Habit is an abject failure on all counts, a blatantly calculated attempt at Tarantino-esque hipness while neglecting to provide a single reason we should give a damn about any of these characters and the situation they’ve gotten themselves into. That situation has slutty slacker Mads (Bella Thorne) and her two dim-witted besties getting on the wrong side of psychotic, perpetually-screaming drug dealer Queenie (Josie Ho) by losing $20,000 of her money. They decide to disguise themselves as nuns so they can hide-out in the home of a kindly blind woman.
This was yet another film that was sitting on the shelf for a while, the release date kept changing and then it got pretty much dumped. Not really sure we need to go back to the Amityville franchise cause really it’s had sequels, a prequel, a remake and now I guess it’s another sequel. Someone had the bright idea to do a meta sequel where not only the true life backstory but also the movies are known. Just let that sink in.
It’s an attractive cast for sure, everyone is young and good looking and the film is nice and sunny and goth girls live in nice big beautiful homes. The set up is fine and the cast does what it can, I will give some credit to Bella Thorne she tries here and she doesn’t go way over the top. The film moves at a quick pace no lag in story it goes right to the plot pretty quick.
