User Reviews

 
A thoughtful vision from an auteur with heart.
27 November 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

"Habit" is a unique creation from a total filmmaker. The writer/director/editor/star has taken the familiar genres of horror, vampirism, sexual obsession, and addiction, looked at them from the inside out, and blended them into a quixotic journey which leads the audience into a realistic horror of how deadly these afflictions can become. Fessenden shows all the marks of an auteur with heart, and miles to go before he sleeps.
