Rating: 2.5/4 -- This early effort remains an interesting part of Coppola's filmography -- certainly more than such latter-day stinkbombs as Jack and Youth Without Youth. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- There was no way to tell from the debut of Coppola, then 24, a low-budget horror flick produced by Roger Corman, that in a decade he would become the most influential director. Full Review
Oct 31, 2012
Rating: 4/10 -- With Dementia 13, Coppola glutted himself on exploitation. Full Review
The Retro Set
Dec 27, 2018
The location (an Irish castle) is used imaginatively, the Gothic atmosphere is suitably potent, and there's a wonderfully sharp cameo from Patrick Magee as the family doctor. Full Review
Time Out

It's standard horror fare -- with one interesting effect that turned up again, 12 years later, in The Conversation. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- So-so Irish axe murderer romp, via a young Francis Ford Coppola

Despite the rough edges, you feel you're in the hands of someone who enjoys telling a story, and knows how to do it - even when the story's a disposable one such as this. Full Review

Product Description:

Future film-making legend Francis Ford Coppola makes his big-screen directorial debut with this cult horror classic, available for the first time in spectacular High-Definition Blu-Ray. Following the abrupt death of her husband from a heart attack, the scheming Louise Haloran (Luanda Anders) travels to her in-laws estate in Ireland, only to find herself trapped in a creepy, decrepit castle with her ex-husband s demented family. Upon arrival, she is introduced to a pair of maladjusted brothers (William Campbell, Bart Patton) and a distraught mother-in-law (Eithne Dunn), still grieving for the daughter she lost in a drowning accident many years earlier. When a mysterious axe-wielding psychopath enters the fray, leaving blood-spattered corpses in his wake, the family s doctor (Patrick Magee) takes it upon himself to try to get to the bottom of things--before it s too late! The making of Dementia 13, meanwhile, is a tale unto itself. An aspiring film-maker fresh out of UCLA, Coppola found work under the tutelage of B-movie legend Roger Corman, doing sound, editing and various other tasks. After finishing a film called The Young Racers under budget, Corman opted to use the leftover funds to finance a low-budget thriller to cash in on the success of Alfred Hitchcock s Psycho. Coppola quickly delivered a script to Corman s liking, promising plenty of nudity and gore. Corman gave him the green light. Despite the meager budget, Coppola made the most of his resources, re-purposing both sets and actors from The Young Racers, while employing the sort of creative lighting, camera angles, and storytelling that reveals an early glimpse at the great filmmaking that would follow with such titles as Apocalypse Now and The Godfather trilogy.
