Synopsis from Redemption/Kino:
Returning to his country estate with his new bride, English nobleman Sir Richard Fordyce finds himself under suspicion from angry locals for the rape and brutal murder of a young girl. Despite Sir Richard's professed innocence, a growing hysteria unfolds, as strange and even supernatural events begin to occur around him.
With no one to turn to and his new wife threatening to shoot him, Sir Richard begins to question his own guilt... and sanity!
This Redemption disc comes out on DVD this time around, but looks very good. It's an HD Master from 35mm archival elements. The cover is exciting and warmly gothic. The disc itself contains one extra, but it's a good one, an interview with Robert Hartford-Davis from 1968 (the year Corruption was released if you're keeping track). AR: 1.66:1.
The Black Torment isn't as gratuitous as Hammer or as "to the point" as Amicus. It is distinctly British and might be in better company surround by Dead of Night though on the lighter side of terrifying, perhaps spook-worthy is a better term. Good for dark and stormy evenings. Perhaps a good fit with The Univited (one of my favorite spooky stories). It's a completely different movie from Corruption's gonzo mess-fest, but both features having something distinct to offer. If you prefer the haunts and the spookies, go for The Black Torment.
The Black Torment will be released April 29th. Order a copy now.
