The Torment Preview

Hi folks. This week's post would have no doubt been something jolly funny or superbly insightful. Unfortunately, the day falls on the day that I move house, and thus I have been unable to find the time to put anything here.

I apologise profusely, I really tried to sort something out. Here's to next week being twice as funny/insightful/funsightful as a result!

Not to leave you empty-handed however, here's a preview for new DVD release The Torment. Enjoy!



Ever since the likes of The Blair Witch Project hit the scene, the horror genre has hugely benefited from the documentary approach. It provides a gruesomely realistic truthfullness to the story being told and The Torment is a prime example. Set for DVD release on 9 August 2010 courtesy of Momentum Pictures, this supernatural shockumentary about a demonic presence in a young couple’s home will leave you begging for anything other than sheer realism.

A tale of demonic possession, strange goings-on, and human beings tortured to the brink of insanity by forces we don’t fully understand, The Torment portrays an explanation that defies logic as the hand held, point-of-view shooting puts the audience into the characters heads. Key to the action is the fact that the haunting isn’t attached to a location but to the central character himself, David O’Reilly.

The action unfolds as David turns up in the middle of the night at the London flat of his friends Alex and Kate with the explanation that his girlfriend has left him. Feeling sorry for him, they let David stay, but are totally unaware of the real reason he’s turned up – for two weeks he’s seen and heard things that have terrified him so much, he’s fled to what he hopes will be a safe haven. The chilling story unfolds as the haunting continues over the next couple of nights with harrowing results.

Inspired by a real life domestic incident in which the police were called to a block of converted Victorian flats where a perplexing and disturbing scene confronted them, The Torment shockingly displays the fear the characters see as they try to escape the horrors they are faced with.

Thesaurus: TORMENT = anguish, suffering, agony, distress, pain, torture, ordeal, pleasure (antonym) - need we say more?
