I’m going to cut right to the chase, I was not a fan of Hawthorne by Sarah Ballance. Right from the first scene something did not sit right with me. Everything seemed slightly off, out of focus and didn’t seem to quite fit together. The way the scenes jumped around the Hawthorne property made my head spin. I started to question what was going on and what was happening. There may have been too much going on; too many backstories that needed to come together to make the ending really work and create the desired suspense. In the end, Hawthorne by Sarah Ballance received a thumbs down.
Recommendation: Hopefully this doesn’t give too much away, Supernatural has an excellent episode that plays on the similar themes as Hawthorne. Watch Episode 16 in Season 2 titled “Roadkill.”
