Habit: Directed by Simeon Halligan. With Jessica Barden, William Ash, Joanne Mitchell, Sally Carman. Set within the neon drenched rain swept underbelly of Manchester, where the addicted prey on the lost and the lonely.
“A British horror; A modern noir with themes of misery and subversion of conventional morality. This is an engaging film, mercifully ungratuitous given the graphic brutality and violence. The cinematography is effective for the seedy criminal underworld and repulsive characters it attempts to create. However, it is mainly a fantasy tale because not enough is given in character motivation. Some of the performances range from melodramatic to ungainly, and while local dialect is consistent with the filmu0026#39;s setting, it is also often inarticulate and an overuse of profanities produces redundancy.”
