PSYCHOMANIA

Don Sharp, UK, 1973, Arrow Films, Horror

“Unsuspecting viewers are destined to be left speechless by its hallucinatory fusion of rebellious mod youths, spooky zombie mayhem, loud motorcycle chases, and . . . uh, supernatural frogs.”
— Nathaniel Thompson, MONDO DIGITAL

American gave motorcycle-mad cinemagoers EASY RIDER, THE WILD ONE and THE WILD ANGELS . . . and Britain gave them PSYCHOMANIA, a tale of zombie bikers run amok that feels like an alt-Earth version of SUSPIRIA. Meet the Living Dead: a co-ed biker gang terrorizing a small English village by chasing cars off the road, buzzing pedestrians, and sporting atrocious haircuts. That is, until their longhair leader discovers the secret of eternal life under the guidance of his frog-worshipping occultist mother. Directed by Hammer veteran Don Sharp (THE KISS OF THE VAMPIRE) -- and with character names like Hatchet and Chopped Meat, spectacular low budget effects and a ghoulish ambient psych score -- PSYCHOMANIA delivers the goods.
