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

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

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

"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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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