Jen Randall commented: “It’s great to see so many UK venues interested in screening Psycho Vertical. It was quite a journey in its making, so Andy and I are both thrilled that cinemas are interested in presenting it. It isn’t often that movies like ours make it into cinema screens, and we’re eager to see just how far we can change that!”
