America gave motorcycle-mad cinemagoers Easy Rider, The Wild One and The Wild Angels... and Britain gave them Psychomania, the tale of zombie bikers run amok in southern England.
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 -- until their longhair leader discovers the secret of eternal life under the guidance of his frog-worshipping occultist mum. He willingly commits suicide in the belief that you’ll come back from the dead -- and once zombified, nothing can kill you. Directed by Hammer veteran Don Sharp (The Kiss Of The VAmpire) -- and with character names like Hatchet and Chopped Meat, spectacularly shlocky effects and a ghoulish, benchmark ambient psych score -- Psychomania delivers the goods.
