I witnessed this wreck of a movie on cable TV late one night and couldn't take my eyes off of it, it was so hideous. Marissa Tomei is in this film. It's billed as her debut, but isn't. Filled with bad music, dialogue, and an excruciating dance number. Oh the pain!Christopher Cuomo, email@example.com
Unfortunately, this is not that movie. This isn't even *close* to being that movie. For a start, nothing from the previous paragraph even appears in it. Only two scenes-- the one where the Postman finds the uniform, and when he sleeps with a woman who wants a child but whose husband is sterile-- are recognizable from the book, and don't happen until over half an hour into the film. The Holnists have become a bunch of nice guys who just happen to have an evil overlord, and any intelligence or cunning the Postman had in the book has been foisted off on his sidekick. In fact, the Postman spends as much time as possible hiding out from the plot, "protecting" the aforementioned woman, who in return shoots his mule, tries to drown herself in a creek, and sets fire to the cabin they've been using. Eventually the plot catches up with them and the Postman kills the evil overlord, after which everyone decides to just get along.
Three hours of dull boredom starring not only Kevin Costner, but his way-too-cute son and daughter.From the editor
Psychomania features a young British motorcycle gang called "The Living Dead" (dig the matching jackets with the gang name in big white letters on the back). The main character "Tom" is not only the leader of the bikers but a rich kid (the opportunities for posure jokes are endless...)
Many scenes take place inside his mother's mansion with Tom, his mother and their butler (who is really satan or something). The house is decked out in true "style" and is the site of much TERRIBLE acting and set design. The effects in this movie are only termed "special" because they ride the short bus to school.
Other scenes take place in a Celtic circle of stones which seems to be where the gang hangs out. Before killing themselves in order to come back as undead became the "in" thing to do ("you haf'ta BELIEVE--REALLY BELIEVE you'll come back"); The main activities of the Living Dead consisted of riding around on the paths in and around this circle and attacking innocent motorists. Did I mention that footage is re-used wherever possible?
Psychomania has got to be the least violent horror flick ever made. Violence is NEVER shown--only (poorly) hinted at. The movie is paced in such a way that it invites commentary (plenty of stilted dialogue).
To top all this off it contains an entire "folk" song in which the line "the holy sound of revving filled the air" is sung with a straight face.
If any of the Best Brains are reading: SEE THIS MOVIE. You will not be dissapointed. It provides vast opportunities for mockery and who knows, it may even be attainable for the show.
The film can be found in the Internet Movie Database. Ignore the ratings, but check out the poor plot synopsis by some guy with terrible English.phorce phed, firstname.lastname@example.org
