The rent is high but the body count is higher in PSYCHOTIC!, a suspenseful psychedelic slasher that follows a group of hard-partying Brooklyn hipsters as they’re stalked and savagely murdered by a masked maniac known as the Bushwick Party Killer.
It’s up to struggling artists Tim and Stuart to figure out who keeps killing the life of the party. Blood-soaked mayhem ensues as our heroes barely make the rent on time, search for love (in all the wrong places), and try to salvage their friendship – all while trying to unravel the mystery and stay one step ahead of the next massacre.
Written, directed, and produced by Maxwell Frey and Derek Gibbons, PSYCHOTIC! has been slashing through the festival circuit, including wins 2017 Cannabis Film Festival – Winner | Best Feature, 2017 Upstate NY Horror Film Festival – Winner | Best Feature, and 2017 Lost Sanity & Sci-Fi Film Fest – Winner | Best Actress – Kristen Martin. The film was also an official selection of 2017 Scare-A-Con Film Festival, 2016 Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, and 2016 PDXtreme Film Festival.
The opening sequence alone is enough to hook you in. With amazing cinematography by James Demetri and Brian Stansfield and an amazing soundtrack, the original score for Psychotic! was written and performed by lazing Galaxies, a synth-wave band from Brooklyn, NY featuring Tom Starkweather and Mark Thyrring.
The film stars Kristen Martin, Clint Keepin, Cirocco Dunlap, Maria Wojciechowski, Dani Grace, Adam Maid, Rafael Cruz, Chris Prine, Aldous Davidson and Rachel Laforest.
