As a huge fan of the home invasion sub-genre, I always welcome new additions with open arms. Especially when they feature killers with Mickey Mouse ears. Read on for details about Torment!
Variety reports that Vertical Entertainment has inked a deal for the U.S. rights to the holiday home invasion film, which screens this week at Berlin’s Entertainment Film Market.
Directed by Jordan Baker, the flick stars Robin Dunne (“Sanctuary”), Katharine Isabelle (American Mary, Ginger Snaps) and Peter DaCunha (Haunter) as the members of an ill-fated family who fall prey to a cult of sadistic madmen at their isolated country house.
Borga Dorter produces alongside Baker.
Vertical will release Torment in U.S. cinemas early this summer.
Newlyweds Sarah and Cory Morgan have decided to take a relaxing holiday with Cory’s seven-year-old son, Liam, to try to smooth over some of the teething problems Liam is having with his new mom. Despite the idyllic location of Cory’s isolated and luxurious country house, the family members soon realize they have made a mistake by going there. The house brings back too many painful memories of Liam’s deceased mother, and the boy reacts angrily, punishing Sarah for trying to take his mom’s place.
However, the boy’s discomfort is soon put to one side when they realize that someone has been using the house in their absence. After having a police officer inspect the house and reassure them that there’s nothing to worry about, the couple decides that they will stay, at least for one night. Another big mistake.
Their unwanted house guests will soon reveal themselves, and the family will find itself caught up in a fight for their lives. What was planned as a relaxing getaway quickly turns into their worst nightmare as they find themselves on a holiday from hell.
