Dementia / Daughter of Horror (1955)

Dementia is a black and white film from 1955. It is a silent film and there is not a single line of dialogue in the entire film, nor are there any storyboards to tell the viewer what is going on. The film was later re-released under the title Daughter of Horror and had the dubious benefit of an added narration. You can find out more about Dementia/Daughter of Horror at A Passion For Horror.

Dementia (also known in a slightly altered version as Daughter of Horror) is an American film by John Parker (director), incorporating elements of the horror film, film noir and Expressionism (film).


Dementia is perhaps most famous for its appearance in The Blob (1958), where it is the movie playing in the movie theater when the Blob strikes.
The film has been compared to The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) as being a portrait of an insane mind from the "inside out".
