April 25th, 2012: Psychomania aka The Death Wheelers

What It’s About: The Living Dead are a motorcycle gang in England, led by Tom Latham (Nicky Henson) whose mother (Beryl Reid) is a master of the black arts.  Under Mrs. Latham’s direction, Tom and his mates commit suicide, come back from the grave, and go on a rampage, finally living up to their gang’s name…but what is Mrs. Latham and her butler Shadwell’s (George Sander) real aim?

Why Watch it Today?: George Sanders committed suicide today in 1972.  Today’s film was his last, and is certainly  not one of his best, and its subject is somewhat morbid considering his own fate.  That being said, as far as low-budget, so-bad-it’s-good English horror goes, you could do a lot worse than Psychomania.

Where to Get It:  Netflix (Rental)

Other Choices:  Rebecca, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, All About Eve or Village of the Damned
