Critic Reviews for Haunt

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (11)

  • Making a virtue of unoriginality, this clammy little ghost story, confidently directed by Mac Carter, conjures a whole heap of atmosphere from little more than clever camera angles and bedsheet apparitions.

  • By the time the final act unleashes its revelations and peril, "Haunt" has felt more like an exercise in formal spookiness than a full-blooded story of lingering malevolence.

    March 6, 2014 | Full Review…
  • There's lots of mixed film stock and screeches on the soundtrack (as in the credits for "Seven"), but this gets annoying, as do the predictable twists.

    March 6, 2014 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • There is virtually nothing in Mac Carter's horror flick that deviates from the standard haunted house plot (or, in this case, plod).

  • I've had bigger scares from the windows at FAO Schwarz.

  • The frustration here comes from the filmmakers' inability to present characters with dimension, so that we might come to identify with them and their fears.

Audience Reviews for Haunt

    Watchable coming-of-age horror with a wealth of dropped plot points.

    This film has good atmosphere and a decent performance from Jacki Weaver and that's about it. Everything else is stuff you've already seen elsewhere and, most definitely, done better than this film ever could claim. It's certainly more than watchable, but I found the lead actor utterly wooden and his chemistry with his leading lady was practically nonexistent. You have to wonder what the purpose was of having these two be the leads instead of making the whole haunting something that affects the entire family. Maybe they wanted to get some residuals of the Twilight audience, that's pretty much the only reason I can think of for focusing on these two teens, who are fairly unlikable, mostly Sam though. The way the character is written makes her unsympathetic when, I imagine, it was supposed to be the exact opposite. So that failed. There's some good, atmospheric moments but the scares aren't really effective. Jump scares haven't ever been the most effective form of horror. It's easy to pull off and it's a cheap way to scare someone. It doesn't take any talent. So you have a film that has some good atmosphere but wastes it on cheap scares and unlikable characters. Not a very good movie, but I can think of worse ways to spend an evening.
