You know, I didn’t much enjoy Death Sentence when it first came out, and to see that Twisted Pictures is going to basically try and recast it and try it again in the form of a movie called The Tortured doesn’t bode well, as far as I’m concerned. The upshot, though, is they’ll be adding terror hottie Erika Christensen to the cast, and also including genre favorite Bill Moseley along for the ride.
Though it’s being directed by Rob Lieberman formerly of Fire in the Sky, there’s still a lot of predictability riding herd on this one based on analysis of the plot. Basically, a young professional couple has their life turned upside down when their son is abducted by a murderer, and naturally, the justice system completely falls asleep at the wheel and forces the young professionals to go rogue to get their own brand of justice.
See what I mean? Very much shades of Death Sentence, except this time the kid in question may not necessarily be dead. This one may not be one to watch, with or without the sweet terror hottie addition.
