On the eve of its VOD release, Nitehawk presents PSYCHOTIC!, a wild horror film about a group of hard-partying Brooklyn hipsters who are stalked and savagely murdered by a masked maniac known as the Bushwick Party Killer.
As if paying their ridiculous $1,400-a-month rent in Bushwick wasn’t bad enough, struggling artists Tim and Stuart can’t even enjoy the Brooklyn party scene without stumbling across mutilated bodies and a homicidal maniac’s reign of terror. The hardest fact of all to accept, though, is that the maniac is most likely one of their friends. With that whodunit set-up and their intimately authentic use of their hometown Bushwick setting, co-directors Maxwell Frey and Derek Gibbons turn Brooklyn into a giallo-inspired nightmare in this stylish and corpse-ridden ode to slasher movies. – Brooklyn Horror Film Festival
