Betsy – USA, 2017

‘A new shape of an old tail’

Betsy is a 2017 werewolf-themed supernatural horror film written and directed by Shawn Burkett (Don’t F*ck in the Woods and sequel; Watch This; Theatre of the Deranged II segment ‘Panty Raid’). It stars Marylee Osborne, Kelci C. Magel, Erin R. Ryan and Josh Miller.

After surviving a vicious assault in the city, Betsy moves to the country to stay with her friend Kayte in hopes of starting over. She meets and falls for Sam (Josh Miller) the local game warden. Everything seems to be going smoothly, however something begins clawing its way into the moonlight…

Reviews:

“The film features a wonderful cast including Kelci C. Magel and Josh Miller, whose characters of Betsy and Sam ground the film with their love story and give it emotional weight, making you care about what happens. The final act felt a bit rushed but overall Betsy is a formidable beast that I would wholeheartedly recommend.” Pop Horror

“The final effect reminded me of an old grindhouse favorite Werewolf Woman, and yes, that is a good thing. However it is disappointing when characters talk about how torn apart a victim was and then we see a corpse with not so much damage. There are a couple of good gore scenes, but the disconnect between the descriptions and what we see hurts overall.” Jim Morazzini, Beneath the Underground

“The transformation of Betsy offers us a new age werewolf tale with more of a humanoid look that is plenty brutal without sacrificing the development of a great character. The movie has a great, professional look as well.” Possessed Radio
