Beloved by horror fans and rife with sequel potential, we sure would love to see more Psycho Goreman down the road, but does the creator/director of the film feel the same way?
Chatting with Bloody Disgusting’s The Boo Crew Podcast, Psycho Goreman director Steven Kostanski provides some exclusive tidbits about the future of the badass character.
“I want to follow that up with something that delivers, and so the more people love the movie and want more from it, the more I’m like ‘oh shit, I’ve gotta deliver a thing.’ And I’m trying,” Kostanski explains. “I’m working on it. It’s surprisingly complicated trying to get this off the ground. Sequel issues… rights and things. Just trying to make all the things line up, and also just find the time to sit down and write the damn thing. I hope to get something going soon.”
He continues, “In the meantime, there is our comic book Kickstarter from Lethal Comics that we have going right now. That should whet people’s appetite for PG in a pretty satisfying way. It’s an anthology comic that is kind of referencing those Star Wars anthology novels from the ’90s. This is like all the stories that the Galactic Council has with all their near misses with PG. It takes place during the movie. It’s like the Council is sitting there waiting for stuff to happen with Pandora, and they’re all passing the time… each character goes off on a crazy wild story.”

Written and directed by Steven Kostanski (The Void, The Divide, Father’s Day), Psycho Goreman stars Nita-Josee Hanna (Books of Blood), Owen Myre (“NOS4A2”), Adam Brooks (Father’s Day), Alexis Hancey (Silver Tongue), and Matthew Ninaber (Transference).
In the first movie, now streaming on Shudder…
“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.”
