Laughable rape and revenge flick.
26 January 2009 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

The plot of "Demented" centers around attractive Linda Rodgers,whose life and sanity is destroyed when one day whilst tending to her horses she is horrifically gang raped in the stables by four thugs.She begins having horrific hallucinations about her rapists and finally breaks down and extracts a cruel and violent revenge on four masked youths.The tormented woman dispatches the teenage pranksters with a shotgun,a meat cleaver and in the films show stopping highlight even castrates one using a coil of piano wire.Pretty exploitative rape and revenge flick with plenty of sleaze and incredibly annoying heroine.The performance of Sallee Elyse is utterly horrible and her high pitched voice truly get on my nerves.Overall,"Demented" completely fails to engage the viewers emotionally and is basically worthless.5 out of 10.Only for completists of rape and revenge sub-genre.
