While it may not necessarily give horror fans a case of the heebie jeebies any time soon, it's just nice to see a moderate supernatural thriller actually put forth some effort and not just give us another paint-by-numbers spookfest

Brutal and violent, it becomes obvious in hindsight how much this film needed less replication and a bit more bite.
August 18, 2014
Given a better script -- or at least, one that was a little more self-aware -- Haunt could have been a solid scare.

May 8, 2014
A respectably old-school chiller that feels sort of refreshing, even if it doesn't leave much of an impression.
March 7, 2014
a nice little slumber party thriller to watch with the lights off

March 6, 2014
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.
March 6, 2014
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
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 5, 2014
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.

March 4, 2014
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.
March 3, 2014
A humdrum, even irritating slog that, safe to say, won't be giving anyone a sleepless night.

February 28, 2014
Mac Carter repeatedly compromises his intuitive, and often elegantly framed, glances at his main characters' teenage blues by too busily going through amateur-night gesticulations of spooking his audience.

[Haunt] assumes [clichés] are all a horror audience craves, even if the events as a whole lack the slightest semblance of logic.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.0/5
February 12, 2014
A classical haunted-house thriller with perhaps little that's out of the ordinary for the genre, but occasionally inventive execution.
February 10, 2014
Just like waking up in bed with a ghostly grannie, Haunt is a horrifying jolt of energy that executes on all fronts - and has a blast doing so.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
