State of Mind

State of Mind

Director: Reginald Anderson Cast: Dominiek Berten, Pablo Catry, Lisa Gaye



This Belgian-French-Dutch co-production helmed by director Reginald Adamson went unreleased for four years, then disappeared for another four until being picked up by Troma in 2000. Frequent Troma stars Don Hannah and Lisa Gaye are in the cast, but the film's real draw is action star Fred Williamson as a detective investigating what happened to them after their car crashed. What Williamson and his partner (The Stepfather's Jill Schoelen) don't know is that the couple survived and were taken in by a creepy middle-aged woman named Barbara (Manouk van der Meulen) who apparently took lessons in nursing from Misery. Barbara feeds the two survivors drugs, lies to the police, and drifts in and out of sanity as the situation brings back traumatic memories from her own past. Various unrelated murders ensue (cult icon Jacinto Molina, aka "Paul Naschy" dies in the opening sequence) and the police begin to close in, but as has become standard in such films, Barbara's prisoners exact their own special kind of revenge before the bumbling authorities can intervene.
