Movie: The Tortured (2010)
Cast: Erika Christensen, Jesse Metcalfe, Bill Lippincott
Rating: 4/5


From the makers of the famous SAW series comes a nerve wrecking, gut wrenching thriller that takes vengeance and pain to the next level. When one almost thought that pain and gore could go no further than what John Cramer or the Jigsaw did to people, The Tortured comes with a situation that can make people go just a step further and be just a step more painful and disgusting!
Twisted Pictures has more recently gone towards amalgamating social issues with pain, gore and vengeance, a formula that gave a new life to the sinking SAW franchise. With Saw 6 a success, they have come up with another film that revolves around a couple coping up with their child's abduction and murder. They blame each other and finally decide that the only one worthy of blame and punishment was the kidnapper and murderer. They steal him from the prison and hold him in the basement of an old house to torture him to death, a death so painful that it would satisfy their souls!
The rest is a gore-filled emotional journey that is not for the weak hearted. It worked for me though, because I am a fan of such films but for others it might be a little too much.
All in all, The Tortured is a good film with a strong story and a great message. The end is a masterpiece and takes the film to a whole new level! Do watch it, but don't eat too much before you do it!
