The new zom-com Tormented is set to make its May 22nd debut in the UK, and we’ve got a look at the trailer for ya!
The British horror/comedy is being produced via the BBC and Screen West Midlands with April Pearson, Larissa Wilson, Mary Nighy (daughter of Underworld/Shaun of the Dead‘s Bill Nighy), and Dimitri Leonidas starring. Look for more updates on Tormented soon.
“Justine Fielding is the gorgeous head girl of her plush suburban grammar school, Fairview High. She has just won a place at Oxford University when in-crowd hunk Alexis asks her out on a date. All seems perfect … except that Alexis and his circle of friends aren’t quite as good as they look. Led by tormentor-in-chief Bradley, the clique’s ‘too cool for school’ veneer hides a pack of inventive and merciless bullies who find it vastly amusing to persistently tease anyone they consider a worthless loser.
Their main target, Darren Mullett, knows what his classmates did last summer. They bullied him to death. The overweight, asthmatic nerd was so relentlessly victimized by their cruel taunts, website intimidation, and ‘happy slapping’ mobile phone recordings he committed suicide. But being dead allows Darren to finally find the courage to stand up for himself. With nothing left to lose, he takes murderous revenge on his former classmates in increasingly brutal, bloody, and imaginative ways. ”
