(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
(2011) Directed by Jason Impey
The whole vibe of the film reminds of a 70′s/80′s horror movie crossed with a martial arts movie. The fight scenes between Quaid and Dillon are beautifully choreographed for a low budget feature. Also the soundtrack embellishments remind me heavily of 70′s/80′s zombie films which suits the visuals perfectly. There is a lot of great fighting and editing during the action scenes is way slicker than what you’d expect from a self-funded film where lead actors do their own stunts. THE TURNING generally feels more polished than Impey’s previous work.
“Epic fight between Kemal Yildirim and Rami Hilmi is a definite highlight.”
