About Tormented

FX-driven director Bert I. Gordon eschews his usual giant monsters for a more intimate ghost story set in a haunted lighthouse. Genre vet Richard Carlson returns to his noirish roots (Behind Locked Doors, The Amazing Mr.X) and distinguished d.p. Ernest Laszlo apparently shuttled between this second feature cheapie and the classy Inherit the Wind.

About Mick Garris

Mick Garris will be Executive Producing a film for Universal called Unbroken. It is based on Laura Hillenbrand’s book on Louis Zamperini with Angelina Jolie directing. Previously, Garris created the Masters of Horror hour-long cable series of fright films helmed by well-known genre directors, including himself.  Numerous screenplay assignments led to a career in directing, and he is perhaps best known for his long association with Stephen King, whose novels The Stand and The Shining have been translated by Garris into well-received mini-series. Mick authored the book, “Development Hell”, which can be ordered from Amazon.com at this link!  Mick’s latest books “Snow Shadows” and “Tyler’s Third Act” are now out from Cemetery Dance. A new novella, “Ugly”, and new Hollywood desert noir novel, “SALOME”, will be coming out this year.
