Audience Reviews for Demented
"Demented" truly is. I haven't been so offended and put off by a film since my first viewing of "I Spit on Your Grave" (1978/2010). This one doesn't bother with exposition, though - the rape happens in the first minute or so. The film then moves on to the woman being horrified and jittery - post-traumatic stress, only poorly acted - and ends with her slaughtering a group of neighborhood boys who only wanted to play a prank on her by pretending to be the men who raped her (who were, though the film doesn't show it, apparently captured and put away). This is a disgusting picture, one that I hope to forget, but probably won't. I feel unclean and almost masochistic for watching it all the way through. Zero Stars
An alright Rape-Revenge flick featuring Harry Reems. Has a good concept and good pacing, but unfortunantly is brought down by poor lighting, bad dialouge, an annoying leading lady etc. That isn't to say that this is a total failure either, it isn\t, I just feel it could have been done better. It is what it is though, an early 80's expolitation flick so it's flaws are to be expected. I would still give this a passing grade. I thought that questionable sanity of the leading lady did create a good amount of suspense and mystery. Are these vivid flash backs, or is she actually being stalked by a new group of rapists. That question is answered by the end, but I think it would have been more interesting if they left that open for the audience to decide for themselves. I don't buy that they were just "playing a joke" for a minute. Gore is pretty much non existent here, but the kill scenes do imply enough, Worth a watch for R n R fans. Just don't be expecting a classic like Last House on the Left or I Spit on Your Grave,
This is a bad low-budget psychological horror movie, mostly because of the technical side of it. Overall, not worth seeing.
