Scorned, directed by Mark Jones, is another film in the “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” subgenre of /suspense, among the most famous of which is probably 1987’s Fatal Attraction starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. But that old flick was for Yuppies. Scorned is a much more up-to-date looking film made for an audience with a more developed sense of torture.
Obviously, Scorned is drawing inspiration from Fatal Attraction, but there’s also a huge homage to Stephen King’s classic Misery, which has nothing to do with infidelity or revenge, and a smaller visual reference to Scream.
Judging from this redband trailer, Scorned looks like a terror ride built for three and AnnaLynne McCord looks like she’s at the top of her game.
Scorned comes to Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on February 4, 2014.
Sadie (AnnaLynne McCord: Excision, 90210) and Kevin (Billy Zane: Titanic, Border Run, Bloodrayne) have decided to spend a romantic weekend together at his lake house. But when an unexpected – and unfortunate – text from her best friend Jennifer (Viva Bianca: Spartacus: War of the Damned) to Kevin reveals a lurid love affair between the two, Sadie spirals into a hunger for revenge that is without mercy.
