One of the Incendo productions that I hadn’t seen, You Belong to Me is one of those kind of weird mysteries. It works hard to have supernatural elements while also being a realistic (meaning it’s not fantasy) film.
You Belong to Me (2008) Incendo Film Review
Building a good life is all Alex Wilson (Shannon Elizabeth) wants. She lived a bad one years ago before she separated herself and her son from her ex. Now, she’s moving on, working on her career in publishing and creating a new life with her lawyer boyfriend Chris.
When someone breaks into her house and starts to stalk her, Alex is sure it’s her ex breaking the restraining order. Together with Chris and the police, Alex faces another threat to her life and will do anything to protect her son.‘YOU BELONG TO ME’ (2008): A SUPERNATURAL MYSTERY WITH A STALKER #MYSTERY #SHANNONELIZABETH #AMAZONPRIME Click To Tweet
The concept of this film is good. However, the addition of the supernatural element makes things a little bit weird. Even though pegging the culprit becomes easy, there’s still always that question of maybe-this-person-is-bad, or maybe-it’s-that-one. This makes it a bit too wishy-washy so that we cannot really like the characters. Or at least it doesn’t me.
Beyond this, if you like a mystery with a touch of spooky, you may like this one. This also applies if you enjoy the prior Incendo productions. The cast isn’t the best, but there’s a good enough story that builds to a good enough climax to keep the forward motion working. All of which are things that make this a decent 90-minute mystery.

Content: there’s two sex scenes (one about 10 minutes in). Both have some shots of nudity (back), caressing, movement and some suggestive foreplay. There’s tense moments and supernatural elements (spells, a ghost, etc.). Tense moments involve an accident (and threats; and there’s also a “showdown” of sorts with the bad guy. The film is PG-13.
