A good find by the folks at BoingBoing: Dementia 13, Francis Ford Coppola’s slasher/thriller from 1963, can be downloaded for free over at Archive.org. You can watch an embedded version above, or download an AVI file here. Here’s the gist of the plot: “An old Irish family is haunted by dark secrets around the death of a little girl seven years earlier. Two women, one married into the family and one soon to be, start unraveling the secrets at a price that they couldn’t have imagined.” Although Coppola had two prior films under his belt, Dementia 13 is considered his first mainstream, “legitimate” directorial effort.
