Weak Screenplay and Poor Production
15 June 2017 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

The unemployed Amanda Millard (Abby Wathen) is desperate to find a job since she is forced to live with her alcoholic estranged mother. Out of the blue, she is invited to a job interview at the Oregon Hotel in Mitchell in the countryside of Oregon 80 miles far from home. When she arrives, she is welcomed by the nice Mildred Colvin (Marlyn Mason) that offers a maid position to Amanda and her son Billy Colvin (Michael Meyer) fix her car. Amanda returns home to say goodbye to her mother and to her friend Brittany (Sonya Davis) and bring her belongings to Mitchell. Soon Amanda befriends the cook Brad (Max Gutfreund) from a nearby eatery and spends her day off with him. When she returns to the hotel, she faints and learns that she is pregnant. But how, if she has not had any sexual encounter with any man?

"Besetment" is a horror thriller with a promising storyline but a weak screenplay and poor production with extreme low-budget. The flawed plot could have explored the situations better and developed the characters better. Brad, for example, is murdered but the viewer does not know anything about him and no resident seems to miss him. Mildred uses a gunshot in the middle of the night and nobody hears the shot. Amanda is abused in the hotel and sees her friend murdered in her room, but she keeps the baby and moves to live in the place in the end. The director and writer Brad Douglas is quick to make amends to the polemic situations using fade out, such as the incestuous relationship of Billy and Mildred, or she sewing Amanda's mouth. There is one very funny line (Amanda saying to Mildred "I'm either giving birth to the new messiah or that doctor's full of s hit!") and one attempt with the Sheriff that can not recall the correct codes. My vote is two.
