Looking for something better to watch than Easy Rider or The Wild Angels? Then look no further than the upcoming Blu-ray release of Psychomania, aka The Death Wheelers. Completely restored from preservation negatives and available soon with lots of special content to check out.
A UK cult favorite which was initially dropped in theaters in 1973. It was directed by Hammer veteran Don Sharp (The Kiss of the Vampire) starring Nicky Henson, Beryl Reid, George Sanders (in his final film) and Robert Hardy. A biker gang returns from the dead to wreak havoc on British roadways and continue to terrorize the lives of locals.
Gang leader Tom (Nicky Henson) also has a Satanist for a mother, and when he discovers the secret of immortality, the name of his motley crew takes on a more literal meaning…
