Blood On Her Hands…Doom In Her Eyes

If you dig David Lynch’s Eraserhead, Luis Bunuel’s Un Chien Andalou or German Expressionism you might like this silent, surreal tale of a girl who escapes her horrific childhood home…only to tumble into a world far more nightmarish. Some of the few people who have seen or even heard of Daughter Of Horror aka Dementia (if you’ve seen the original The Blob you’ve seen bits of it…it’s the movie playing in the theater when it gets blobbed) find it far too depressing and grotesque to sit through…but I find a certain beauty in its bleakness…It’s really a shame that this is director John Parker’s only known film. The man had talent and vision and I would like to have seen alot more from him…
