Synopsis

TORMENTED (RABITTO HORA 3D) centres on a young boy whose family seems to be falling apart around him. The situation gets worse when he manifests a growing and dangerous friendship and reliance on a stuffed toy rabbit that comes to life. Is he crazy; is his sister alive or dead; is their storybook illustrating father going insane or are they all delusional? Shimizu ventures once more into the terrifying recesses of the mind. The film marks his first collaboration with award-winning cinematographer Christopher Doyle, who previously worked with many other noted Asian directors.
