Storyline

When her husband John has a heart attack while out in a rowboat on the lake, Louise Haloran throws his body overboard and later tells the family that he has left on an urgent business trip. Her main concern is that she can only inherit a part of the family fortune if if her husband is alive. The Halorans are a strange family, still grieving over the death of the youngest daughter Kathleen who drowned in a pond when she was just a child. They hold an annual ceremony of remembrance every year on the anniversary of her death. This year however, someone is wielding an ax intent on murder. Written by garykmcd

Forgotten classic...
23 July 2000 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

This is the first movie that came from brilliant mind of Francis Ford Coppola.It is still very creepy and full of bizarre characters.Great,memorable music score which creates an unforgettable atmosphere of dread and fear.This gruesome psycho-thriller features one of the first decapitations in the history of this genre.Watch "Dementia 13" in the dark and feel the creeping terror.
