Rather creepy little ghost story from Mr BIG
30 December 2005 | by chris_gaskin123See all my reviews

Tormented is quite a scary ghost story from Mr Big. No giant insects in it though.

On a remote island,a musician's former lover falls to her death from a lighthouse even though he could have stopped her. He then tries to carry on with his life and prepare for his forthcoming wedding but she comes back to haunt him. This leads to many strange and creepy happenings including a record player playing on its own accord, the supposedly disused lighthouse working, footprints in the sand and the flowers wilting at his wedding. She also causes him to murder a young man. He then returns to the lighthouse to confront the ghost...

Despite reading bad reviews about this movie, I found it quite enjoyable and certainly scary at times.

The cast includes sci-fi/horror regular Richard Carlson (It Came From Outer Space, Creature From the Black Lagoon), Mr Big's daughter Susan Gorden, Lugene Sanders, Juli Reding, Joe Turkel and Gene Roth (Earth vs the Spider).

Catch this if you get the chance. Excellent despite the low budget.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
