Psychomania film screening, 21 September

FACT, Wood Street, Liverpool, L1, 21 September, 6.15pm

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!
