Seen in the apartment building is a portrait and news clippings of notorious serial killer H. H. Holmes, who owned a hotel in Chicago which became known as his murder castle. The hotel was designed with false walls, secret passageways, and an incinerator in the basement to dispose of his victims' bodies. Holmes confessed to murdering 27 people but only 9 could be confirmed, and some estimate he may have tortured and killed as many as 200 hotel guests prior to being caught. See more »

Havenhurst: Nice jigsaw with a couple of pieces missing
Julie Benz & Danielle Harris in the same film? Yes please, I thought when the credits began but alas it wasn't meant to be. Harris may possibly have been there as a favour to someone as her total screen time is barely 60 seconds.
Havenhurst is a gigantic apartment building for people to put their lives back together. It's full of former alcoholics, drug addicts and various criminal types and that's where our heroine moves in seeking her missing best friend.
If you play nice it's a great place to live but should you return to your old ways you'll find yourself in a world of trouble.
Julie Benz is an incredible actress, a tour de force and is always fantastic to watch. It's rare to see her as the leading lady so it was nice to see her get her chance here. She does a brilliant job and the movies concept is actually quite intriguing especially near the end where a big twist occurs.
I walked away from this feeling that something was missing, maybe the delivery wasn't on point, maybe it was too short or maybe the finale didn't appease me. Regardless Havenhurst is a decent enough watch and could potentially see a sequel or even a franchise.
Feels incomplete somehow
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Julie Benz doesn't age, seriously it's getting ridiculous
Danielle Harris may well have been in the movie more than I realised, she's just so tiny maybe I missed her
