"Tormented" released 1960
Tormented, released September 22, 1960, is another Bert I. Gordon "classic". Although billed as horror, it's wonderfully campy and hilariously dissected by Joel and the bots on Mystery Science Theatre 3000.
An aspiring musician lets his ex-girlfriend fall to her death from a lighthouse so she won't interfere with his upcoming nuptials. Soon, her ghost starts wreaking havoc on his life.
One of the biggest mysteries is why a young woman is marrying a man 22 years older than she is. Actually, the actor playing Tom Stewart is 4 years older than the actor playing his future father-in-law. Oh, well.
Anyway, Lugine Sanders, who plays the bride-to-be, is a native Oklahoman!
