Recovering alcoholic Jackie moves into the ominous Havenhurst building in an attempt to figure what happened to her friend Danielle who has suddenly gone missing.

Recovery just might kill ya in “Havenhurst,” an Ok horror outing with Julie Benz (“Dexter”) as a newly sober woman investigating a friend’s disappearance in the titular rambling Manhattan apartment complex. Ghosts of movies from “The Seventh Victim” to “Rosemary’s Baby” to Tobe Hooper’s “Toolbox Murders” remake haunt the musty halls of a competently crafted meller that never quite finds a distinctive narrative slant or atmosphere of its own.

Already released in several territories, it opens in eight U.S. cities Feb. 10, simultaneous with its launch on VOD.
