- Original theatrical trailer
Taking a tabloid hot potato--school bullying--and turning it into an effective and very British horror film, Tormented begins as the pupils of a suitably homogenous school gather at the funeral for one of their classmates, Darren Mullet. It quickly transpires that not many people knew him, and very few liked him, with even Tuppence Middleton’s head girl having to say words at his funeral when she seemingly barely had a nice word to say about him in real life. Post-funeral, everyone soon goes back to business as usual, with a party on the agenda. But then the chills start coming, as mobile phones start ringing, and the calls seem to be coming from the supposedly-deceased Mullet.
It’s a simple premise, and one that allows the script of Tormented to make one or two points about bullying, before getting down to its main business of being a better-than-expected teen horror movie. This is the kind of thing that generally American filmmakers have done best over the years, but thanks to a surprisingly strong teen cast, it turns out the film makers of Britain are more than up to the challenge, too.
Writer Stephen Prentice and director Jon Wright wisely take their time sliding the pieces of Tormented into place, establishing their characters and generally initiating in most cases plenty of reason why they should meet their maker. Director Wright then proves he’s an able student of the genre by framing some well-managed jumps, and while the ending is telegraphed some distance away, Tormented is an effective and really rather good little horror movie. Much better than you’re probably expecting, too… --Simon BrewSee all Product Description

But Alexis and his friends aren't quite as hip and glam as they seem. Underneath the clique's veneer lurks a pack of vicious tormentors who find it vastly amusing to tease anyone they consider worthless.
Their main target Darren Mullett, was bullied him to death by the crowd. The overweight, asthmatic nerd was so relentlessly victimised by their taunts, website intimidation and mobile phone recordings, he committed suicide.
But death is not going to stop Darren finding the courage to stand up for himself. With nothing left to lose, he takes revenge on his former classmates.
And the In-Crowd soon discover to their horror there is no point reasoning with a very angry entity......
The first time I saw this movie, I wasn't very impressed with it. I found it to be immature, pretty inane, and rather boring. But for some reason, I was always compelled to watch it again for some reason. The film had something, and I feel that my shortcomings of dismissing it as just a British slasher wannabe was unfair.
On second viewing, yes, it's much more than bullies getting their just desserts, it's also about fitting in, do we actually fit in? And why do we want to fit in? For status? Justine clearly doesn't need status, she's a free bird, able to fit in wherever she wants, and it appears as Darren is following her path with her, realising that she isn't the person he was infatuated with, as the 'In-crowds' amalgamated personalities are slowly melding with hers.Read more ›
A bullied teenager at Fairview High School takes his own life but appears to have come back from the dead to take revenge on his classmates.
Gruesome, fun and flavoured by pinches of satire, Tormented is a far better film than the internet ratings suggest. The serious subject of bullying makes its point, particularly late in the proceedings, but the makers are more interested in capturing the spirit of the techno teen times while focusing on the antagonists in their natural habitat. They are a dislikable bunch, not only in how they treat those they view as inferior to themselves, but also to each other. Even the central "couple" at the core of the plotting, the closest the film has to someone for us to side with as they strive to survive, come with bile baggage that reveals itself as we hurtle towards a deliciously spiky finale. There is much self-absorption and crudeness, sexulisation and ignorance, it's a bit of a kicker is this, but we are firmly on the side of the recently departed Darren Mullet (Calvin Dean). The cast performances are a mixed bunch, but this hardly hurts the picture, while serious gore hounds will lament the lack of close ups for the "killer" scenes. But this is more than a generic slasher, it has psychological smarts and nifty observations on modern technology's usage for cruel intimidation. It also knows how to have a good time, and you should too. 7/10
it's a clever idea and the moral is good even though its not very realistic but when is a horror movie?
someone on a 1* review said the brits have trouble making slasher movies like the americans but ive seen a few slasher movies in my time and this is very good.
it's funny too as the comedy horror genre suggests and the actors are also very good
a couple of people from skins and some other quite well known british actors not to mention alex pettyfer who has now made his name in hollywood.
plus he's not the worst looking guy ever ;)

I love the movie tormented. I wasn't waiting long for this DVD to arrive! Amazing quality and the service was amazing!Published 4 months ago by Bethany Pickersgill
If I knew how to give this less than one star I would! The only redeeming feature about this predictable bloodbath of a tale is the attractive young cast. Read morePublished on 14 July 2014 by Fbm Dakin
