The quiet Rose works in women's fashion clothing, hoping to be a designer. A traffic accident damages her face. She gets experimental stem cell treatment, leaving her stronger and prettier than ever - but there's a side effect.
A woman is gang-raped in a horse's stable, and even though the rapists are caught and imprisoned, she is harassed many moons later by ghastly visions of her tormentors, while her husband philanders and every little thing frightens her out of her wits.Written by

20th Century Fox passed on picking this film up for theatrical distribution because of the fact that porn star Harry Reems plays the male lead role. See more »
Boy this is a switch, I thought you'd be mad as hell at me.
Mad? Definitely not! Let's just say I'm able to handle the situation.

No no, leave it for now! It turns me on.
Lady, you are definitely weird.

The only film I've ever seen that receives an IMDB rating of 1!
"Demented" is the undisputed champion of bad movies! And I've seen plenty of them! At least all the bad movies I've seen have some sort of low-grade cheap entertainment value. "Demented" does not! The back of the video box makes it sound much better than it actually is, take it from me, this movie is painful!
The lead actress, Sallee Elysse, challenges only Chesty Morgan and Connie Mason when it comes to bad acting! Whose girlfriend was she? The producer? The screenwriter? No casting director in their right mind would cast her unless she was somebody's girlfriend. The one redeeming value of her performance: she improves a bit when she loses her mind, but that bit is about the size of a breadcrumb. Then, she does flash her chest a lot and that makes up a bit for her ineptitude. The only actor worth noting is Harry Reems (billed here as Bruce Gilchrist), who is good as usual. I had a feeling it was him because of his famous handlebars moustache and it seems weird seeing him involved in simulated sex with his mistress when he can be seen performing hardcore sex in earlier films!
"Demented" borrows liberally from "Last House on the Left", "I Spit On Your Grave", and "Mother's Day". Of course, it has none of the power or "finesse" of those films. The acting is horrible (save Harry Reems/Bruce Gilchrist), none of the plot is very believable and Elysse makes for an annoying rape victim. All she does in her character portrayal is whine about being raped, go crazy and bitch, and cry in a high-pitched whine that has no rival on the annoying scale! Do not even rent this out of curiosity, please just avoid it at all costs! "Demented" deserves to be burnt, blown up, ripped apart by a pack of dogs, I think I've made my point.
