Audience Reviews for 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.

Super Reviewer

Really bizarre 50's film about a seemingly psychotic woman who wanders a sort of surreal skid row and encounters all kinds of sleazy characters.

I just remember the segment they play in THE BLOB -"Yes, I am here. The demon who possesses your soul." Tough to watch and ultimately...okay.
