World premiere viewing
16 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw this movie at the world premiere at the Scare-a-Cuse Horror Sci-Fi convention last night (9/15). The movie is not a glamorized version of the Black Dahlia story which makes it stand out from the normal covering of this horrific unsolved homicide from 1947. The movie is not for the squeamish.

Brandon Slagle's direction and screen play are riveting. He is able to use the psychological thriller in ways that evoke Alfred Hitchcock. There is definitely a film noir feel throughout the movie and his use of the black screen is effective not detracting at all from the plot progression.
