Audience Reviews for Dementia

  • Jan 15, 2014
    An unusual experiment made during the last years of Hollywood film-noir, <i>Dementia</i> is an extremely dark combination of noir elements, deceitful characters, murder, guilt, horror and inner demons, all mixed into one nightmarish ride. It is a very ambitious project, maybe more than for its own sake, but this rare experiment - that even dared to mix a hint of the line that divides fantasy and reality - has an interesting premise and introduced elements that hadn't been portrayed before, such as constructing a potentially silent film with no dialogue whatsoever, an omniscient narrator that accentuates the dark aura for the audience and can dwell into the protagonist's mind, and faceless characters that function more like lurking shadows assaulting the supposed "madness" of a treacherous woman. Pros and cons evaluated, <i>Dementia</i> aka <i>Daughter of Horror</i> offers an almost hallucinatory ride with interesting sequences and a climax difficult to forget. 73/100 Note: There is a version circulating that omits the voiceover/narration, consisting only on very few sound effects, music and the laughter of the characters. This is my preferred version because, given the almost supernatural experience that this is, the work is left to the viewer, resulting in a more chilling and involving "silent" experience.

    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.
