episode 284: Psycho Goreman (2020/2021)

Happy Halloween!  This time, we're joined by Tom and Trev to talk about the Canadian sci-fi/horror/comedy Psycho Goreman!  Directed by Steven Kostanski (of the cult film collective Astron-6), and inspired by 80s fantasy, Japanese superhero shows and 90s family films, it tells the story of Psycho Goreman (aka PG), an alien warlord who falls to Earth and becomes controlled by a sociopathic little girl.  While PG is playing dodgeball and turning kids into tentacled brain creatures, he has to fend off a rogues gallery of tokusatsu inspired monsters and learn the power of love along the way.  We'll also talk about the history of Canadian filmmaking collective Astron 6.  How does this gore soaked genre mashup fare?  Listen and find out!
