There are some movies that are hard to classified because they tread that thin line between horror and thriller. Typically these films are focused on some sort of revenge story and are usually hit and miss. The latest Scorned takes on the psycho lover revenge story and after seeing AnnaLynne McCord’s crazed turn in Excision she is perfect for leading the charge for this film, but does it have enough story and meat to make it stand out?

Scorned follows a young woman who finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her with her best friend. What he doesn’t know is that she is already insane and this betrayal sends her over the edge. Now she has planned a weekend getaway for the three of them that will include terror, torture and twisted psychosexual games. The story here is set up perfectly and sets out to deliver everything you could want with this idea, but along the way loses it’s footing. It jumps right into things and doesn’t waste any time which is great, but then it works so hard to make sure you understand that she is crazy that it feels more forced than anything. She clearly has the ability to pull it off so there is no reason for her to over sell it, but sadly at times she does. The film is still entertaining on a lot of levels thanks to the deranged situations and tortures, despite it never really pushing the envelope. When you make the choice to go the torture route in a film they really should push it to the edge for it to really be effective. That isn’t to say that they don’t work here because they do just fine, but could have been better.

This is one of those movies that you will either like the over the top performances or not. The film works fine despite its flaws and will no doubt entertain. McCord has found a niche for herself that given the right project she can deliver the perfect crazed character and will hopefully keep them coming.
