- Vi's ghost

For the MST3K episode, see MST3K 414 - Tormented.

Tormented is a 1960 psychodrama film directed by Bert I. Gordon. It was co-written by Gordon and George Worthing Yates.


On an island community off the coast of New England, jazz pianist Tom Stewart is preparing to wed the wealthy, wholesome Meg Hubbard. His plans are jeopardized by his possessive former girlfriend, singer Vi Mason who declares "no one will ever have you but me!" and threatens to blackmail him with his old love letters. During a confrontation at the top of the island's abandoned lighthouse, the railing breaks and Vi plunges to her death. Tom has a chance to save her but doesn't.

Vi's vengeful spirit begins haunting Tom and mysterious inexplicable phenomena start to happen. When a slang-talking charter boat captain guesses Tom's secret and demands hush money, Tom kills him.

As the wedding day approaches, Tom becomes more unhinged and desperate. When Vi's ghost disrupts the wedding ceremony, Tom is forced to confront the truth of what he's done and face justice.
