Tormented has lots of things I love - it's set in the 1950s in an asylum in England where weird experiments are going on and turning inmates into monsters. Literally. There is electroshock therapy, trans-orbital lobotomies, and ice-water baths. And a TON of gore. Really an enjoyable book.
This book builds upon the mythology found in his previous works, Horror In The Woods and The Demonic, and gives us a wider, more terrifying view of the darker universe that touches ours, and the terrible fates that await there.
The end is incredibly satisfying, and readers who love the intense finales of his previous books will not be disappointed. The last three chapters give us a beautifully crafted three-fold punch of darkness that will leave you wide-eyed. The imagery Lee has mastered so well is both graphic and cinematic.
If you like your horror as dark as it gets, and setting foot in a world that has true despair to the core, this is absolutely the book for you. Truly one of the best horror stories I have read. I would love to see this given a faithful treatment on screen, but it would take a brave film-maker indeed.
Absolutely a triumph, Lee. Well done, sir!
