Peripheral Visions is a monthly screening series of cult action and horror films from the 70s and 80s, co-presented by the Belcourt Theatre and Third Man Records in Third Man Record’s Blue Room.
Joe (Carmine Capobianco) runs a strip club and Kate (Debi Thibeault) is an attractive young manicurist. After bonding over their mutual dislike of grapes, they discover another commonality: both of them are bloodthirsty serial killers. As they begin to balance their obsession with murder and each other, they meet Herman (Frank Stewart), a cannibal plumber who, upon discovering their bloodlust, attempts to lure them into killing as a means to satisfy his craving for human flesh! Bloody and hilarious, Gorman Bechard’s PSYCHOS IN LOVE is an absurd, homegrown horror-comedy, which alternates between gratuitous killing scenes and self-aware parodies of romantic comedies.
