An impressive take on a cold case
9 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

First and foremost, if you have the opportunity to see this film, do so! I had the pleasure of seeing a screening of the film in Sacramento, CA and I think I've told everyone I have seen about it.

I'm not a fan of most horror, mainly because it's all pretty much been done before. I like blood, just not senseless blood and guts. I like the supernatural, if it's done right. With that being said, I really enjoyed this film. It brought both of these elements together in a perfect blend, blood and the supernatural. If you are going in expecting the same old crime drama/horror movie, think again. It was fresh, dark and had some bloody scenes, but nothing too gory. However, this film is probably not for the squeamish. It is great to see such a change from the remakes that are out there now.

I also dislike when I go into a suspenseful movie that is full of "twists", but you know how it's going to end in the first five minutes. That is not the case with The Black Dahlia Haunting, it kept me guessing all the way to the end. Devanny Pinn had a challenging roll, but she was able to make you feel for her character. As another reviewer wrote, "Britt Griffith made my skin crawl", and that he did. The cast and director, Brandon Slagle gave depth and life to the characters. I look forward to their next project!
