Pick My Brains
Like many vampire films, Habit revolves around a character becoming completely mesmerized by an otherworldly being. In a lot of ways, it reminded me of The Moth Diaries which I watched two years ago. And just as I loved that movie for its gothic atmosphere, Habit also manages to elevate an often repeated story by burying itself deep inside the world of young adults in a crowded city just a few years before the internet and cellphones rewrote social interactions for everyone. This movie doesn't promising any mind-bending plot twists, but I still recommend it for being very well made.
Sometimes They Come Back... Again
Director, writer, and star — Larry Fessenden — has directed 5 horror movies and the "N For Nexus" segment in ABCs Of Death 2. He's also acted in several horror movies including Southbound, You're Next, and I Sell The Dead.
Patricia Coleman, who played Rae, also appeared in the PC game The Beast Within: A Gabriel Knight Mystery. It was part of the fad of FMV (full motion video) games where a game would heavily feature video footage but usually have very simple controls. The Gabriel Knight series were point-and-click adventures like those made by LucasArts and later Telltale Games.
