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.

Also, who is letting their 4, 5, and 7 year old children watch this? Misguided. Take one look at the cover. It's called "Psycho Goreman," with a menacing creature front-and-center, who claims he "will bathe in your blood." The quote on the cover at the bottom is obviously meant to be tongue-in-cheek, for those who don't have the ability to pick up on that sort of thing. The quote on the back says it's 'absurd genre cinema.' It's put out by Shudder, who specialize in horror. They have an entire streaming service devoted to it. The rating is NOT RATED. When a horror movie has not been rated by the MPAA, more often than not, it is beyond an 'R.' And no, PG is not the rating, it's short for Psycho Goreman, specifically stated in the synopsis. I mean, I have no more words for this.
I saw the trailer for Psycho Goreman, and knew I immediately had to see it. Rarely does a movie live up to its trailer. Well, this one sure does. It is outrageous, offensive, and hilarious. And creative. And is full of wild, imaginative creatures. And it's gory! Really, the complete package if you're into wild cinema. The creatures are inventive. The walking cauldron of body parts it collects from battles, then shoots blood out of its cannons has got to be my favorite. Take one look at the picture of the little girl on the back cover, and you should know what you're in for with the lead character. Mimi (played by Nita-Josee Hanna) is thoroughly obnoxious, sassy, and amoral. She is a riot, and has immediately become one of my favorite horror movie characters. She's playing a game with her brother at the beginning of the movie where the loser gets buried (and guess who that is). If you're into this sort of thing, it really is a great deal of fun.
I've seen 4 of Steven Kostanski's previous movies, and frankly, I didn't think the guy could put together 90 solid minutes. The closest he came was the demented, clever, outrageous final 30 of Father's Day (preceded by an hour of dull). I was definitely gun shy, but after seeing that intriguing trailer, I was willing to give him one more shot. I think he finally got it right. 5 stars.
Some will complain about the special effects. I would counter that they do exactly what they set out to do. Yes, some of the creature effects in this movie look like they were cobbled together on a shoestring budget, but the fact that other effects look as good as they do (and the gore effects in particular are often marvelous) indicates that the filmmakers deliberately left some of the effects the way they are specifically to preserve the film's nostalgic appearance.
Others will complain about some of the acting. Indeed, I was going to do the same when I first started watching it, but I quickly realized that there's not actually any bad acting in this movie. Instead, there is a cast of brilliant actors masterfully capturing the nuances of some of the acting we all grew up watching in midnight movies.
No, not all of the jokes hit as well as I might have liked, but overall, this is a masterful recreation of everything we know and love about the cheesy movies we grew up watching. If you didn't grow up watching those movies, you might not get it. But if you did, I think you'll find this a worthy homage.
Being bored and unimpressed and in many downright annoyed with the vast majority of movies in this century this movie proved a considerable relief.
The story and plot offers the most original concept in 20 odd years. The creature designs are cuts above anything that I have seen in so long. Both the animatronic puppets and the costumes are great works of art that I think the late Jim Henson would be blown away by. The lip-syncs are also welkl done. The gore effects while not perfect still get the job done. The fight choreography is lots of fun to watch. Finally the humor is completely welcome and is very clever.
