Newly restored by the BFI after decades in obscurity, Psychomania is one of the shining oddities of ’70s cinema, a supernatural thriller about a gang of undead bikers who worship frogs and terrorise the innocent shoppers of Walton-On-Thames. The screening is part of this year’s PZYK Festival lead-up.
Written by two blacklisted Americans, directed by a jobbing Australian, and with a sensational psych-funk soundtrack by John Cameron, Psychomania is blessed with a bizarre cast which mixes well-spoken youngsters with confused pros such as Beryl Reid and – in his final role – George Sanders. Come and ride with the living dead – if you dare!
