Splatter Comedy Psycho Goreman Gets 2021 Release Date

The ’80s themed horror comedy Psycho Goreman was set to premiere at the South By Southwest festival back in January, but the festival was unfortunately cancelled at short notice. Thankfully, the movie was picked up for distribution in May, and it was now been confirmed that it will release in January.

As reported by Bloody Disgusting, the Psycho Goreman will hit theaters and on-demand platforms on January 22, 2021. The site has also revealed a very cool new poster that has been designed for the movie’s screening at Beyond Fest in Los Angeles on October 7. The film will also hit the streaming service Shudder at some point in 2021.

Psycho Goreman is directed by Steven Kostanski, who is part of the Astron-6 horror production company and previously helmed the acclaimed 2017 film The Void. The movie mixes family comedy, superhero hijinks, and splattery horror, and tells the story of two kids who befriend a huge, terrifying creature named PG. They get to play baseball with him, but unfortunately, he’s also partial to tearing people’s heads off, as you can see in the movie’s trailer.

In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Kostanski spoke about the influences on the film. “The core concept of Psycho Goreman is something I’ve carried with me for as long as I can remember,” he said. “What would it be like to have your own monster? As a kid, I was mesmerized by the relationship between John Connor and the T-800 in Terminator 2 and the way this relatable kid could suddenly have a badass villain as his pal.

“I would fantasize about hanging out with the likes of Skeletor, Megatron, Cobra Commander, and every other Saturday morning cartoon villain. These characters always interested me more than the traditional heroes. I love contrasting operatic space fantasy with suburban banality. I enjoy subverting the safe space of the ‘kids movie’ genre with shocking violence and real world consequences.”
