1963 Horror Classic Available on Blu-ray July 26th

“A little gem of gothic horror …”
TV Guide’s Movie Guide
Written and directed by Coppola (The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation) at just 24-years-old, Dementia 13 is considered his first mainstream, “legitimate” directorial effort. Backed by funds leftover from one of Corman’s (Death Race, The Terror, The Little Shop of Horrors) other projects – on which Coppola worked as a sound technician – the fledgling director wrote the screenplay in one night, bringing Corman’s idea for a low-budget, extremely brutal, gothic-themed Psycho knockoff to life.
Although Coppola promised “lots of sex and violence,” Corman later battled with Coppola and hired the “exploitation master,” director Jack Hill (Foxy Brown, Coffy, Spider Baby), to shoot additional scenes of carnage. For years, it was rumored the film’s print had mysteriously disappeared. Now, the horror classic has received The Film Detective touch, delivering a crisp picture with quality sound.
Commented film industry veteran Phil Hopkins, owner of The Film Detective, “As a huge enthusiast of
Dementia 13, I’m very proud to be releasing the film on Blu-ray for the first time in its correct aspect ratio. The
Film Detective team took great care improving the picture and sound quality and the restored 35mm HD transfer
looks incredible. I hope fans old and new will appreciate it!
