Still looking for that last-minute horror movie to round out your exhaustive Halloween viewing schedule? Not really in the mood to separate your expanding backside from your worn yet strangely comfortable living room couch to pay a visit to your local neighborhood video store? If so, IFC On Demand would love nothing more than to assist your lazy behind in the selection process. John Wright’s gruesome teen horror/comedy “Tormented” is currently streaming in select markets across the country. Having seen the film, I can honestly say it’s worth a look. That said, anyone with a distaste for “I Know What You Did Last Summer” or social networking sites might want to skip this one. You have been suitably, and thoroughly, warned.
Let’s put a finer point on the plot details:
The film centers on Darren Mullet, a bullied asthmatic, driven to suicide by his tormented life – ignored by his parents, ridiculed by his teachers and bullied at school. He returns from the dead to pay his teenage tormentors a final visit.
I know the premise sounds horribly cliche, but it’s actually not as bad as some may initially believe. Curious parties can check out the trailer below. If you need more evidence before shelling out your hard-earned cash to stream this flick directly into your living room, The Official Tormented Movie Blog is offering up the first 12 minutes of the film for absolutely nothing. Pop over and take a peak.
