When David O'Reilly (Giles Alderson) turns up in the middle of the night at the home of his friends Alex and Kate (Nicholas Shaw and Zoe Richards) he tells them that his girlfriend has been cheating on him and they invite him to stay. But David has not told them everything. For the past fortnight he has been experiencing terrifying visions and happenings in his home. Will moving house be enough to rid David of his demons?

!!!WARNING!MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

Alex(Nicholas Shaw) and Kate(Zoe Richards) are enjoying a lazy night in, a takeaway followed by a dvd. It's close to midnight and there's a knocking at the door. Alex answers it and his friend David(Giles Alderson) rushes in, informing him that his girlfriend Sarah has been cheating on him. Alex and Kate let David stay over but soon start to regret that decision as David is not alone. He has brought something into the house with him....
I agree with the reviewer who describes the film as scary, as this little Brit horror really has something about it that gets under the skin. It's a real case of 'less is more' as half glimpsed horrors in the dark prove just as hair raising as full on blood and gore. What is so great about this film is that it is so open ended. Even the ending is ambiguous raising as many questions as answers. I like to think of it as a supernatural horror, but that could just be my personal preferences taking over, as it could just as easily be a case of David's inner demons. Whilst not totally original in its premise, 'The Torment' otherwise known as 'The Possession Of David O'Reilly' shows tremendous promise for great things to come from director Andrew Cull. I especially loved one scene when David has a second encounter with the neighbour from upstairs, Anna(Fransesca Fowler). That little sequence of chills is almost worth the admission price on its own.
A really enjoyable low budget chiller. 5 out of 5 despite the lack of extras on the dvd.

Warning: SPOILERS. I was impressed enough by some reviews to chance this, and at first it did seem to have something going for it; you have a man who shows up at a friend's flat claiming to have broken up with his partner, but as he stays the night it seems there is a lot more to it than that - he seems to be pursued by something supernatural. The character David is played very well; you find yourself infected by his nervousness, and tension grows as he spends the night in terror of some barely seen opponent. But then any and all credibility went out of the window when his friends suddenly turn into completely gullible dimwits. Nobody asks why he has tipped salt on their kitchen floor, and how far his girlfriend could have got on her 'few days away' if, as he claims, she left her bag behind. His old college chum falls instantly in with his 'demons coming to get us' routine on the basis of a lot of running about and screaming in blacked-out rooms, never once stopping to wonder - could my old pal by any chance be a paranoid delusional case? The woman of the couple does finally develop misgivings, but only after more than two days of being under seige in the place by nothing at all, and experiencing nothing that could not be accounted for by Mister Fruitcake's own tampering (including the laboriously set-up webcams monitoring the place, which are triggered by something but at first record nothing - webcams, of course, having motion sensors which start them recording the microsecond something goes past, rather than kicking in a few seconds later after what set them off can have got out of sight). Nobody checks any of the other footage, for instance to see who it was who unplugged the phone.Read more ›

I came across this by accident in a local supermarket, and as such wasn't expecting too much from this at all. It all seemed to start well. There was a palpable sense of dread, of something terrible about to happen, this was largely created by the cinematography; the camera would pan to a shadowy corridoor, or up the stairs, and linger there silently, as if waiting for something. And then the early scenes of the demons were pretty good too; you don't get to see much at all, a bulbous eye, a bit of blood and a whole lot of shadow, which is obviously a good thing for a film with a miniscule budget. The plot, however, needed a lot more focus: the makers couldn't seem to decide which way it was going: perhaps they were trying to disorientate the viewer as much as the protagonists, but this is probably giving them too much credit. They perhaps thought the ending was clever but in fact it just ends up confusing everybody. There are also a lot of unanswered questions - is Sarah dead? Were the newspaper articles of terrible deaths premonitions? Did Anna the pregnant tenant really suffer the terrible fate we saw happen to her? If it didn't, where did she go? Why salt?
So, to conclude, initially promising, but ultimately disappointing. I will add though, that the makers could well be ones to watch out for in the future.

This is a super chilling story. The portrait of a man descending into madness, or is what he sees, what's chasing him real? If you like supernatural films, check this out. Scary!

Not bad film, makes you jump now and then. If you like horror films you might enjoy this one.At the end of it i thought that it was a bit samey like a lot of horror films.

Looking at the reviews here, and elsewhere, it seems that the likelihood of your enjoying this film will depend largely on your tolerance for horror films that end without an explanation of the preceding events. To me, not only is that the films strong point, I'd go as far as to say it is THE point.

My only gripe is that there was just a little too much of the actors shrieking and darting around looking terrified (shades of 'Blair Witch').

I'm disappointed that a couple of the reviews here contain un-signposted spoilers; presumably those reviewers think that if they don't like a film it's surprises aren't worth preserving for others. That said, this really isn't a plot-driven film so don't let it put you off checking this one out if you're a horror fan in the mood for something a little left-field.
