If you're going to cheat on your lover, don't get caught. And if you do get caught, you'd better hope your lover isn't secretly insane. Kevin learns the hard way when his girlfriend Sadie (AnnaLynne McCord of "90210") discovers that he's having a scorching affair with her best friend (Viva Bianca of "Spartacus"). Now Sadie has planned a romantic weekend getaway for just the three of them, complete with terror, torture and twisted psychosexual games. The trap is set. The party has begun. And tonight, hell hath no fury like a woman SCORNED.Written by

Sadie mentions Misery (1990), saying Kathy Bates was "very good in it". Billy Zane, who plays Kevin, worked with Bates in Titanic (1997). Additionally, Kevin's neighbor, Mrs. Wilkes, has the same surname as Bates' character in 'Misery'. See more »

Rich love-rat Kevin (Billy Zane) cheats on his girlfriend Sadie (AnnaLynne McCord) with her sexy BFF Jennifer (Viva Bianca). When Sadie rumbles the infidelity (after finding saucy text messages on Kevin's cellphone) she decides to teach the naughty pair a lesson they won't forget.
Halfway through Scorned and I was about to write the film off as a total failure, when I suddenly realised that the ridiculous script and overblown performances were intentional: I was actually watching a dark comedy! I guess the fact that I couldn't discern the film's intended nature for quite some time still makes it something of a failure, but after my epiphany, the rest of the movie proved far more bearable, with AnnaLynne McCord's performance being a master-class in OTT cinematic craziness.
With Sadie prancing around in her panties, sexy Jennifer showing us exactly how she managed to turn Kevin's head, some reasonably sadistic violence (including a nasty hobbling scene inspired by Misery), and the hilarious sight of an escaped convict, tattooed over his entire face, thumbing a lift in the rain, Scorned actually proved to be a reasonably fun way to waste some time. While not the finest title on Billy Zane's filmography, it's not the biggest embarrassment on it either (there are so many to choose from).
