(2009) Directed by Jason Impey
Tormented is another film from Jason Impey and is a very competent short that he also wrote, edited and produced. The editing is good as the movie flows seamlessly from scene to scene with beautiful, natural lighting that never seems forced or fake and the acting by the films only two actors (Rami Hilmi from Tortured also shows up as Robert in this film) is good also.
Plot in one sentence: A maniac kidnaps Faye, a seemingly innocent girl to take revenge.
Certain moments of brutality did feel orgasmic, appealing to a misogynist in me; Pacing is good, film never feels drawn out; -some nice cinematography;
Acting is a lot more confident than in previous Impey efforts.
Rami Hilmi and Helen Clifford did a credible job with their parts. The bulk of the film really rests on their performances
(2010) Directed by Jason Impey
An amorous couple finish making out. They decide to entertain each other by telling scary stories about the notorious exploits of local serial killers.
First , most tense, and gripping vignette, “Tormented” – Lovely young Faye (a credible and sympathetic performance by the fetching Helen Clifford) gets abducted and severely manhandled by the angry and deadly Robert (excellently essayed with savage and frightening intensity by Rami Hilmi). This particular yarn packs a pretty strong punch, largely to Robert’s unexpectedly poignant back story and the sturdy acting by the two leads.
“Think global, kill local.”
