Critic Reviews

  • Its clichés grow slightly funny. But not funny enough to make the endless torture scenes bearable. More...
  • [It] suggests only that ferreting out new ways to inflict pain requires more imagination than anyone on hand realized. More...
  • Ugh. More...
  • It's a revolting horror film that wastes the talents and good looks of Erika Christensen and Jesse Metcalfe in favor of severed penises and other violent atrocities performed on a kitchen table. More...
  • The torture-porn label would stick if wasn't so hard to imagine anyone getting much out of it. More...
  • The flick gets off on surgical slicings and an overall Fincheresque gloominess, the latter becoming an unwitting joke. More...
  • Lean, nasty, and patently absurd, The Tortured plays like one long scream of agony. More...
  • A stupendously inane and pointless slice of revenge-based horror whose title might as well describe the audience watching it. More...
  • The title is an apropos description of audiences who sit through this inept low-budget psychological thriller, which would be considered tasteless if it weren't so incompetent. More...
  • Robert Lieberman's Perverted Justice advert spins its wheels with scene after scene impatiently cut like a montage sequence. More...

  • A wretched, hyper-edited, hysterical mess, put together in such a way that every artifice jumps out of the screen.
