On April 11th, Get DEMENTED with Sallee Young!


Having seen I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, MS.45, and numerous other rape and revenge films, I didn't realize this particular entry into the sub-genre even existed! And as an added bonus, porn legend Harry Reems has a role in this movie! I'm filing this under "must see" right now!

Synopsis: She has lost everything. Hope…control…and her mind!

After surviving a brutal and devastating assault, Linda Rodgers (Sallee Young) is institutionalized in order to deal with her intense trauma. By the time she is finally released, her attackers have been brought to justice and imprisoned…but the psychological scars remain.

Tormented by visions of her attackers, and mistreated by her philandering husband (Harry Reems!), Linda is pushed over the edge when she encounters four young men whom she confuses with the men who assaulted her. Consumed with madness, Linda attempts to enact a bloody retribution for the disgusting crimes committed upon her… and no one is safe in this shocking 1980 exploitation film in the tradition of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE!

  1. I can't believe Scream Factory released this legendary piece of dreck, "Demented" on Blu-Ray. It is among the worst horror movies ever made, and it was my 1st production job in Hollywood. I was the volunteer craft service on this, just to get experience, and when one of the actors quit because he had too much self respect to be in something this bad and actually have to perform a rape scene as the rapist, I jumped at the opportunity, simply to make $100, which was the salary for that actor. I was guaranteed that I got to wear a mask in all of the awful scenes. I had to also play 1 of the 4 rapists in the opening scene with pantyhose over my face (as well as the masked "Joker") since they couldn't find actors for that scene (the other 3 were friends of the writer, as I recall who did him a favor but only if they could wear pantyhose too). But it was my 1st experience in Hollywood so I agreed.
    I still have the prop metal butcher cleaver used in the picture. Perhaps I'll sell it on eBay. For you cult horror movie fans, here is an archive of links that are everything "Demented" online.
    Demented (1980) , starring Sallee Young. The plot, such as it is, is commendably fast-paced ; the star is sexually assaulted in a horse stable within a minute or two of her first being onscreen . The remaining plot (something about her being driven insane as a result of her gang rape) might have been compelling, as a study in trauma. But Ms Young's abysmal acting abilities (somewhat lower than the typical High School drama club student's) undercut anything important that the movie might have portrayed. Seriously, this thing has to be seen to be believed.
If I recall she had a really annoying voice that made the whole movie hard to watch.
Especially when she was Trying to emote to show she'd gone insane. She was very pretty though, and I guess that's what really mattered to the people making this cinematic treasure.…/…/holy-crap-demented-is-comi…/…/on-april-11th-get-demented……/…/demented-blu-ray-review
