See this movie!

I saw Torturous at the 2013 Oshkosh Horror Film Festival and it was a unanimous crowd favorite. If you get the chance to see this movie, definitely do it! The acting is spot on and the timing is great. I can't wait for it to be available on YouTube, I will definitely show all my friends! It's hard to write about it without spoilers.....let's just say there is one lucky camp counselor out there.

The beauty of this film is that it accomplishes so much in just a few minutes, you don't feel like any part of the story is left out. There's enough gore and suspense to keep the average horror fan interested without insulting the intelligence of the viewer. Definitely one of my favorites from the festival.
