A bullied teenager comes back from the dead to take revenge on his classmates.

The script for Tormented interested me as it had a very American, "pop-corn" feeling to it but set in a very British setting. I liked to create a fresh and colourful version of a English school with a very dark undertone. Shot mainly in two different schools in Birmingham and other locations.

  "A slasher for the Twitter generation, Tormented catches the spirit of the times without being too try-hard. Quips and snogging take precedence over scares, but its commentary on new technology’s power to intimidate is chillingly apt." *Total Films*
