Psycho Goreman came out of nowhere and kinda knocked us all back here at iHorror. It’s a film that has been on heavy repeat since its release and now, you can bring home the blu-ray to impress your mom or grandpa all the time all on your own. For us, picking up this disc was a big no brainer. The film was a already one that hilariously defied logic with its gory combo of Power Rangers as well as its other big Japanese influences. The big hero at it’s center isn’t an every day hero considering he is an ancient being from the cosmos that has destroyed multiple worlds, but Psycho Goreman manages to do all of that in a lovable way.
The official synopsis for Psycho Goreman goes like this:
“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 result is something mutant that manages to exist as a kids film and as a big gory adult film. In fact, its a lot like a lot of 80s movies I watched and loved as a kid were. It exists in its own little cosmos.
I think a main part of what makes Psycho Goreman such a must see and own is its home grown feel. But, not in anything cheap looking at all. Instead, its homegrown abilities are shown in its amazing practical effect abilities. There is a scene in the film in which PG has to take on a handful of his old homies in a battle to the death. Each of the characters are crafted with care and a Troma born genius. Each of them so carefully crafted that they could have each had their own films within this world if given a chance in a Goreman expanded universe. It speaks to the fact that the film is undoubtedly awesome in every way possible.
