An entirely unique and utterly bizarre film, John J. Parker’s DEMENTIA is a 1950s-style foray into the mind of psycho-sexual madness. Set entirely in a nocturnal twilight zone that blends dream imagery with the cinematic stylings of film noir, DEMENTIA follows the tormented existence of a young woman haunted by the horrors of her youth, which transformed her into a stiletto-wielding, man-hating beatnik. Accompanied by George Antheil’s sci-fi score, the camera follows a “Gamin” (Adrienne Barrett) on a surreal sleepwalk through B-movie hell, populated by prostitutes, pimps, and would-be molesters – all photographed by William
Thompson (PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE). Two years after its original release, a narration track of foreboding psychobabble (diabolically spoken by Ed McMahon) was added and the title was changed to the more sensational DAUGHTER OF HORROR. This edition presents the original cut of DEMENTIA, digitally remastered from the 35MM negative, as well as the complete DAUGHTER OF HORROR (from a 35MM print), and the original theatrical trailer.
