Haunter Reviews

Dee Rudebeck

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

Has an elegance roughly on par with a Goosebumps novel, refusing to follow its own contradictory rules and barely sustaining a pretense of internal logic.

Haunter is a step down for director Vincenzo Natali, but yet another step up for Abigail Breslin, who continues to prove herself as a leading lady.

Vincenzo Natali emphasizes technically impressive shots in the service of predictable, boring expository beats, at the expense of elaborating on his main character's growing feelings of isolation and torment.

The occasionally intriguing, but ultimately middling Haunter is caught in some kind of gauzy haunted-house purgatory between a girl-powered YA story and a ghostly serial-killer mystery.

Regrettably, while Haunter is initially intriguing...it soon proves incapable of unraveling its conceit, except through excessively convoluted means.

"Haunter" has a solid setup, but the further Natali and King coax you into their labyrinth, the harder it becomes to appreciate what initially made their film so promising.

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

...Natali's weakest film since 2003's Nothing...

We're all for "deliberate pacing," but this is better described as "patience testing." None of the spark or verve that is present in Natali's other films is present here. It's as dusty as a Victorian ghost story without any of the actual scares.

Dustin Putman

Never completely loses the viewer's interest, but the edgy, enigmatic would-be momentum goes slack in the second half as the slim plot extends to 97 minutes when 80 would have made for a tauter experience.

anchored by a game performance by young Breslin, who deserves much, much better than this.

A dull, confusing movie for which nobody bothered to provide a script.

Matt Prigge

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.

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

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.

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

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

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