Deanna, a young, pretty and upwardly mobile nurse is about to face the most difficult challenge of her life...Deciding whether five men should live or die. In a moment which would change her life forever, Deanna is brutally raped, but the pain she suffered is nothing compared to that which her five suspects are about to endure. One by one, Deanna avenges her rape. Do the men deserve the punishment she inflicts upon them, or the death they will soon desire? Only Deanna will decide who will survive and who gets Torched.

Torched doesn't reach feature length at only 44 minutes, but it's 44 minutes well spent if you like this kind of thing as director Ryan Nicholson starts the film off nasty, and manages to carry this on throughout. Right at the start, we witness a nurse being raped and from there she decides it's time for revenge, as someone else tries to attack her, but she manages to get the better of him with a stun gun - and then the fun starts! The film takes obvious influence from the classic seventies crop of 'rape and revenge' films, such as I Spit on Your Grave. The film also takes influence from this new wave of modern day Video Nasties, which includes films such as Murder-Set-Pieces and August Underground. Nicholson gives the film a hard rock score, which works rather well when it's put against a backdrop of grisly and vile torture. There isn't very much of this film, and what there is of it is unlikely to make anyone want to stand up and applaud; but Torched is a more than decent way to spend three quarters of an hour for fans of sick and twisted horror movies.
