Psychomania 1973
In this British cult classic, Tom Latham (Nicky Henson) is a rebellious upper-class youth who fronts a violent biker gang known as the “Living Dead.” But a life of running helpless citizens off the road and terrorizing the general public isn’t enough for Tom – he wants to blow more minds. Fortunately for Tom, his mother (Beryl Reid) and her shady butler, Shadwell (George Sanders), are practitioners of the occult. With their help Tom determines that he can become immortal and extra badass by committing suicide and willing himself back to life. Once he succeeds he’s now even more dangerous and wild than before. Encouraged by Tom’s leadership, the rest of the Living Dead follow suit. Only Tom’s girlfriend Abby (Mary Larkin) refuses to follow suit. Meanwhile, as the Living Dead embark on a reign of terror, will anyone be able to stop them?
