The ’80s were a ridiculous time when filmmakers were ambitious, but often forced to work within the constraints of meager budgets. That’s how we ended up with movies like Masters of the Universe, where, to save money, He-Man is magically transported from Grayskull to Earth.
Steven Kostanski is seeking to recapture some of that ’80s magic with PG: Psycho Gorman. In the film, which is available today on DVD and Blu-ray, a young girl named Mimi and her brother Luke awakens an ancient alien warrior and force him to do their bidding.
We talked to Kostanski about his inspirations for Psycho Goreman, PG’s love of “hunky boys” and what it’s been like releasing the film during a pandemic.
