"PSYCHO GOREMAN is the complete package. Ripe with huge laughs, it bolsters massive creativity that would make the studio system blush and comes with enough gore to flood an abattoir. This is the kind of genre cinema that we dream of." –  Screen Anarchy 

"PG’s premise is like E.T. mixed with THE TERMINATOR, executed with the ‘80s nostalgia of STRANGER THINGS." – That Shelf
