The Black Dahlia Haunting (2012)

Holly returns to Los Angeles to speak with her brother after he commits a shocking double homicide against their parents, but something sinister is at foot when Holly discovers that the vengeful spirit of Elizabeth Short may have possessed young Taylor, and is after her next! Never mind the absurd premise. The disastrous pacing in the opening act is the first major blow to this psychological ghost story, but certainly not the last. THE BLACK DAHLIA HAUNTING is a talentless production from start to finish that buries itself beneath its disjointed story arcs, uninspired cinematography, and poor performances. The audience is expected to accept the supernatural aspects of the film with absolutely no indication as to why they are occurring thanks to the sloppy screenwriting. Save yourself the frustration and skip THE BLACK DAHLIA HAUNTING.

Rating: 3/10.

  1. I saw it at Scare-a-Con in September and wholly disagree.

  2. The board is yours, please elaborate if you will. I am always open for discussion! I saw it at Horrible Imaginings and almost walked out with several other viewers.
