Shudder is getting an infusion of alien-induced carnage next month, as PG: Psycho Goreman is set to stream exclusively through the service. Shudder announced on Monday that the Steven Kostanski film will arrive on May 20th and will be the only only subscription service that will carry the film in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

The film is an example of films that have been able to shine in part due to the pandemic and the greater focus on home viewing. It hit theaters and VOD in January and has been a critical and commercial success, garnering great reviews and making an early mark among the top independent-grossing films of the year. Kostanski wrote and directed the film, which is a throwback to 1980s midnight madness movies and stars Nita-Josee Hanna, Owen Myre, Adam Brooks, Alexis Hancey, and Matthew Ninaber.

The film is described as follows:

In PG: Psycho Goreman, siblings Mimi and Luke unwittingly resurrect an ancient alien overlord who was entombed on Earth millions of years ago after a failed attempt to destroy the universe. They nickname the evil creature Psycho Goreman (or PG for short) and use the magical amulet they discovered to force him to obey their childish whims. It isn’t long before PG’s reappearance draws the attention of intergalactic friends and foes from across the cosmos and a rogues’ gallery of alien combatants converges in small-town suburbia to battle for the fate of the galaxy.
