     "Bad / strange" as opposed to "bad / funny", this 1955 oddity has a nightmare quality that works very well with the low budget.  TRIVIA NOTE: this is the movie that was showing in the theater in THE BLOB (1958).

I reviewed this recently: http://366weirdmovies.com/282-dementia-daughter-of-horror-1955/

I don't think it's "bad" in any sense (although critics at the time sure did!) It's just low budget. This flick is a lot like CARNIVAL OF SOULS in many respects.

"Clive [Barker]'s idea of a great time is to have a nightmare about a woman with three heads and no skin who flays your body with a pitchfork. To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

I really like this movie a lot, but the first two times I watched it, the damn thing felt like it was 4 hours long. Each time!!! In truth, it is only an hour or so long. At least, the version most people see is only that long. There is a longer version of it, if I'm not mistaken.

Actually, it runs to about 58 minutes or there about. Though that might be the slightly longer version, which is known under the title Dementia, which had to be cut slightly in 4 places to get past the New York City film censors.

Though, neither film is to be confused with the Filipino horror film Dementia from 2014 or Dementia 13 from 1963, which was Francis Ford Coppola's 1st legitimate mainstream directorial effort.

     This, CARNIVAL OF SOULS, and NIGHT TIDE would make an interesting triple bill.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
