For a few years now, there has been a question as to why a Blu-ray of PSYCHOMANIA has not happened. The main problem it seemed, has been the lack of a good print of the film. Well that problem has been solved, at least in the UK. PSYCHOMANIA aka THE DEATH WHEELERS, are on their way…
From Blu-ray.com: “LOOK OUT! The Living Dead motorcycle gang is on the rampage, wreaking havoc in their small English town. For gang leader Tom (Nicky Henson), however, mere earthly violence is not enough: he’s obsessed with the occult and is convinced that he can kill himself and then return from the dead – with the help of a frog-worshipping cult and his seance-conducting mother (Beryl Reid). Remarkably, Tom succeeds and soon joins the ranks of the walking – and riding – dead! Now if he can only persuade his girlfriend and the rest of his gang to join him – but Mother and her diabolical butler Shadwell (George Sanders) may have other plans for the Living Dead, who are dangerously trespassing on uncharted spiritual grounds.
Psychomania is a pre-punk British horror cult classic featuring trashy violence, suburban witchcraft, and some amazing motorcycle stunt sequences. Come and ride with the Living Dead – if you dare! Starring Nicky Henson, Mary Larkin, Ann Michelle, Roy Holder, and Denis Gilmore.
