Thanks to Michael J. Wheldon's now defunct (and sadly missed) Psychotronic Magazine, the word 'psychotronic' has long been used to describe thousands of exploitative, cult, 'B' films that were previously dismissed as low-brow, cheap, odd, obscure, weird, strange, exotic, stupid, great and/or stunningly bad. I never really thought about it, but when I did, I figured the word was an ancient, old thing, but no. I was wrong.
Inventor of the word, film maker/teacher, art collector, director of The Captain Kangaroo show(!) and all round kool guy, I found Jack M. Sell online while searching for 'psychotronic' movies. Already a huge fan of his 1979 mentalus opus THE PSYCHOTRONIC MAN (referred to as PM from here on in), I asked for an interview straight away to get the 911 uptown Saturday night skinny on one of my favourite films from the director himself.
