Well, that's what it SHOULD have been called, in a "does exactly what it says on the tin" fashion. I've not seen the DVD, so this is based on seeing Psychomania on TV, quite by accident, while channel hopping, and being irresistably drawn in by the so-crap-it's-brilliant - ness of it all.

The plot, such as it is, is summed up in the heading above. Tom (Nicky Hendon) is the leader of a biker gang, and his mother (Berly Reid, by all that's holy!) is a witch who sold both their souls to the Frog God (no, come back!) when he was a baby in exchange for the secret to eternal life, and then promptly didn't tell him after his father died. See, the catch is, you can only come back from the dead if you kill yourself, really believing that you can come back and actually wanting to die - embracing death, I suppose. So, ironically, if at the point of death you find you don't want to die, then you die forever (like people normally do), but if you DO want to die, you come back as the indestructible undead - oh, do keep up at the back!

So Tom, the poshest biker ever to have put pedal to the metal, finds the secret of eternal life in a very trippy room in his mother's mansion, and passes it on to his biker buddies, who sepnd the rest of the film killing themselves an a variety of entertaining ways, and then proceed to cause murderous havoc until Tom's mum and the Frog God get together to sort them out. And it's got Dot Cotton in it. What more could anyone ask for from a movie?

It was like drugs on toast :) I loved it for its cheese and total Britishness. Only the English could have made a film like this.

Cup of tea, anyone?

A biker gang, The Living Dead cause mayhem through British towns,pubs and motorways. Theres one problem, they really are the living dead having all killed themselves in various elaborate ways in order to join their gang leader(Nicky Henson) in immortality. Very funny, with an excellent soundtrack, Beryl Reid(who gets turned into a frog) and George Sanders as the sinister ShadwelL

A great example of British Horror, with it's tongue firmly in cheek. Check it out you won't be dissapointed

When PSYCHOMANIA first appeared in 1972, most critics and moviegoers didn't know what to make of it. Horror film? Biker movie? Black comedy? Even the title doesn't make any sense. It turns out to be a combination of all three plus a little bit more. Having recently watched it again after many years, I was struck by how darkly comic the whole movie is but played with a completely straight face. If the Coen Brothers had been British, this is the movie they would have started out with instead of BLOOD SIMPLE. While occasionally hampered by its low budget, PSYCHOMANIA makes up for it with a mordantly funny script and solid performances from its young cast led by Nicky Henson. Also on hand are old pros Beryl Reid as Henson's Mum and George Sanders (in his last film appearance) as the family butler who turns out to be more than he seems. Hammer veteran Don Sharp directs it all with a sure hand while the cinematography and the editing are memorable. It is still crazy after all these years.

The plot involves a motorcycle gang of bored young people called The Living Dead who get the opportunity to become just that. It seems that if you commit suicide really believing that you'll come back, then you do and you're immortal. Of course they need help from the Devil and some occult rituals involving toads. The surreal scene where Henson sees his life in reverse through a magic mirror in a room with no doors is a highlight. The script misses no opportunity to cast a jaded eye on teenage suicide, occult worship, meaningless violence and a lack of respect for authority while the biker scenes provides the audience with cheap thrills a-plenty. The not to be believed ending is a real stunner. Not exactly a horror film which it was marketed as and definitely not a movie for everyone.

A belter from the hot pants era, a low budget British psycho-horror B flick that will entertain you, thrill you and definitely amuse you. Nicky Henson's finest hour although he disowns the film (he probably got paid £3.50 for the lead role). Has Beryl Reid and George Sanders too, what more could you want? Well, a load of semi classic British motorcycles, a lot of black leather, some hot motorcycling ladies and some not so hot ex public schoolboys all revving up their twin cylinder engines for all eternity. Has rightly become a sought after cult movie, so it needs a new release.

I first watched this cult classic back in about 1994 when it was on ITV at about 2.10 in the morning in the days when they used to put on some classic films at night,rather than the dross they fill the night with now. I was glued to this movie and in all the hundreds of films I have watched this is without doubt somewhere in my top 25.Yes it's cheesy and at times, poorly edited but this kind of adds to the magic of it.
If this movie was remade now along with other remakes of classic British movies it would be nowhere near as creepy (The Wicker Man comes straight to mind)
Nicky Henson(Fawlty Towers + Eastenders) was awesome as the gang leader and it's a shame that he did not appear in more movies as he certainly had a presence in this.Grab this DVD if you want a really entertaining hour and a half.Make sure though you watch it at night !!!!!
