Trivia

Seen in the apartment building is a portrait and news clippings of notorious serial killer H. H. Holmes, who owned a hotel in Chicago which became known as his murder castle. The hotel was designed with false walls, secret passageways, and an incinerator in the basement to dispose of his victims' bodies. Holmes confessed to murdering 27 people but only 9 could be confirmed, and some estimate he may have tortured and killed as many as 200 hotel guests prior to being caught. See more »

Dull haven
21 May 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

'Havenhurst' drew me into seeing it, with a cool poster, an intriguing idea and as someone with a general appreciation for horror. That it was low-budget, which from frequent personal experience is rarely a good sign due to that there are so many poor ones out there, made me though apprehensive.

Found the film to be very weak, its worst elements being pretty awful, with a lot more wrong than right. 'Havenhurst' is not great, or good, has a fair share of problems (fairly big ones too) and doesn't do enough with its potential, which was hardly small. There are however a few decent, even good, qualities in 'Havenhurst'.

Lets start with the positives. The scenery is atmospheric, likewise with the very nice way it's shot. The music is suitably spooky and quirky and doesn't distract at all from the atmosphere, while not exactly enhancing it.

Julie Benz does her best, although her terrible material defeats her and would be beneath even the worst actresses.

However, the story does feel over-stretched and some of it feels vague, under-explained. The more 'Havenhurst' progressed, the duller, more predictable, more senseless and less scary it got, and too many characters are too sketchy and with nowhere near enough to make one want to endear to them. Their irritating and illogical decision making and behaviours insult the intelligence. Making the film feel bland and forgettable with not enough heart put into it.

Acting is not good aside from Benz.

Dialogue can be stilted and rambling while the pace is uneven, dragging in a lot of the second half and never is it exciting. Found the supposedly shocking moments not surprising or scary and the supposedly creepy atmosphere dreary, due to the excessive obviousness and the lack of tension and suspense, and the ending is badly bungled for reasons too numerous to list, just felt muddled and anti-climactic.

In conclusion, very weak but not unwatchable. 3/10 Bethany Cox
