The Best of Intentions

By Emil Jonsson | Horror
A father suspects his mentally disabled daughter has been the victim of sexual abuse. So he exacts revenge.

Kjell is father to a mentally disabled daughter, who lives at an assisted care facility. He begins to suspect that her attendant Jocke is sexually abusing her.

Jocke immediately notices Kjell’s hostility and suspicion, which makes their interactions tense and disquieting. Things come to a head in a furious confrontation, leading to chilling consequences that will haunt the characters and viewers.

Director Emil Jonsson has created a chilling horror short, built not on blood, guts and gore but instead the darker impulses of humankind. The tension he generates from the conflict between two men is entirely psychological, crafted from precise camerawork and well-calibrated performances.

Famed Swedish actor Per Ragnar gives a masterful performance as the father, whose dignity and elegance masks a cold, almost condescending anger and menace, while Jonsson matches him beat for beat as the attendant.

Well-paced in its storytelling, the film is akin to classic old-fashioned thrillers by masters like Hitchcock, marrying classically inspired technique with the concerns and anxieties of modern life. By the time “The Best of Intentions” concludes, viewers won’t be able to shake their sense of disquiet — or easily calm their shaken nerves after the film’s nail-biting end.
