“Dexter” alumna Julie Benz joins scream queen Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) in the supernatural thriller Havenhurst. Set for limited theatrical release Feb. 10, the supernatural thriller stars Benz as an alcoholic MILF fighting the evil forces behind the disappearance of a close rehab buddy.
Benz plays Jackie, a hot mess of an alky released from rehab with a new job and furnished apartment at the Havenhurst complex. Things go bad quick when she attempts to figure out the disappearance of the previous apartment tenant and hot rehab buddy Danielle, played by Harris.
It’s exciting to see Benz back in horror. Her previous creds have included Saw 5, 8MM 2, Satan’s School for Girls, and the TV series “Angel,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and “Roswell.” She is best known, of course, for her tragic role as Dexter Morgan’s hot, nagging wife Rita on Showtime’s “Dexter.” The character was named one of Clatto’s 5 Horror Victims That Deserved to Die.
