From The Press Release

RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, and Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, have acquired US rights to the action/comedy PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN. RLJE Films is planning to release the film in theaters in late 2020 and Shudder will premiere the film on its platform in early 2021. 

Written and directed by Steven Kostanski (The Void), PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN stars Matthew Ninaber (Transference), Nita-Josee Hanna (Books of Blood), Owen Myre (“NOS4A2”) and Adam Brooks (The Editor).

PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN is a perfect movie for all of us who grew up in a video store,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer for RLJE Films. “It has so much heart, thrills and fun that we believe this could be a franchise. We love this movie!”

PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN is the feel good splatterfest we need right now,” said Emily Gotto, Director of Global Acquisitions & Co-Productions for Shudder. “Brimming with blood and charm, PG proves Steven Kostanski’s imagination is unstoppable and we’re thrilled for Shudder members to meet the monsters, and especially, Mimi.”

In PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN, siblings Mimi and Luke unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord. Using a magical amulet, they force the monster to obey their childish whims, and accidentally attract a rogues’ gallery of intergalactic assassins to small-town suburbia.

“The Shudder library is home to many of the horror films that inspired me to make PG,” observed Kostanski, “so it’s a surreal thrill to be working with both RLJE Films and Shudder to bring the evil might of PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN to their audiences”.

PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN was produced by Kostanski, Stuart F. Andrews, Shannon Hanmer (ABCs of Death 2), Jesse Kristensen and the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness programmer Peter Kuplowsky (The Interior, Climate of the Hunter). Ward and Jess DeLeo from RLJE Films and Gotto from Shudder negotiated the deal with Carole Baraton and Pauline Boucheny from Charades on behalf of the filmmakers.

I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
