Critic Reviews for Habit
This has been a good decade for movies about New York vampires.
Another hip vampire drama set in New York's East Village, small budget indie Habit manages to impress with plausible scripting, first-rate performances and an unsettling mood of mounting dread.
Too much time passes before Habit pulls its plot together, and too much of the acting merits the description amateurish.
Larry Fessenden's impressive Habit takes a great deal of pleasure in ambiguously playing around with the vampire tradition.
Sam's suspicion that Anna is a vampire because she's anorectic, reticent, and only comes out at night prompts his best buddy to observe that Sam resembles a character in a bad movie -- as if the self-reference will deepen the obvious allusions.
Audience Reviews for Habit
Fassenden's attempt to do a vampire film is hampered by its small budget which is clearly evident throughout the production. A good low budget director can compensate and make an audience forget that short cuts are being taken. It doesn't happen here.
Sam, a functional alcoholic who has just lost his father and his girlfriend, meets a mysterious, beautiful woman at a Halloween party, and finds himself becoming progressively sicker as he gets more and more involved with her. Interesting indie horror/drama that can be occasionally pretentious; it's at it's best when showing us the streets of Lower Manhattan as seen through the eyes of an incerasingly depserate, one step away from the gutter drunkard.
