PG: Psycho Goreman sequels? Director says distributors want follow-ups

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Writer/director Steven Kostanski's PG: Psycho Goreman (watch it HERE, read our 8/10 review HERE) is getting a theatrical, VOD, and Digital release tomorrow, January 22nd, and is almost certain to immediately earn a cult following. Drawing inspiration from sources like Star Wars, Power Rangers, and Masters of the Universe, as well as "kids befriend a strange creature" 1980s movies like E.T., Gremlins, and The Monster Squad, Kostanski creates a world with this film that could definitely be explored further in sequels and spin-offs. Luckily for Kostanski – and for the viewers who will soon be calling themselves Psycho Goreman fans – the film's distributors see the franchise potential.

During a conversation on Bloody Disgusting's Boo Crew Podcast, Kostanski said, 

The impression I’m getting is that I better jump on subsequent versions of Psycho Goreman. I have a plan I am working on – some kind of follow up, I can’t really get into what that will be yet because it’s so early – we kind of have to wait to see how the movie does. I’ve already – the distributors are all excited for follow-ups to this and they see the potential. I’ve slowly started hashing out what that might be. There will be future versions of PG, future adventures, we'll see what exactly that entails."

Kostanski went on to joke that the Psycho Goreman franchise has to last long enough to reach PG13.

Somehow we have to get to PG13 – whether it’s 11 more movies or 11 episodes of a TV show that get us to a 13th movie. We’ll see."

While we wait to see what the future of Psycho Goreman may hold, the film being released tomorrow follows 

two kids, Mimi and Luke, who discover the tomb of a sleeping alien warlord whose only goal is to destroy the entire universe. The children find the magical gemstone allowing them to control the creature and embark on a crazy adventure full of cosmic action and comedy.

Nita-Josee Hanna, Owen Myre, Alexis Kara Hancey, Adam Brooks, Kristen MacCulloch, and Matthew Ninaber star.
