PSYCHOMANIA, d. Don Sharp (1971)
After being jeered at for many years, 'Psychomania' has emerged as one of the most interesting British films of the nineteen seventies, not least because of the way it exploits both contemporary youth trends and ancient pagan lore, combining the mundane and the arcane, the mechanical and the metaphysical. Here, undead biker leader Tom is turned to stone for overstepping the mark, witchcraft wise. It's no less than he deserves, he's behaved abominably. And the same goes for those reckless layabouts he calls a gang.
