Dementia (1955) MAyBE: A girl lies on a bed in a cheap hotel room. She gets dressed and goes into the street. She walks through dark alleys. She is assaulted by a drunk.A cop arrives and brutally attacks the drunk. The girl is led to a limousine where a fat, disgusting and obviously rich man is sitting in the back seat. They make the rounds of various nightclubs catering to jazz and beatniks. They go to the man's apartment. After eating a heavy, greasy meal, most of which is on the man's hands and face, the man attempts to rape her. She plunges a knife into his stomach and he falls out the window, tearing a necklace from her throat as he hurtles to his death on the pavement below. The girl rushes to the street where she sees a crowd gathered around the corpse. The necklace is still clutched in his hand. Unable to pry the hand open, she cuts it off at the wrist. A detective arrives. The girl flees. Pursued by a police-car she runs through the darkened streets. She finds refuge in a nightclub where Shorty Rogers and his Jazz Band are performing. The detective arrives and all eyes are directed toward the girl. She is assaulted by insane laughter and pointing fingers of accusation. She awakens in her hotel room. She opens a dresser drawer. She finds....Maybe.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Narrator: Come with me into the tormented, haunted, half-lit night of the insane. This is my world. Let me lead you into it. Let me take you into the mind of a woman who is mad. You may not recognize some things in this world, and the faces will look strange to you. For this is a place where there is no love, no hope...in the pulsing, throbbing world of the insane mind, where only nightmares are real, nightmares of the Daughter of Horror!
