Tom (Nicky Henson) is the leader of the Living Dead, the by far most ruthless biker gang of the UK - but while his mates seem to have only joined the club for fun and games, and of course fast bikes, Tom has his sights set on bigger things: Somehow, he has found out that his psychic mother (Beryl Reid) and her butler Shadwell (George Sanders) have somehow found out about the secret of eternal life, which basically has to do with committing suicide believing that one will come back. Tom does just that, drives his bike over a bridge, is buried sitting upright on his bike ... and comes back shooting out of his grave on his bike - but apparently the experience has somehow changed him for the worse, as he turns into a ruthless killer, who basically kills mostly for fun, or if others annoy him a bit or something. His gang are all thrilled by the new and now immortal Tom, and one after the other they commit suicide, too, and most of them come back safe for the ones who don't have the necessary faith. The police is baffled by this murder spree of a gang who's officially deceased, but then chief inspector Hesseltine (Robtert Hardy) gets hold of Tom's girlfriend Abby (Mary Larkin), the very last of the gang still alive who, actually a good girl, is becoming someone appalled by Tom's ruthless attitude and ultimately agrees to help the police. But how far gone is Tom already, and what can even the police do against a bunch of immortals?

 

Ok, I'd be hard-pressed if I claimed that this British blend of biker movie and old school supernatural horror wasn't at least a little silly - in fact it has one scratching one's head what these people were actually thinking when making this ... and that's exactly why Psychomania is so much fun at the same time, it's a careless slapdash of genres that doesn't make too much sense, but there's plenty of action in there, some inventive death scenes, plenty of irony, plus one can't help but being drawn in by the style that spells 1970s from beginning to end. True, one might like it for all the wrong reasons, but that's the point, it's very likeable in its weird way!
