doesn't care for that silly of a name, so she and her brother Luke (Owen Myre) workshop a new one: Psycho Goreman.
Why does an intergalactic murder monster listen to two children, you wonder? Well, because Mimi possesses the Gem Of Praxidike, of course. If all of that sounds like hot nonsense, it's because it is. And that hot nonsense is exactly what makes this silly, action-packed adventure the delightful ride that it is. You can tell your musical loving friends that there are one or two moments in there for them as well!
