Some trailers focus on grossing you out. The bloody mouths, the stumped limbs, the overall yuck factor of it all. Some trailers focus on sexual deviancy, up-skirt shots, copulating with members of the clergy or fornicating behind a butcher’s counter. The ambitious filmmakers behind Psycho Street decided to just go on ahead and throw it all into one pretty extreme trailer. Wow.

Psycho Street is a three-part anthology film starring Tiffany Shepis as the best looking version of the Crypt Keeper we’ve ever seen, welcoming you to the twisted town of Kronanburg where things … well, things tend to get fucked up. And even though the film has already been picked up by R-Squared for a 2012 release, we thought you’d like to be the first on your block to take an early look at this intriguing NSFW (that’s Not Safe For Work for you cubicle jockeys prowling the internet on company time) trailer.

About Psycho Street:
Welcome to the small town of Kronanburg. On the surface, this quaint, little town appears to be the perfect place to settle down, relax and raise a family…but the core of this seemingly “perfect” town is dark and vile…and the residents of this town live in a world of deranged insanity. In Kronanburg, terror lies behind every door and death is only a heart-beat away.

Join Kronanburg’s happy home-maker, Leyla Barker (Tiffany Shepis) as she leads you through three tales of murder and madness that can only come from the dark nightmares of life in this town…but beware, Leyla might just have a dark secret of her own!

Starting with Hypochondriac: When LA physician, Dr. Oliver Combs (Mary Blauvelt) trades in the stress of his big city medical practice for the “simple” life of practicing medicine in the small Kronanburg medical clinic, he may have gotten more than he bargained for…because the patients who frequent this clinic have problems far more bizarre than anything he encountered in LA, and he finds that he may have made the biggest mistake of his career…and his life. Hypochondriac was directed by Pete Jacelone and also stars Raine Brown, Alan Rowe Kelly, Carl Burrows, Susan Adriensen and Edward X. Young.

Next in No Rest for the Wicked: When the man of her dreams returns to town,a single, lonely young mother (Raine Brown), must make a difficult choice…and pay the devastating consequences of that choice for the rest of her life. No Rest for the Wicked was directed by Raine Brown and also stars Matt Bonacci and Joe Zasso.

Finally, in Lewis: when Amanda Reece (Deneen Melody) returns to Kronanburg with her young daughter, searching for clues to her past, she is startled that the residents of this town are very familiar with her…and seem to have sinister plans that involve she and her daughter. Lewis was directed by Anthony Sumner, and also stars Jerry Murdock, Susan Adriensen and Jason Hignite.

Psycho Street: Four twisted tales that lead to a DEAD END!

From the cover of Kyd's first Vermintide OST

Get your headphones ready, Warhammer fans because State of Decay and Darksiders 2 composer Jesper Kyd is back to score the upcoming Warhammer title Vermintide 2! The game will be coming to PC and consoles early this year.

Kyd was inspired by Norse mythology, utilizing ancient tribal music as well as dark fantastical elements to build upon the acoustic soundscapes he composed for the first Vermintide game. Channeling his own Scandinavian roots, Kyd will blend Viking and Norse-inspired vocals with ritualistic percussion styles to create a unique soundtrack experience.

Three tracks from the score can be heard below.

Like Me – Will You Like This Dystopian Thriller?

Published

on

Starring Addison Timlin, Ian Nelson, Larry Fessenden

Directed by Robert Mockler


While Like Me is not dystopian in the classic science-fiction sense, it does aptly put the downer vibe across. If the present is abysmal, then the future is downright hopeless. We learn this as we follow an unhinged teenage loner called Kiya (Addison Timlin) on a hollow crime spree that she broadcasts on social media. At first the world “likes” her—with the exception of YouTube rival Burt (Ian Nelson), who disdainfully denounces her viral videos—but pride goes before the fall, and Kiya’s descent is spectacular.

If you’ve peeped the trailer for Like Me, then you’re probably expecting a horror movie. I mean, they’ve got the requisite menacing masked baddie and they’ve got genre icon Larry Fessenden in a major role—those are a couple of the key ingredients, right? Yes they are, but this simmering, shimmering stew of Natural Born Killers, Excision and King Kelly, it boils down to a whole lotta nothing. Like Me is sort of a drama, kind of a road trip flick, and almost a thriller. It succeeds at none yet does stand on its own as a compelling collection of cool visuals and pertinent performances. But is that enough?

While Kiya is a compelling character on the surface, there’s barebones beneath. Sure, she’s a Millennial mind-fed on random online clips and snappy soundbites—but what turned her into a psychopath? Was she born that way? Is social media to blame? We’ll never know, because not a hint is given. I don’t mind ambiguity, but even a morsel would have been welcome in this case. As Kiya ramps up her reckless exhibitionistic extremes, the stakes are never raised. In the end, who cares? Maybe that’s the point.

A word of warning: If you plan on watching this movie while chomping snacks…don’t. There is stomach-turning scene after vomit-inducing scene of orgiastic easting, binging, and the inevitable purging. I’m sure it’s all metaphorical mastication, a cutting comment on disposable consumption. I get it. But I don’t wanna look at it, again and again and again. Having said that, Like Me is an experimental film and in its presentation of such grotesquery, it’s quite accomplished. Montages, split-screens and jittered motions are scattered throughout, showing us all sorts of unpleasant things…Kudos to the editor.

I didn’t hate Like Me. But I do think one has to be in the mood for a movie such as this. It’s not an easy or entertaining watch, but it is a peculiar and thought-provoking one. There’s some style and mastery behind the camera, and I am curious to see what first-time writer-director Rob Mockler comes up with next.
