As her husband starts to get more work, Claire finds herself mixed up in a fog of past and present with a mysterious figure haunting her memories.

'Bethany' is James Cullen Bressack's most recent film and is a return to his much-favoured horror genre. 'Bethany' is definitely his best film to date, although I really enjoyed 'Pernicious' too.
It's story of a woman returning to her childhood home, which stirs up memories of maternal abuse and fear. The full story of her past unfolds throughout and is not until the end that we find out the truth. The film has a very claustrophobic feel and we can really get a feel of the tension and pressure that the lead character feels.
The only drawback for me was that it is a bit dialogue-heavy in places and some of the genuinely good scares are kept for the final act.
However, it is definitely worth a watch.
