As we told you a few months back, Contracted‘s DP Mike Testin is making his feature debut with an old-school horror flick entitled Dementia, which boasts a handful of faces that are quite familiar to us horror folk. On tap for you today are the first images from the film so dig in!
From the Press Release
Dementia, starring Gene Jones (Sacrament) and Kristina Klebe (Proxy), leaves you thinking Misery meets Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?
The film also stars some of horrorâ€™s hottest indie actors including Peter Cilella (Resolution), Richard Riehle (Texas Chainsaw 3D), Marc Senter (Red, White & Blue), and Graham Skipper (Almost Human). Molly McQueen (Carjacked), Tony Denison (â€œThe Closerâ€), and newcomer Hassie Harrison co-star.
Diagnosed with dementia, war veteran George Lockhart (Jones) must deal with his estranged family. Son Jerry (Cilella) and granddaughter Shelby (Harrison) force him to hire a live-in nurse (Klebe), only to find she harbors a sinister secret.
From producers Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz: â€œOur goal with Dementia was to create a new, unique experience in psychological dread and terror, having more in common with films like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? or Repulsion than the latest ghost/found footage/torture movie. A horror film with real characters, drama, and tension, with scares coming from suspense and atmosphere, rather than jump scares and general gratuity. If Contracted made people afraid of being intimate with strangers, Dementia will make them afraid to trust people altogether.â€
