"Torment" was composed by Bill Marx and written by Marilyn Lovell. Bill Marx was the adopted son of Harpo Marx; Lovell was a singer and actress.
The song appears in Scream Blacula Scream
, a low-budget film about an African prince who after being bitten by Count Dracula is doomed to wander the Earth alone preying on humans. Lovell is credited as Marilynn Lovell, although it is performed at the end of the film by an uncredited male singer. Lyrically, the song is right on the money:You let me see that I might even close my eyes in peace
Instead of torment
