Dementia 13

Dementia 13 is the first mainstream movie directed by Francis Ford Coppola. The movie was produced by Roger Corman and is an exploitation of Psycho, the Hitchcock movie. The movie is one of the first antecedents of the slasher genre and shows part of the Coppola point of view about filmmaking. The plot shows a well developed gothic atmosphere in which there is a murderer that is killing people in an ancient estate.

    "I did not have high expectations for this one and let me tell you it was just as well. Boy, this that movie age badly or what. It might also be that it was never very good to start with, of course. It does deserve many points for being a pioneer in the exquisite arts of slasher movies and there are some good ideas here and there, but the execution is so sloppy I found myself shaking my head for a good 75% of the movie. I'd say its greater value is the fact that it's the first movie Francis Ford Coppola directed. You've come a long way , baby..."

    "I was debating with my friends one night about what is the best film directed by Francis Ford Coppola. We spent hours discussing the finer points of his cinematography, settings, and selection of actors and we came to the conclusion that the best slasher movie ever made is Dementia 13 with the actors William Campbell and Luana Anders. When I first saw this as a child this movie scarred me for many nights. I highly recommend Dementia 13 if you are in for a late night thriller and slasher film that will have you sweating and anxious."

    "How could you go wrong with a horror film with Francis Ford Coppola and Roger Corman at the helm? Dementia 13 sees Coppola at the beginning of his amazing career. If you are a fan of Psycho and other 60s slasher films you will love Dementia 13!"
