Welcome to the Family

Equal parts psychological and brutal.” -- CraveOnline

LOS ANGELES — June 1, 2014 — For Immediate Release — A family vacation goes horribly wrong in Torment, premiering on VOD (June 6) and DVD (July 15) from Vertical Entertainment.

Newlyweds Sarah (Katharine Isabelle, American Mary, Freddy vs. Jason, Insomnia) and Cory (Robin Dunne, TV’s Sanctuary) take Cory’s seven-year-old son, Liam (Peter DaCunha, Haunter, A Dark Truth, The Barrens), to a county home for some much-needed family bonding, hoping the boy – who resents his widowed father for remarrying – will warm up to his new stepmother.

Upon their arrival, it appears someone has been living in the house. Assured by the local sheriff that the intruders have moved on, they continue with their holiday plans … But the decision soon proves a terrible mistake when Liam goes missing.

Worry evolves into utter terror as the couple confronts a sadistic, cult-like family who have been hiding in the house all along. Now, Sarah and Cory must fight to save their entire family from these vicious kidnappers.

Also starring Stephen McHattie (Watchmen, 300), Torment is presented in widescreen with an aspect ratio of 16 x 9 (2.40:1) and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound.
