An emotionally tortured teenager returns from the grave and promptly makes life hell for those who ostracized him, in this jet-black horror comedy with echoes of Carrie At the center of the British secondary school in question is Justine (Tuppence Middleton), a pampered, elitist rich bitch. Following the suicide of a bullied classmate - overweight, asthmatic Darren Mullett (Calvin Dean) - Justine tries to wheedle her way into the "in crowd," whose members are every bit as snotty and obnoxious as she is, and strikes up a torrid affair with Alexis (Dimitri Leonidas), the most popular… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Solid storytelling, attractive cast and modish updates are let down by a lack of scares and jokes. IMHO not gr8, don't xpkt to LOL."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"By the end, "Tormented" is such a listless take on a potentially interesting idea that it feels like its own remake."
‑ Peter Sobczynski, eFilmCritic.com
"It's well enough made, fairly inventive and the bullies practise safe sex. But the film tips its hand a little too early."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"A smart, competent horror-com that's easily a match for its US counterparts."
‑ Rosie Fletcher, SFX Magazine
"The qualitative bar for execrable homegrown comedy-horror was recently set at ground level by Lesbian Vampire Killers, here is a movie so inept and ill-conceived that it manages to scrape a place for itself directly below that particular abomination."
‑ Kevin Maher, Times [UK]
"Under-exploring the big reveal of the murderer and dragging the set plays out a little too long, Tormented's early promise fails to pull home."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"There's a huge amount of respect for the horror side of things here as well. If it sounds like your cup of tea, then dive in as soon as you possibly can."
‑ Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton, Dread Central
"The film does deliver a high gore quotient which should keep fans of the genre happy."
‑ , Daily Record [UK]
"It's diverting, occasionally moving, and has two secret weapons, teen heart-throb Alex Pettyfer and newcomer Tuppence Middleton."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"Despite its weaknesses, though, there's something appealing about Tormented. It may or may not portend a revival of popular British horror, but at least no one can mistake this for the grim compulsions of the torture-porn aficionado."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian
"A gruesome, edgy, ambitious, and sometimes funny horror tale that doesn't shy away from exploring adolescent cruelty."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Jon Wright's film delivers its shocks as efficiently as the average American equivalent. Its British jokiness makes it less scary than it perhaps could have been, but it gains more from this trade-off than it loses."
‑ Edward Porter, Times [UK]
"Brilliantly funny at times, it's well worth a look - even if the script is as holey as some of the bullies end up."
‑ , Sunday Mail [UK]
"A for effort, C for artistry, this wayward teen of a movie is confusing, amusing and scary - a bit like school itself."
‑ Matt Glasby, Film4
"There's enough vitriolic bitching among the bullying contingent to make Jon Wright's movie trashily entertaining up to a point."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
