Daughter of Horror

Made in 1955 a.k.a. Dementia, a narrator takes us deep into the mind of an insane woman awakening from a nightmare in a cheap hotel room. Without dialog we follow her through the skid-row night and encounters with an abusive husband; a wino; a pimp and the rich man he panders for; a flashback to her traumatic childhood; violence; pursuit through dark streets; dementia. Filmed in film-noir style throughout; only the narrator speaks.
