Dementia 13 was a 1963 low-budget horror picture directed by a young Francis Ford Coppola. Yes, that Francis Ford Coppola, as in The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, The Outsiders and Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Richard LeMay (The Dark Rite, Naked As We Come) will direct and the film was written by Dan DeFilippo (The Invaders) and Justin Smith (SiREN, The Boy). The cast includes Julia Campanelli (Walking Away), Ana Isabelle (The Eye) and Marianne Noscheze (Horror Time). “Casters”).
