Ride with The Living Dead!

Ride With The Living Dead

As the woman behind Cine Meccanica and The Motorcycle Film Festival, it’s an understatement to say I spend a good amount of my time obsessing over motorcycle movies, and one that has always been a favorite, is the 1972 british classic, Psychomania. Outside of it being a fantastically macabre biker flick, the gang it portrays are The Living Dead, a group of hooligans who terrorize the countryside while attempting to obtain immortality. theres also an weird frog thing, an amazing funeral sequence, and the best damn helmets ever!

I’ve talked about making making myself a Living Dead helmet for years…but never did get around to doing it. So when I checked my Miss-Fires email earlier this month and saw that Miss-Fire Kim had taken it upon herself to make my movie nerd dream a Miss-Fire Halloween reality, i was beyond friggin’ stoked. And that email began the start of what will now be a yearly Miss-Fire tradition. Hope ya’ll can join us next year…and thanks again Kim!!
