Customer Reviews

Things go along pretty much as you would expect and the whole thing ends up just as you thought it would.
Gary F. Taylor
Then there is the ending, which actually provides a nice little ghost story twist, even if the execution of the scene tends towards the melodramatic.
Lawrance Bernabo
Tormented is one of the more interesting of the old black and white horror movies, though not one of the scariest.
R. Christenson / Lunamation

Tormented(1960) is a decent, unique, supernatural horror film from director Bert I. Gordon. A jazz musician(Richard Carlson) lets his sexy, well-endowed mistress(Juli Reding) die in an accident so he can marry a rich woman. She comes back from the grave as a ghost and she...torments him! Susan Gordon plays a 12 year old girl who suspects the piano player is guilty of something. Juli Reding was ten times sexier than Marilyn Monroe and she never reached stardom! Joel and the Robots from Mystery Science Theater 3000 did poke fun of this movie. Keep in mind that Tormented is also a British horror film made in 2009. Albert Glasser wrote the music score for Tormented(1960); keep in mind, it uses stock music from House on Haunted Hill(1959). Susan Gordon is adorable as 12 year old Sandy. Some people may remember her from a Twilight Zone episode. Some people claim that the international version of Tormented(1960) has alternate scenes of a nude Juli Reding! Tormented is a fun piece of cheese and it's worth watching if you can find it on late night TV or a budget DVD.

. As a true horror flick, you can definitely do worse than this. The acting ranges from average to bad (there's a big shock, right?), the special effects are pretty cheesy, the plot is fairly lame, the direction equally so, the screenplay fairly trite -- in other words, all the necessary ingredients for a great B-horror movie experience. And despite it all, there are a few moments here when you'll definitely feel the hairs at the back of your neck bristle. This is great for an evening of 1-2 equally bad/good flicks, some popcorn and maybe a beer or two. For this price, there's no way to go wrong.

Of the countless number of late night low budget horror movies that I saw on TV as a kid, none scared me more than TORMENTED did. It's basically a B movie version of 1944's THE UNINVITED with a little of A PLACE IN THE SUN thrown in for good measure. Jazz pianist (Richard Carlson) is getting ready to marry his wealthy fiance' (Lugene Sanders) but ex-girlfriend (Marilyn Monroe lookalike Juli Reding) threatens to tell all. During an argument at the local lighthouse, she falls to her death when Carlson fails to help her. Now the wedding can proceed without a hitch, right? WRONG! Reding comes back as a vengeful ghost who eventually gets her man but not before some serious haunting occurs that includes disembodied body parts and an interrupted wedding ceremony. It was the ceremony with its wilting flowers and windblown prayer book along with the final appearance of the ghost that really got me. At age 10 it gave me bad dreams (and a fear of blondes). Today I can enjoy it for what it is, a cheap but well made ghost story .

Director Bert I. Gordon (Mister B.I.G.) is best known for his bargain basement, special effects laden "extravaganzas" such as THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN and THE FOOD OF THE GODS but here, not having to make things large or backgrounds small, his effects are surprisingly "effective". Up to this point I had always seen Richard Carlson as a good guy in movies like CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON and IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE. Seeing him play a murderer was a little unsettling. I was also fascinated with lighthouses and this was the first time I had seen a movie involving a haunted one which is why it made such an impression. This new Warner Archive DVD of TORMRNTED uses a first generation print that looks better than it did on my TV all those years ago.

Format: DVD
B movie maven Bert I. Gordon brought us TORMENTED in the early sixties, not long after the prime psychological thriller PSYCHO filled audience's hearts with a new kind of fear---not monsters, but monsters within us. In TORMENTED, Richard Carlson mugs his way through the role of jazz pianist Tom Stewart, who tells his latest mistress (played by the bosomy Juli Reding) that their affair is over and he is planning on marrying the wealthy daughter of a corporate giant. She taunts him and in an accident at the lighthouse, she falls to her death. Tom could have saved her, but he lets her die. The movie grows a little tedious as we wonder if Tom's guilty conscience is getting the better of him, or is the ghost of Vi walking the beaches? The special effects are appropriately laughable and the ending is telegraphed from the moment Vi falls to her death, but for a psychological B movie ala DEMENTIA 13, TORMENTED is fairly enjoyable.

Pretty good low-budget ghost story. A man, due to marry an heiress, is being threatened by a former flame with exposure if he doesn't return to her. They meet at an abandoned lighthouse on an island resort where he is staying and, though he does not deliberately plan it, he allows her to fall from the structure to her death in the water. After that he is consistently tormented by her ghost, taunting him and telling his he will always belong to her. I bought the Warner Archives DVD release and that is the one to get. The quality is as perfect as it will ever be and the cover art is great. Highly recommended for fans of the genre.

I don't remember how I stumbled upon this movie but the description triggered my memory. As a child, I saw a movie with this ending and over the years , I've been clueless as to which movie it was. I had no title only a vague memory of the ending. I stepped out on Faith believing this was the missing movie and it is! Now, if anyone knows the title of a horror movie from the 1950s in which a woman strikes a bargain with a voodoo priest for eternal beauty if she drinks a potion when she starts to feel or see that she's aging, please let me know.
