Sweet, Sweet Lonely Girl
Directed by A.D. Calvo
When Adele (Erin Wilhelmi) is sent to look after her aunt Dora, she hopes to bond with the kind lady who cared for her as a child. But Dora won’t leave her room and barely speaks. So when Adele meets the seductive Beth, her lonely life improves for the first time. After Beth pushes her to shirk her duties however, Adele faces a dangerous reckoning. Who is Beth and what does she want from Adele? From performances to visual style, A.D. Calvo’s queer supernatural chiller evokes the eerie atmosphere of 70s and 80s horror in much the same way Ti West did with THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL.
A young woman caring for her sick aunt is pushed into bad behavior by a seductive new friend.
Cast: Quinn Shephard, Susan Kellermann, Erin Wilhelmi

Seriously jenkinsbloodyjenkins? I guess I'll watch it anyway even though I already know how it ends 😑
Good plot, but what the hell happened? Evidently Adele is essentially haunted by her aging aunt at the end, and unintentionally killed her, but I don't really understand the ending between Beth and Adele.
