According to actor Joe Turkel, the only thing separating Bert I. Gordon from Stanley Kubrick and Ridley Scott was "budget." It's a nice thought. TORMENTED (1960) would be a pretty good ghost story if it wasn't so literal-minded about manifesting its ghost on a low budget; on the other hand, seeing more of the curvaceous Juli Reding as the vengeful spirit (who did a nude, or at least topless, scene in the European version of the film) isn't a bad thing.

Fact is, there's not a lot for Joel & company to make fun of; it's just interesting enough to hold our attention without the wisecracks, which are not top drawer. The moral descent of Richard Carlson's murderous pianist makes this one of the darker MST3K offerings, and the "puppies and rainbows" song in the final host segment is a perfect example of why less sentimental viewers sometimes find the Joel-era shows hard to take.

Note that the extreme close-up of the engagement ring at the movie's end makes no sense, because an earlier scene that sets us up for this payoff was edited out of the MST3K version.

As MST3k is sort of show within a show within a movie format, it is better to review the sections before giving this episode a grade.

The Movie: This is one of those rare movies in which I liked the movie MORE than the MST3k part. It is the story of a man haunted by the spirit of his old flame and how far he will go to move on to a better life. Yes the special effects were cheesy but the movie is actually not too bad for an old thriller. If this was part of TCM Halloween movie fest, I would easily watch this and enjoy it.

Host Segments: OK - nothing great.

Riffs: There were a lot of riffs but... One of my biggest complaints about Joel was his riffs sometimes referenced very obscure 60s - 70s culture. This movie might be the best example as I really did not get any of his riffs during the first 10 minutes. If you get Joel's references, then I guess you will like this. If you dont get why the bots laughed at "Peg - it will come back to you" then - well just watch and enjoy the movie.

Overall: Good eery movie with obscure references and an annoying girl that keeps popping up in the movie for no apparent reason. Be happy watching a good movie with maybe the ocassional laugh.

***NOTE: I originally posted this review on Netflix.

Great riffs by Joel and the bots on this BAD movie about a jazz musician who kills his girlfriend, who then makes a point of haunting him prior to his wedding to a rich woman. Along the way he also murders a "hep cat." Overall one of the better MST3Ks!

WOW. I'm used to the bad movies and everything, but this one was extremely dark! Even Joel and the Bots had to sing a happy song at the end.

Great episode to cover up that the movie was really twisted lol.
