“Julie Benz u0026amp; Danielle Harris in the same film? Yes please, I thought when the credits began but alas it wasnu0026#39;t meant to be. Harris may possibly have been there as a favour to someone as her total screen time is barely 60 seconds.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHavenhurst is a gigantic apartment building for people to put their lives back together. Itu0026#39;s full of former alcoholics, drug addicts and various criminal types and thatu0026#39;s where our heroine moves in seeking her missing best friend.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you play nice itu0026#39;s a great place to live but should you return to your old ways youu0026#39;ll find yourself in a world of trouble.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJulie Benz is an incredible actress, a tour de force and is always fantastic to watch. Itu0026#39;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.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI walked away from this feeling that something was missing, maybe the delivery wasnu0026#39;t on point, maybe it was too short or maybe the finale didnu0026#39;t appease me. Regardless Havenhurst is a decent enough watch and could potentially see a sequel or even a franchise.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Good:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJulie Benzu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGreat twistu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eVery originalu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Bad:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAwful coveru003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFeels incomplete somehowu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThings I Learnt From This Movie:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJulie Benz doesnu0026#39;t age, seriously itu0026#39;s getting ridiculousu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDanielle Harris may well have been in the movie more than I realised, sheu0026#39;s just so tiny maybe I missed her”
