Sadie mentions Misery (1990), saying Kathy Bates was "very good in it". Billy Zane, who plays Kevin, worked with Bates in Titanic (1997). Additionally, Kevin's neighbor, Mrs. Wilkes, has the same surname as Bates' character in 'Misery'. See more »

Ten minutes into Scorned I was pretty confident this would be truly awful however to my surprise it actually ends up being a slightly sick, highly ridiculous but enjoyable thriller.
Scorned doesn't waste much time in setting the scene as Billy Zane and his mistress find out that Annalynn McCord is not a woman who takes being cheated on very well. McCord is excellent in this and really carries the film as the nutty scorned woman who gleefully carries out her own brand of revenge. If you have a weak stomach then you had best avoid this one.
If this film had taken itself seriously then it just wouldn't have worked but it's all so obviously tongue in cheek that it exudes it's own surprising charm.
This is a surprisingly good film and one that entertains throughout, well after the ropey first ten minutes anyway. A much better film than it's current rating of 4.5 would suggest.
