This is London

It's hard to dislike a film that has so much fun with the idea that for isolated teens, every day is like Sunday.

Though [Natali's] haunted-house tale ultimately lacks the strong storytelling its high concept calls for, it still compels with its ambition, occasional eloquence, and heart-in-the-right- place vibe.

A tightly wound slow-burn ghost story that blends the best elements of the genre... could have certainly held its own in theaters with a little positive word of mouth.

Haunter isn't an extraordinary ghost tale, but it's got a nice lyrical blend of fear, gloom, and unsettling evil moments...

"Haunter" offers a freaky, visceral experience - without a hint of gore.

Cinema Crazed

A very entertaining amalgam of "The Others" and "Amityville Horror"...

Cult director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) has come up with an unusual, refreshing take on a typical ghost story.

Lifted by the sepulchral Stephen McHattie as Lisa's nemesis, the film's frazzled thought experiment becomes an adequate yarn.

Abigail Breslin is effective enough to generate a rooting interest in the plucky protagonist of the piece, and to sustain interest when narrative logic turns fuzzy.

Clever haunted-house pic will please more than hardcore fright fans.

Deft direction, strong performances, and an absorbing story elevate Haunter to the status of one of the better 'family' horror films of recent years.

It's a puzzling, beautifully constructed reverse ghost story that shows Natali is unafraid to push the envelope regardless of the genre.

Grolsch Film Works

the clever ideas quickly give way to a more straightforward - and therefore less satisfying - battle between good and evil (resolved explicitly in terms of heaven and hell).

Clever, unexpected, and elevated by an engaging leading lady performance from Abigail Breslin. It's also convoluted as hell.

Haunter continues the close-but-no-cigar tradition of Natali's post-Cube endeavors.

A lovely homage to haunted house cinema -- and a very crafty ghost story in its own right.

The biggest pleasures here come from how thought-through and rigorous this weird little universe is; how Natali and King commit fully to their story and follow it through to a satisfying conclusion.

A good performance from Breslin keeps tension alive, but hope for a really scary and inventive fright dies screaming in the basement.

Inspiration seems to come from Groundhog Day, Beetlejuice and even The Shining.

Without distraction, attention can drift to the poor, cheesy lo-fi effects, which look as shifty as they did in Natali's 'Cypher,' but without the relentlessly nutty plot twists that jerk us merrily around.
