watching the trailer only reminded me of how great this film is.....and the music too!
Coppola's first film after Corman finally decided to let him direct. It's not a perfect movie but it's definitely better than 95% of the crap hitting the silver screen these days.I can't believe the trailer shows the end shot though!
It's better than NOT REALLY BRAM STOKERS DRACULA was,even though i liked a lot of that movie.
Dementia 13 is great... it's deliberatly paced like a moody gothic thriller, it's got an ax murderer in it but it's not a slasher film which seems to confuse most doofuses looking for mounds of gore in place of good acting and well shot atmosphere.
I AGREE, THIS IS A VERY UNDERRATED AND EXCELLENT FILM. LUANA ANDERS IS GREAT AS THE CONNIVING MURDERESS AND COPPOLA DEFINITELY SHOWS HE'S GOT A WICKED EYE FOR THE CREEPY AND PERVERSE IN MANY SCENES.
The phoney intro is great too, always nice to see a medical "expert" reading from queue cards.
Dementia 13 has one of my absolute favorite opening sequence/credits/music themes in any horror film.
Yeah I need the soundtrack to this NOW!
