Hipsters get hacked in PSYCHOTIC!, a slasher movie set in Bushwick, Brooklyn that’s headed for release later this month. Jump past the jump for more info and an exclusive look at the trailer.
Written and directed by Maxwell Frey and Derek Gibbons, who have acting roles in the movie as well, PSYCHOTIC! stars Kristen Martin, Clint Keepin, Cirocco Dunlap, Maria Wojciechowski, Dani Grace, Adam Maid, Rafael Cruz, Chris Prine, Aldous Davidson and Rachel Laforest. It’s been praised on the festival circuit for its giallo stylings and Sabrina Rose’s bloody practical effects; the synopsis: “Two struggling artists, Tim and Stuart, try to patch up what’s left of their friendship, pay the damn rent on time and search for love at 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 $1,400 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!”
The film will be available on the following VOD platforms on Friday, January 26: iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Vudu, Sony PSN and Xbox.
