Hoff’s Horrorfest Presents: PSYCHO II!

February 20, 2015

Psycho IIHoff’s Horrorfest is a monthly show featuring stand-up comedy from me (Hoff Matthews) and a guest performer, followed by a horror movie screening. It’s free and BYOB. This month’s installment will be at 9:30pm, Friday, February 27th, at Brit Pack (3rd floor, 153 Lafayette, Manhattan).

This month’s guest performer: Lukas Kaiser (SPIKE TV, HP5000)

This month’s movie: Psycho II (1983)

The very idea of Psycho II seems like a joke, like a gag from 30 Rock or one of the Scream sequels. Its 1960 Hitchcock predecessor is so sacred to both film buffs generally and horror fans specifically that the concept of a follow-up–let alone one released twenty-three years later, with a new director and in a vastly transformed pop cultural context–appears so obviously misguided and doomed to failure that it could only exist as a satirical indictment of Hollywood’s creative bankruptcy.
