Psychomania is a British horror movie from 1973 that tells the story of a gang of motorcycle enthusiasts who discover the secret of eternal life and use it to become invincible and unstoppable. The movie follows Tom Latham (Nicky Henson), the leader of a motorcycle gang called The Living Dead, who is obsessed with death and the afterlife. He is convinced that his mother, a medium and spiritualist, holds the key to eternal life and decides to use her knowledge to cheat death.

Together with his gang, Tom performs a series of black magic rituals that involve killing themselves and coming back to life as undead beings known as the 'Living Dead'. From now on, they are immune to injury or death and can cause mayhem on the roads with their invincible motorcycles.

However, Tom's mother warns him that there is a catch – in order to maintain their immortality, they must commit suicide within one week of their resurrection. While some of the gang are reluctant to follow through with this plan, Tom is determined to become immortal and is willing to risk everything to achieve his goal.

As they continue their reign of terror on the roads, the police become increasingly concerned about The Living Dead's antics and begin to investigate the gang. Meanwhile, Tom's girlfriend Abby (Mary Larkin) tries to convince him that his obsession with death is dangerous and that he should abandon his plans.

But Tom is deaf to her warnings and, with the help of his mother and her occult knowledge, continues down the path towards immortality, leading his gang on a final, deadly rampage with shocking consequences.

Psychomania is a unique and unusual horror movie that combines elements of biker culture, black magic, and undead mythology to create a gripping and unusual story that has become a cult classic. The film's imagery is particularly striking, featuring some memorable scenes of the motorcycle gang riding through foggy graveyards and performing bizarre rituals to achieve their goals.

The film is also notable for its cast, which includes rising stars Nicky Henson and Ann Michelle, who both deliver strong performances as the troubled leader of The Living Dead and his disillusioned girlfriend. Mary Larkin also shines as Abby, the voice of reason in a world gone mad.
