"The pain was so intense, so all-consuming, that he no longer knew where he was ... white-hot knives were piercing every inch of his skin, his head was surely going to burst with pain; he was screaming more loudly than he'd ever screamed in his life ... "
—Description[src]

The Cruciatus Curse[1] (Crucio[1]) is a curse that can be used to cause immense pain, to the point of torture, to whomever the caster's wand is pointing at[3]. The Cruciatus, Imperius and Killing Curses are categorised in a group known as the "Unforgivable Curses", because the use of any of the three would result in a lifetime sentence in Azkaban Prison.
