Sweet Sweet Lonely Girl (2016)

A.D. Calvo directs Erin Wilhelmi, Quinn Shephard and Susan Kellermann in this modern gothic horror where a shy girl moves in and helps her reclusive aunt in their dilapidated townhouse.

An exercise in style rather than substance. This is almost creepy at times, almost sexy in moments but never really capitalises on a tried-and-tested set up for scares and seduction. A film has failed if the highest praise you can give it is for its eye for costume design. At least someone had a good afternoon trolley dashing through the vintage shops!
