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

Very disappointed with the quality of this DVD. There is a continuous 'hum' throughout and intermittent flashes. Really not up to an acceptable standard. Pity!Published on 12 Jun. 2014 by Rod C
