Kickstart Sunday: PSYCHOTIC!

  • Save
Continuing our Kickstart Sunday Halloween celebration, this week’s pick is the throwback psychedelic slasher Psychotic! from Maxwell Frey and Derek Gibbons. Psychotic! draws influence from Italian horror films of the ’70s, but is a contemporary story taking place in Bushwick, Brooklyn involving two friends who are not only struggling to pay the rent but struggling for their own lives when a psycho killer begins offing everyone around them.

As a lover of Italian giallo films and someone who frequents that neighborhood on the regular, I’m pretty excited to check this one out and you should be too so click here and send a donation their way! This Kickstarter campaign currently has 24 days remaining (as of this article) and has a project goal of $50,000.


The rent is high but the body count is higher in this suspenseful horror slasher that follows two struggling artists, Tim and Stuart, as they try to patch up what’s left of their friendship, pay the damn rent on time, and search for love at some of the hottest hot spots in Bushwick. But instead, they stumble into a world of murder, mystery, and madness that might cost them both more than $1400 a month… it’ll cost them their LIVES. It’s up to Tim and Stuart to figure out who keeps killing the life of the party – no easy task when all of your friends are PSYCHOTIC!

Here’s the first scene from the film:
