Editorial Reviews

Abigail Breslin (Ender s Game, Zombieland) stars in HAUNTER, a unique take on the traditional haunted house story from director Vincenzo Natali (Splice, Cube). In 1986, teenager Lisa (Breslin) and her family died in their home under sinister circumstances. Unable to move on, their spirits continued to roam the house during the intervening years. Now, over a period of six days , Lisa must reach out from beyond the grave to help her living counterpart Olivia avoid the same fate that Lisa and her family suffered long ago. Uniquely unsettling and shocking, HAUNTER is a one-of-a-kind reverse ghost story that chills long after the final frame.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new trend in scary movies? The quality is rising. October 27, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I have not seen a good movie in this genre in many, many years. Now, I have seen two within a few days. This movie and "The Conjuring." I hope there is a new trend in the genre. These type movies are generally lacking in the areas that matter the most, acting and writing, even if the underlying premise is pretty good.

"The Conjuring" relies upon a premise that has been done to death. A family moves into a home possessed by an evil spirit and they must rid the home of the entity. "Haunter" takes a new twist on this type story and does a fairly decent job. Although the movie has an overall surreal effect that leaves the viewer in a somewhat confused daze, it continues to remain interesting. After this surreal effects dissipates, the movie becomes more of a thriller.

The acting, especially by the lead actress Abigail Breslin, is well done. Again, a rarity in these type movies.

Trying to write a movie like this, bringing multiple stories/phases/realities/whatever is not easy. This movie does ok in that department. At times I think the writing slagged and suffered a bit but it did not drag out. Overall, everything came together well.

No real special effects for this movie. This movie relies upon storytelling and acting. Audio and filming are excellent.

Family friendly: No nudity, no foul language. Murder is observed but not gruesome. I think the most unfriendly family parts would be the anger scenes but they are not too bad. This movie is ok to watch with young kids in the room, in my opinion,

This is not a scary movie but a nice Halloween selection for adults wanting a more quality type movie. "The Conjuring" is also a quality selection.

Normally, I would rate this movie with 3 stars, but because it rises above its class in genre and the makers seemed to care about the movie in general, it gets 4 stars.

No dismembered , brutalized women !

How refreshing !
Real plot and story telling , not just gore and stupidity.
In the tradition of The Others , not Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

I rented this film on a whim at my local movie store. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. The movie is slow building and there is almost no gore in it at all. I would say stay away if you are into the slasher blood and guts movies for this film is not. Haunter is old school in the sense that it delivers a great story and creates an eerie feel and mood through out its entire length. The heroine of the film is a young girl and this quickly reminded me of some of the more familiar horror movies from the 80s. The movie is repetitive at the beginning and takes a little bit of time to get you into what exactly is going on. Abigail Breslin is really terrific in this movie! She displays so much potential to be a huge movie star especially as she gets older that one cannot comprehend how she isn't already. Haunter is the perfect movie to throw in on a rainy dismal day in October while you are curled up on a couch drinking hot chocolate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining ! March 28, 2014
By Pulpman
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a different kind of ghost story and it is a good effort. I got in to it but the pay off was not astounding. It is more like a good made for tv entry. The actors all do a compentent job. Breslin is in charge and the story pivots around her. She is a likable and believable character and that helps.
This is one of the new idea ghost stories and definitely worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars JUST LIKE PAC-MAN October 26, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
***** Contains plot spoiler that comes at 30 minutes into film...or not if you read the story line*****

Lisa (Abigail Breslin) wakes up as Bill Murray every morning ala "Ground Hog Day" in 1985. At 30 minutes into the film she also realizes she is Nicole Kidman from "The Others." (Sorry if you haven't seen that film.) It seems she is trapped inside the house with the ghost of a serial killer (Stephen McHattie) who is still active.

The film was done rather smartly. There is an error early on when mom (Samantha Weinstein) calls Robbie (Peter DaCunha) "Buster Brown" one day and then "Charlie Brown" the next day when the days are supposed to be identical. Bad editing that could have been changed with a simple voice over.

Lisa, being our main character and hero also provides us with the film target audience of young teen girls. The horror is mostly subtle. Although the guy is a serial killer, the film refrains from the gore aspect with "intense" scenes not being "Hell Raiser"intense.

I watched this film without reading the storyline and found trying to figure out what was going on enjoyable. This is a film you might want to watch with the family without letting them read the story line.

Would make a great horror rental.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

To try and describe this movie, it's not that easy for me without giving away spoilers, but put it this way, it's kind of something like "The Others" meets "Nightmare on Elm St" with a bit of a "Ground Hog Day" situation (situation, nothing like the movie).

Abigail Breslin plays a rather borderline emo teenager who discovers things are not quite around the house or with her life. She's finding herself waking up everyday to the same thing. The film centers around her and her parents, and her little brother who as she uncovers things, realizes a secret they have not figured out yet. Without trying to give too much away, she ends up finding a way to communicate with a girl from the past, and another from the future. However, don't think Back To The Future or anything, it's not about time traveling. That will make some sense if you have seen the film. In order for things to turn out for the best, she has to find out what is going on, and who is behind it?

There are parts of this movie that are pretty confusing, but by the time it's finished, everything comes together and makes sense... sort of. There are plenty of questions left to ask, but I won't go into them by mentioning them here, as they would be spoilers.

What isn't a spoiler is saying the way you expect the film to go in, doesn't quite go there, and perhaps thats why there is quite a lot of negative votes and reviews about this film. So much of it either doesn't make sense, or it's creating it's own film laws that people have seen so many times in other movies and feel this one's laws it's creating are going against previous ones that stood out well.

It's an odd tale... but it's in no way a horror film. It's more just a bit of a thriller, but more along the lines of a spooky ...
