RLJE Films and Shudder have picked up the rights for PG: Psycho Goreman, a horror-comedy from writer/director Steven Kostanski (The Void).
The film was supposed to have its big premiere at this year’s SXSW festival. Unfortunately, the festival was one of many ultimately cancelled due to concerns over Covid-19.
In the film, siblings Mimi (Nita-Josee Hanna) and Luke (Owen Myre) accidentally resurrect an alien overlord (Matthew Ninaber) with a mystical amulet. The amulet gives them power over the alien and they force him to carry out their every whim. Unfortunately, this causes no end of mischief and ends up attracting galaxy-wide attention, drawing other aliens to earth.
According to Deadline, RLJE Films hopes to give the film a theatrical release in late 2020 with a debut on Shudder to follow in 2021.
“PG: Psycho Goreman is a perfect movie for all of us who grew up in a video store,” RLJE Films chief acquisitions officer Mark Ward told Deadline. “It has so much heart, thrills and fun that we believe this could be a franchise. We love this movie.”
