Consensus: It relies too heavily on American slasher cliches, but Tormented is a timely, funny, and even somewhat touching entry in the high school horror genre.

Nigel Floyd
Time Out

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.

By the end, "Tormented" is such a listless take on a potentially interesting idea that it feels like its own remake.

Observer (UK)

It's well enough made, fairly inventive and the bullies practise safe sex. But the film tips its hand a little too early.

Fan The Fire

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.

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.

Daily Record (UK)

The film does deliver a high gore quotient which should keep fans of the genre happy.

Mike McGranaghan
Aisle Seat

A gruesome, edgy, ambitious, and sometimes funny horror tale that doesn't shy away from exploring adolescent cruelty.

Times (UK)

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.

The Mail on Sunday (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.

Ugh! Can you get more unimaginative?! The film's message should be that the true "Tormented" ones are those who paid $10 for a ticket....

There's a good deal of humor and a few nasty kills so other than an annoyingly "hip" soundtrack Tormented is a moderately successful newgen… More

Cast performs well all things considered, but the script underwhelms and the plot brings nothing new to the table.
