review by
Mike Haberfelner

Unable to find a job where she lives and unwilling to stay with her mother (Lindsae Klein) any longer than she has to, Amanda (Abby Wathen) accepts a job at a bed and breakfast in a small and peaceful town about 80 miles away, and she gets along with the owner Mildred (Marlyn Mason) pretty much right away. The job's pretty easy, too, as there are hardly any guests, Mildred's somewhat weird son Billy (Michael Meyer) seems to like her, too, and Brad (Max Gutfreund), the somewhat charming chef of the local diner, seems to have taken a fancy of her, and she's not at all opposed to it ... when she suddenly breaks down, and when she comes to again, the doctor (Liam O'Sruitheain) tells her she's pregnant - which she knows cannot be true as she hasn't been with a man for quite some time. But the next time she wakes up, she finds herself tied to her bed, her lips sewn shut, and Mildred tells her she has artificially inseminated her with Billy's sperm after she had drugged her on her first evening at the place. Now that's already more than a little troubling, but when Brad arrives on the scene as Amanda's knight in shining armour and Mildred just guns him down in cold blood, things get desparate for her. And now Mildred wants to legally marry her to Billy, too ...

 

Besetment is a clever little film that, even though one gets the premise pretty quickly, makes the most out of its basic situation and manages to surprise one with some unexpected twists and turns, plus the movie's pretty brilliant in creating suspense as well, and all the visceral parts are in all the right places to really shock the audience when needed. And add to that a strong cast, and you've got a very cool thriller.
