Storyline

A shocking family portrait. A boy oozing blood and saliva, bound by ropes and handcuffs, imprisoned in an animal cage. A deeply religious mother who believes her son is controlled by the devil. A Catholic priest devoted to saving his family, who tries to cure his deranged younger brother - but 13-year-old Jimmy Morgan is possessed by an evil too powerful to be exorcised by any religion. After escaping from a mental institution, Jimmy is back with a vengeance - and an army of children who follow his every murderous desire. The town trembles in fear as the youths attack and abduct its residents - innocent and guilty alike - dragging their victims to an abandoned castle and subjecting them to grisly torments deep within its underground tunnels. Those who discover the terrible secret behind the disappearances and deaths don't live long enough to tell it. The teacher, the doctor, even Jimmy's own brother and mother, will all confront their fates in the Torture Chamber. Written by Chamber Productions, LLC

Torture Chamber: Worse than I even feared
5 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

With a title like Torture Chamber I assumed this was a torture porn effort but it's something even worse.

Torture Chamber tells the fragmented story of a horribly burnt child who his mother claims is pure evil. He has rounded up the other children from the burns unit and goes on a murder/torture spree with them.

Trouble is it's all so very bad. Kids are simply not scary, apparently the child has powers but it's neither explained how or exactly what they are and the whole thing is just a bit of a mess.

Production values are there alas the competent writing staff clearly weren't.

The Good:

I'll get back to you on that one

The Bad:

Dreadful sound balancing in places

Messy storyline

Bland cast

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

One line of the lords prayer will get a car started

Kids are not and will never be good antagonists
