"It's not me you're afraid of. It's The world"
PSYCHOMANIA a.k.a. THE DEATH WHEELERS is probably one of my favorite British horror flicks. It's got way more action than your average Hammer flick from the same period. It's also got such a strong anti-establishment/anarchist vibe going throughout it and just the idea of coming back from the dead and being an unstoppable force of chaos is such a great fantasy(at least for me it is) that I'm surprised more films don't follow this type of storyline. The story is about a gang of bikers called The Living Dead whose leader just so happens to have supernatural connections that allow them to die and come back from the dead as immortal zombie bikers. There's a rockin' soundtrack(besides the one hippie folk song which doesn't rock so much), hot English chicks and a great sequence where all our bikers commit suicide in different ways and then come back to raise hell! Good times.
