unexpected awesomeness
23 October 2013 | by mczulu72See all my reviews

If you are a horror fan you owe it to yourself to seek this out. Far from "torture porn", this horrifically funny short doesn't overstay its welcome. But the best surprise is how well it's acted. Craig Gunn's performance is top notch and he deserves his best actor award. But Kevin Kincaid and Francine Deschepper shouldn't be overlooked. Their fine performances help make Torturous shine. It's is currently making the film fest circuit and has won eight awards so far including six for best film in various categories and one for Craig Gunn for best actor.
