Critic Consensus: It relies too heavily on American slasher cliches, but Tormented is a timely, funny, and even somewhat touching entry in the high school horror genre.

Critic Reviews for Tormented
Solid storytelling, attractive cast and modish updates are let down by a lack of scares and jokes. IMHO not gr8, don't xpkt to LOL.
Under-exploring the big reveal of the murderer and dragging the set plays out a little too long, Tormented's early promise fails to pull home.
A gruesome, edgy, ambitious, and sometimes funny horror tale that doesn't shy away from exploring adolescent cruelty.
By the end, "Tormented" is such a listless take on a potentially interesting idea that it feels like its own remake.
There's a huge amount of respect for the horror side of things here as well. If it sounds like your cup of tea, then dive in as soon as you possibly can.
Audience Reviews for Tormented
Exceptionally c grade, but I did watch it all. It had something despite the hammy acting and stereotypes.
Lost Me ...............spoiler .....................................................,....when dead boy killed the only friend he had. I didn't get that.
I think it was making a point about bullying. I commend that. But overall the movie is a fail.
I did like the Justine character but the rest were pretty vile.
Ugh! Can you get more unimaginative?! The film's message should be that the true "Tormented" ones are those who paid $10 for a ticket....
There's a good deal of humor and a few nasty kills so other than an annoyingly "hip" soundtrack Tormented is a moderately successful newgen slasher that features a reasonable motive and beats the pants off of most others that have tried at the attempt.
