To be honest, I rented "Habitat" at the discretion of the user comments and enjoyed it. Okay, the dialogue is not top-notch, but this film is entertaining. Alice Krige's performance is spellbinding, the "eco-house" is haunting, and it does have a subtle ecological theme. Also, I liked the film's appearance, thanks to Sony digital technology. More films should be made in high definition. I may be the only one who liked "Habitat." Some of its weaknesses include its lack of charcter development, especially Tchecky Karyo and Laura Harris. 6/10
