Psychomania1973

  • 3.6
The cult classic known as "the greatest British zombie biker movie ever made" returns with the ultimate full-throttle restoration. Nicky Henson, Beryl Reid and Academy Award®-winner George Sanders star in this beloved '70s mind-blower about a motorcycle gang who burst from their graves to crush a world of psychedelic hippie pleasures under the wheels of black leather occult mayhem. From veteran horror director Don Sharp (the blacklisted Hollywood screenwriters of HORROR EXPRESS) and featuring some of the wildest cycle stunts of the decade, PSYCHOMANIA has now been restored from the only uncut 35mm print in existence.

Devilish Tom Latham and his gang of shaggy-haired, delinquent Death Wheelers have come back from the grave--AGAIN! This Aleister Crowley-on-Wheels tale of black magic meets black leather is a hip, anti-establishment horror-comedy that captures the mood of swinging England, 1972. Nicky Henson's brutish charm and swagger, classic British racing bikes, John Cameron’s fuzzed out soundtrack, inspired stunt work, baby-faced bikers who look like members of Badfinger, and the final film appearance of the elegantly sinister George Saunders. It’s all a darkly sweet treat, like black leather licorice.

A British bike gang called "The Living Dead" literally become that when their leader uses magic to raise them from the dead after they kill themselves. They acquire dangerous powers and go on a rampage. I understand what they were trying for here, but not even the presence of George Sanders can save this slow, dreary flick.

So the moral of the story here is don't commit suicide when your mother practices magick or you'll turn into a stone. Cool 70's biker flick, fun watch.

It is more like a Teenage Vampire movie than a zombie film. They become invincible and there for go a rampage not worrying about the consequences. It's dated but kinda fun. Sort of symbolic of the rebellious 60's youth who longed for Anarchy.

classic

let me say, drugs helped

Worst 'biker' or 'zombie' film I've seen.

Stunning.
