The went into the public domain in the U.S., it was one of the most mass-produced and easily available horror films of the VHS boom in the early ‘80s, a bootlegging trend that continued with hard media’s shift to DVD.

Now, 7 years after Severin Films remastered the movie for a DVD release, Psychomania is screaming to Blu-ray (and DVD) in a deluxe Dual Format edition from BFI Flipside, stuffed with special features including interviews with cast members, rare short films, a new interview with Nicky Henson, a new short film about Lewis Leathers and more.
