PG: Psycho Goreman is one of those unexpected treats that end up being far more than expected, and for the better. A horror-comedy has to hit all the right notes with me because I’m super picky about comedy, which puts me in a low expectations mood from the start (I hate comedies and rom-coms in general, so that’s a high bar to start with).
This movie is a throwback to the carefree 80s-90s horror films with outrageous plots and even more outrageous costumes and props, and is a fun ride because of it.
You know how much I love bonus features, and this one has over 2 hours of bonus features on the DVD and Blu-Ray including:
· Director Commentary
· One-on-One: An Interview with the Director of PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN
· Interviews with the Cast
· Interview with Adam Brooks
· Kortex: A Konversation
· The Music of PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN
· Fight Choreography
· Fight Pre-Viz
· Filming the Paladin Fight
· PG vs Pandora
· Miniature Magic
· Inside the Creature Shop
· Concept Art Gallery
· PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN Trading Cards Gallery
· Behind the Scenes Photo Gallery
The featurettes about the fight choreography and showing the work of the creature shop are a big plus for a fan of action movies and horror movies (like myself), and the music featurette about the music for the movie is fun, hearing how they created the soundtrack and what their inspiration for the 90s sound they wanted, down to the themes for each of the primary characters.
With the bonus features being longer than the movie itself, this Blu-ray is more than worth having. I would have laughed out loud if they’d included a nod to the Hunky Boy in-joke or an in-depth look at “crazy ball”, but the extras are still a fun time.
And don’t miss out on our interview with writer/director Steven Kostanski: “PG: Psycho Goreman”: Making horror-scifi fun again
PG: Psycho Goreman is available on DVD and Blu-ray on March 16, 2021.
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 delight and wacky fun of "PG: Psycho Goreman"
