Psychomania 1972 15

88 mins United Kingdom Director. Don Sharp

One of the weirdest films about young undead bikers on the rampage you’ll ever see, and the only one to feature George Sanders and Beryl Reid as toad-worshipping Satanists. With the secret of eternal life in their grasp, The Living Dead motorcycle gang and their splendidly stony-faced leader Tom (Nicky Henson) return from the grave to terrorise the locals.

Packed with gothic tropes, black humour, a psychedelic score and exceedingly eccentric performances, Psychomania is a cult horror classic brimming with exciting action and fantastical mayhem.
