Movie Info

One of the most deliberately weird exercises in the history of horror cinema, Daughter of Horror (aka Dementia) plays like a surreal nightmare journey through the unraveling mind of a young woman (Adrienne Barrett), unfolding completely without dialogue -- and featuring legendary Tonight Show second-banana Ed McMahon as the omniscient narrator. After murdering her own father, Barrett is taken in by a wealthy, lecherous mystery man (the Devil?) who paws her relentlessly and manages to seize her

Audience Reviews for Dementia (Daughter of Horror)

Daughter of Horror (or Dementia if you prefer) is an odd, odd movie. It looks like a film noir gone to hell. Ed McMahon overdramatically narrates it to the point where you'll probably make slow, uncomfortable eye contact with the person next to you. It's also full of grotesque close-ups (I thought I was going to barf watching Bruno Ve Sota eat) and whack-job randomness. That jazz club scene was a nice but odd change of pace even if the ending was completely expected. The movie felt at times like Ed Wood directed it even if there was really no dialogue. Worth the time definitely but don't set your expectations too high.
