PSYCHOS IN LOVE SYNOPSIS:
Joe (Carmine Capobianco) runs a strip club and Kate (Debi Thibeault) is an attractive manicurist. After bonding over their mutual dislike of grapes, they discover another commonality: both of them are bloodthirsty serial killers. Gorman Bechard’s PSYCHOS IN LOVE is an absurd, home grown horror-comedy, which alternates between gratuitous killing scenes and self-aware parody of romantic comedies.
PSYCHOS IN LOVE: REVIEW
Written by VHS
“Psychos in Love” is a must-see for any fan of 80s horror. Directed by Gorman Bechard and written by Bechard and Carmine Capobianco, the film is dripping with 80s style and charm. The plot centers around Joe and Kate, two psychopaths who fall in love and go on a killing spree together. As they bond over their shared love of murder and dismemberment, the audience is taken on a wild ride filled with gore, humor, and some surprisingly sweet moments.
The film is not only a love letter to 80s horror, but also a clever parody of the genre. Bechard and Capobianco play with the audience’s expectations, subverting tropes, and poking fun at horror movie cliches. The performances are delightfully over-the-top, with Capobianco and Mary Hunter stealing the show as the deranged couple at the film’s center. The film’s low budget only adds to its charm, with inventive camera work and practical effects that are both impressive and hilarious.
A beautiful scan from the original 16mm film negative of “Psychos in Love”. Fans of cult cinema will appreciate the opportunity to experience this gem in all its gorey glory (say that 3 times fast). It’s a perfect addition to any horror lover’s collection and a must-watch for anyone looking for a fun and bloody ride through 80s nostalgia.
