Packed with gothic tropes, black humour and eccentric performances (including George Sanders' final screen role), Psychomania is a cult horror classic brimming with exciting action and fantastical mayhem. On 26 September 2016 it will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in a Dual Format Edition by BFI Flipside, stuffed with special features including interviews with cast members, rare short films, a new interview with Nicky Henson, a new short film about Lewis Leathers and more.
Upon discovering a dark family secret, Tom Latham (Nicky Henson), the leader of hell-raising teen motorcycle gang The Living Dead, decides to take drastic measures to ensure his gang's superiority. Through his devil-worshipping mother (Beryl Reid), Tom makes a pact with Satan to ascertain the secret of immortality. Using this information he encourages his fellow riders to end their lives, safe in the knowledge that they'll soon return from the dead to invulnerably terrorise the locals.
Psychomania will be launched with a screening at BFI Southbank (NFT1) on Wednesday 14 September at 8.30pm, followed by a Q&A with actor Nicky Henson, hosted by Flipside curators Vic Pratt and William Fowler. It will also be screened at the Starburst International Film Festival in Manchester on Friday 26 August and around the country as part of Scalarama during September. More info at the link above.
