Black Torment (2009) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This genuinely disturbing ‘60s horror-mystery movie from director Robert Hartford-Davis (Corruption, Bloodsuckers, The Fiend) is hailed as a British gothic masterpiece. The film follows Sir John Fordyce, a nobleman who returns after a long absence to his country estate with a new bride. However, his honeymoon is quickly cut short when he finds himself under suspicion from angry locals for the rape and brutal murder of a young village girl. Despite Sir John’s professed innocence, a growing hysteria unfolds as more strange events occur around him…
In the tradition of Hammer Horror, but in the style of ‘60s Italian horrors, Black Torment is an an impressive and chilling period piece that sets the mood for horror and melodrama, complemented by plenty of heaving bosoms, galloping horses and swashbuckling sword fights with 18th century aristocrats.
