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

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.

It was an intense experience and pulled no punches when it came to showing Elizabeth Short for who she really was, though you still feel bad for what happen to her in the end.

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.

I enjoyed it!

Their scenes together were the most intense of the movie.

Worst movie i have ever seen.

Brandon Slagle's direction and screen play are riveting.

Overall, The Black Dahlia haunting is an enjoyable movie.

Very 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.

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 .

It was too slow getting to the main part of the story.

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.

Brian Owen) on several occasions and all I can say is I will have to look at him in a whole new light.. For the most part I like this movie, it was kind of slow paced in a few places.
