The story of a successful analyst with a leading IT consultancy, but after years of routine take their toll, the unbearable daily monotony fuels his frustration and bitterness. When Edward is stung by a mysterious bug, an ugly and painful rash develops which unlocks a secret world inside his head causing nightmarish fantasies to manifest within vivid hallucinations. As the aggressive rash spreads and threatens to envelop his entire body, his visions become more terrifying and reality begins to drift further from his grasp.
“We exist in a world that is plagued with injustice and corruption, bureaucracy and hypocrisy, the negative effects of which often manifest in violence” says writer and producer Anis Shlewet wrily.
Ronin Pictures and Green Screen Productions present DEMENTAMANIA, written by Anis Shlewet who also produced alongside James T. Ryan. The film is directed by Kit Ryan (Botched, winner of Best Feature New York City Horror Film Festival 2007). Alan Latham, Managing Director of Green Screen Productions, is co-producer and Terence Ryan, acclaimed film director and producer is executive producer. Acclaimed composer Guy Farley produced the original soundtrack.
The film will open in selected cinemas across the UK, including Rich Mix Cinema, Bethnal Green and Peckham Plex, Peckham in South London.
