The cult filmmaker that brought you Family Property and Midnight Matinee Psycho faces personal demons and creates the next great horror film with Psychotic State.
The filmmaker that brought you Family Property: Backwoods Killing Spree and Midnight Matinee Psycho, Derek Young, is back! But this time he is facing personal demons and taking on the subject of bullying in his epic slasher film, PsychoticState.
The plot of PsychoticState tells the story of David Coleman, a bipolar twenty-six year old man who is one of those people that the world likes to pick on. David is bullied and abused by everyone around him, including his adopted father. When David gets fired from his job after a run in with a couple bullies he loses his medical and stops taking his medication. This causes David to go into a psychotic state and in a twisted idea of justice he decides that it is time for him to take out all his bullies and abusers. The result is a killing spree and ends with a bloodbath that will be a must see for horror fans.

“This production has been an amazing experience for me. I feel blessed to be working with such talented people. My co-writer, Eric (William Pattison aka Eric Morse) has been a great source of inspiration and creativity on this project, much like my mentor, the late David Hess.” Director Derek Young said. “Together we all make a powerhouse of a team.”
“Working on this film and has brought up a lot of demons for me.” William Pattison aka Eric Morse admitted. “When I was young I was bullied constantly by my peers. It was incessant and I have to admit that it hasn’t changed that much in my adult years. After returning to the horror community after I found that my books have found an after life with fans I have seen and been treated to brutality by a large number of my peers in this community. We call them internet trolls, but they are the same bullies I grew up with, just now older and using the computer and other technology to tear people down to make themselves feel superior. It is honestly one of the things that is bringing our horror community down and causing people to turn their backs on it.
Even though PsychoticState is written as a gory slasher flick I hope people can see the anti-bullying message that this morality tale presents, that the cycle of pain and abuse needs to end and that we as humans need to stop trying to feel superior through brutality and show our fellow humans respect and honor. The thing is that even a person who is good at heart can be pushed into doing horrid things if society takes things too far and tries to knock them down. Sometimes nice guys don’t finish last. Sometimes they get even.”
The film will be released in 2014.
My name is not Jason! It’s David Coleman.
Meet David Coleman. If you’re a bully he’s looking for you to kill.
