PSYCHOKILLERS! is a psychobilly farce that quips with cheap horror classics, in particular The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Gags from American horror films are also used. Shorty, a punk heroine, falls into a strange work of real-life horror scenes. In an average day she meets carnivorous plants, giant bean pods and a few living brains. She thinks something in town isn't "right." She tries to warn her friends that danger is around the corner, but no one listens until one day ....
The music is pure psychobilly.
