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
Pretty darn good! Slow but never uninteresting.
Eerie slow burn.
Not too shabby
Slow Burn, more like No Burn. Makes 76 minutes feel like twice that. The decent twist at the end really isn't worth what you have to sit through to get to it. Too bad, because the acting is more than passable. It feels like a good short film that was forced into feature length and you can feel its bloat
The film’s premise seems to revolve around the desire for material and worldly things; and what could happen if the seduction to have these things lulls you into an obsessive, ego-driven desire to acquire them at a supernatural expense. Revenge from beyond the grave is an old theme. The nod to “ Burnt Offerings” is really awesome. Quinn Shepherd is gorgeous and could talk me into anything! ❤️
