Dementamania premiere interviews frightfest 2013
On the morning of Friday the 13th, 2013 software analyst Edward Arkham (Sam Robertson) is bitten by a hornet, marking the beginning of a disastrous day. Several of his bosses and co-workers make mention to Edward leaving the department and possibly losing his job and to make matters worse, the insect bite is beginning to turn into a terrible rash. Throughout all of this Edward seems to be followed by the strange Nicholas LeMarchand (Vincent Regan), who appears to know everything that Edward is feeling or thinking.
Critical reception for Dementamania has been mixed. Twitch Film and Ain't It Cool News both wrote mostly positive reviews for the film, and Twitch Film wrote that it was "an interesting look at the mundane-ness of life, and how we might be the ones to make it mundane, about how our imaginations can sometimes get the better of us, and how acting out might not always be the best option." Dread Central and Grolsch Film Works both wrote more critical reviews for the movie, and Dread Central praised Robertson's acting while criticizing the film's pacing and commenting that it was overly predictable.
