View Trailer

Undead bikies, wealthy witches, Satanic butlers and magic frogs. What more could you want from a cult post-Hammer horror?

A death-obsessed bikie gang – led by the psychopathic son of a filthy-rich, Satan-worshipping medium – discover how to gain eternal life as attractive zombies indistinguishable from living, breathing humans, and go on a seemingly indestructible reign of murderous two-wheeled terror across southern England.

From Australian-born Hammer veteran Don Sharp (The Kiss of the Vampire), this 1973 outlaw-bikie zombie-sploitation flick wildly blends the more unhinged elements of A Clockwork Orange with fabulously B-grade occult folk horror and a funky psych-rock soundtrack to create a truly weird and wonderful cinematic gem, now recognised as a cult classic. The film marked the final appearance of Oscar winner George Sanders (All About Eve, Rebecca), who stars alongside equally big-named British actors of the day, including BAFTA, Tony and Olivier award winner Beryl Reid and future EastEnders star Nicky Henson.

“A film in which paganism and the occult ride pillion with a gang of delinquent bikers … Psychomania is a collision of mythology and modernism, in which the spirit of rebellious anarchy is both celebrated and ultimately, eerily punished.” – Little White Lies
