Comments: Amanda gets a job in the small town of Mitchel at a hotel. The town does appear as a creepy little place. The owner seems nice enough but once in a while shows signs that should be a warning.
All the males in town are horny. There is a weird feel to the town.
Abby Wathen as Amanda Millard and Marlyn Mason as Mildred Colvin do give wonderfully great performances.
Things do take a very different and disturbing turn. It is down right sick and disturbing.
Things get even more outrageous as Mildred and her son Billy have plans with Amanda. Mildred is so far gone you will not believe it. Her son Billy is just along for the ride. He knows the difference between right and wrong but he is easily controlled.
The ending does not really make a lot of sense. It will leave you wondering why end it this way.
There are some fine acting performances in this movie that make it worth watching.
