Trivia

The scene where the first motorcyclist is seen crashing off the bridge was shot on the M3 motorway, then under construction. The bridge and some roadway leading up to it were the only bits completed in 1972; the motorway itself was finished in 1974. See more »

Goofs

The amount of times the same vehicles were used, even after being involved in accidents. Example: when the bikers are trying to kill themselves, one rides through the side of a furniture van. Later on, the riders go past traffic and the same van is there undamaged. See more »

Yay!
23 May 2003 | by (Austin, TX.) – See all my reviews

Ok, kiddies. My whole life I have been a horror film junky. My parents, being the lovely and supportive folks that they are, always bought or rented me these bloody movies when I was a kid. As a gift on my 11th Christmas, I got Psychomania.

I will always thank my parents for giving me this movie. It's great and cheesey in all the right ways and scary in all the ways a movie can be. It's creepy good fun! RENT IT NOW. Please. :)
