Coming to Bluray for SyFy fans is “Haven Season Five, Volume One” from executive producer Gabrielle Stanton and EntertainmentOne.

“Haven” is based on a novella The Colorado Kid by the master of the macabre Stephen King. SyFy took the story and ran with it creating a series about Audrey Parker, an FBI agent turned cop in “Haven”. Finding the cozy little town to be full of the supernatural, she enlists Nathan Wuornos and Duke Crocker to help save the town and people she comes to feel for.

The first half of Season Five has everyone dealing with Audrey (Emily Rose) believing she was taken by Mara (Emily Rose). Nathan (Lucas Bryant) and Duke (Eric Balfour) are not taking it at all well but something tells Nathan that Mara might be playing them.

When it all comes out in the open, the Guard is now looking for Mara as Dwight and Duke are now having to protect “Haven”. A battle isn’t far behind when a decision must be made what to do with Mara, but what if Audrey is still alive?

If that isn’t enough for the people of “Haven”, there is trouble in North Carolina that needs to be handled as Dave looks further into his past. In the meantime, Mara knows she has the upper hand but Nathan and Duke are ready to play their own cards!

Now it’s Nathan’s turn to ghost and it’s Duke’s turn to call in Seth Byrne (Kris Lemche) for help. Dave gets a strange infection in his leg and the CDC’s Dr. Cross (Laura Mennell) arrives in time as the residents of “Haven” fall sick.

Just when dealing with Mara was at an end, Duke does the unthinkable and not to help anyone but himself. Everything is thrown into chaos, especially when Vince begins to suspect that Doc Cross might not be all she claims to be.

What is happening in “Haven” can be the end of them all!

“Haven” is produced by Entertainment One and Big Motion Pictures and airs on SyFy in the US as Entertainment One takes on the one-hour series. For more of what EOne has to offer please visit

TUBS OF POPCORN: I give “Haven”, Season Five, Volume One four tubs of popcorn out of five. I truly fell hard for this series, as did other of my family members, because the characters are so well done and the storylines continue to go further and deeper into “Haven’s” history.

Of course I’m always thrilled with the supernatural is involved never knowing when the creepy reoccurring characters will show themselves again. Yes, the character of Mara is a fantastic opportunity for actress Emily Rose but was not surprised having seen her performance in the series Graceland. Having met Emily at San Diego Comic Con International I can tell you she is an amazing young lady.

I have always been a great fan of Eric Balfour catching my attention in the television series 24 and then in the alien film SKYLINE. Luke Bryant came to my attention watching the series Sex, Love, Secrets and was thrilled the first time I saw his character in “Haven.”

The Bluray includes the episodes See No Evil 1 & 2, Spotlight, Much Ado About Mara, The Old Switcheroo Part 1 & 2, Nowhere Man, Exposure, Morbidity, Mortality, Reflections, Chemistry and Chosen. The four-disc Bluray also includes an amazing bonus features section with 13 “Inside Haven” Featurettes, Haven: Origins: Witches Are Born, Haven: Origins: Native Breaks Free and Audio Commentary.

The second half of Season Five is coming soon to SyFy and I can not wait to see how the stories come together. Grabbing “Haven”, Season Five, Volume One now is perfect timing to refresh before the suspense begins again.

In the end — every town has a little darkness in it but “Haven” just became pitch black!
