DEMENTED (1980 U.S.) D/P: ARTHUR JEFFREYS D/W: ALEX REBAR P: MARK SMITH
Sally Elyze (Elyse) is one of my favourite bad actresses. I mean, she's really awful. That makes this REPULSION copy a must-see, because she's the star. After Elyze is discharged from an asylum ("i've changed inside and that's a fact"), she's raped, her husband (Harry Reems credited under his real name Bruce Gilchrist) cheats on her and a gang of youths break into her house. She snaps and fights back, castrating one of them with a length of wire. The story (from THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN himself) is not that interesting, but Elyze's facial expressions and delivery are hilarious.
