Arriving in UK cinemas on May 22 is Jon Wright’s Tormented, a school-set teen horror pic about a bullied teen who comes back from the dead to take his revenge. While the trailer finally made its way online last week, this afternoon we scored a look at the official UK quad (poster) for the film, along with some hi-res postcards, new images and an ultra-long synopsis, all of which can be viewed inside. Watch for a review this May.
TORMENTED, a sexy, scary high school horror movie that smells like teen spirit…with a hint of rotting flesh! From classrooms and cafeterias, to school ties and pool parties, teenage traumas full of promise, pimples and panic get a terrifying makeover as the best days of your lives become your worst nightmare.
Justine Fielding (TUPPENCE MIDDLETON) is the gorgeous head girl of her plush suburban grammar school Fairview High. She has just won a place at Oxford University when In-Crowd hunk Alexis (DIMITRI LEONIDAS) asks her out on a date.
All seems perfect…. except that Alexis and his circle of friends aren’t quite as hip and glam as they seem. Underneath the clique’s `too cool for school veneer’ lurks a pack of vicious peer pressure tormentors who find it vastly amusing to persistently tease anyone they consider worthless losers.
Their main target Darren Mullett (CALVIN DEAN) knows what his classmates did last summer. They bullied him to death. The overweight, asthmatic nerd was so relentlessly victimized by their cruel taunts, website intimidation and `happy slapping’ mobile phone recordings he committed suicide.
But death is not going to stop Darren finally finding the courage to stand up for himself. With nothing left to lose, he takes murderous revenge on his former classmates in increasingly brutal, bloody and imaginative ways. And the In-Crowd soon discover to their horror there is no point reasoning with a very angry zombie ghost.
Tormented is released in UK cinemas 22nd May
