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.

I honestly didn't expect much from this one. All I had heard about this film was that director Ryan Nicholson was involved with AUGUST UNDERGROUND'S MORDUM, and about the infamous "nut toasting" scene. I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised by the execution (no pun...) of this film.
TORCHED is about a woman who is raped leaving her apartment building. Later that evening she is attacked again but wards off the attacker with a stun gun. She restrains him and spends a week torturing him in some pretty brutal fashions (including some of the aforementioned blow-torch fun, and some pretty twisted penile-needle torture...).
TORCHED is actually a pretty strong film in all respects. The acting is above par for a film in this budget range, the story is decent and has a couple of twists, and the gore FX are pretty top-notch. I personally dig the rape/revenge genre as a whole, and TORCHED is another good entry. I'm very interested to see what else Nicholson brings to the table in upcoming features, and am anxiously awaiting LIVE FEED. Also, the soundtrack features some great music, including NECRO and ILL BILL. Recommended - 8.5/10
