Slagle kept me guessing, making this a thrilling tale that kept me glued to my seat.

It is evident the writer did his research thoroughly and stuck to the facts of the main story very closely(location of events, grotesque torture details,background of characters) and then added a few unexpected twists and turns that will keep you on edge.

Devanny Pinn captivates the audience with her stunning portrayal as the beautiful sister to an institutionalized boy, played by Noah Dahl.

The Cave Scene at the Beginning Needs Viewer Attention Or You'll Miss That Character Developing and His Part in the Plot but That was Made up for by the Quite Unexpected Change In The Female Character Towards the End .

Jessica Cameron as the lovely Marilyn Monroe was impressive and delightfully entertaining, as was Noah Dahl in his role as a young man who is institutionalized for the murder of his parents.

Suspenseful and disturbing in all the right places .

The Female Lead, Devanny Pinn, also stunning, goes through changes in the film that, while subtle, have actions that speak louder than words, and ultimately employs some empathy for her Character.

it makes the story intriguing!

Also with the man named Malcolm (Brandon Slagle) who found the knife that I guess killed Elizabeth Short, was a little confusing to me.

Overall, The Black Dahlia haunting is an enjoyable movie.

It was so intriguing that I attended both screenings.

Their scenes together were the most intense of the movie.

The chemistry between them was riveting.

Slagle left me feeling his characters anguish and despair, while at the same time intriguing me with his crazy and erratic behavior, never sure what his next move might be.

This profoundly gripping film written and directed by Brandon Slagle was nothing short of brilliant.

Worst movie i have ever seen.
