Heading into Ryan Nicholson's Torched, I was aware that it was a short flick, some of my horror pals enjoyed it, and that there's some cool torture scenes. It was short, there were some cool torture scenes, but I wouldn't say I enjoyed it as much as the other reviewers on here.
Story is about a chick that gets raped. Later on the same day another attempt is made, but this time chicky-poo turns the table and takes the attacker out of commission. Now he's tied up in her apartment, and she's looking for some payback. All the while she's playing detective/party girl. What follows is a slightly above average revenge tale with some pretty awesome make-up and blood fx.
I understand how people are saying for this type of movie (low-budget indy horror) the acting was much better than average. Well, I suppose it is. The lead actress did an alright job when acting normal but when she got mad and yelled...I couldn't take it serious...it was laughable. Her co-worker chick was pathetically average, the apartment dude and the doctor were probably the best actors in this movie. The worst actor by far in this flick was the dude getting "Torchered." He was getting some serious pain dealt on him and all he'd do was some loud half yell/half moaning? I'd be screaming bloody murder, writhing, throwing myself all over the place. And the ending, it was sudden, felt kind of jumbled and kind of silly. It was nothing incredibly shocking, but I guess it was kind of unique.
Even though I've dissed this movie some, Torched is definitely a flick any self-respecting hardcore horror fan should check out. I'm not saying I'll be recommending it, unless someone asks me for an extreme movie with a short running time. But it's an extreme, gritty, low-budget independent horror flick that will appeal to a lot of horror fans. Unfortunately I wasn't one of them. But I do have to say again that the fx was pretty sweet. The skin melt scene especially. 6.5 outta 10
