Synopsis


Haunter
A teenage ghost teams up with a living girl to stop a phantom killer, and break a vicious supernatural cycle in this psychological horror tale from director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice). Lisa Johnson (Abigail Breslin) was just one day shy of 16 when her entire family perished back in 1986. Ever since, the spirits of the young girl and her family have been trapped reliving the monotonous routine of their last day alive. Meanwhile, in the present day, young Olivia (Eleanor Zichy) moves into the Johnson's old house with her family, and bears witness to a disturbing transformation; her typically loving father is acting like a man possessed, prompting the startled teen to fear for her family's safety. Later, after failing to break through to her own family, Lisa manages to communicate with Olivia, and makes a shocking discovery: The house was once owned by a notorious serial killer who preyed on young girls (Stephen McHattie). Although dead, the madman has summoned the power to possess the living, and now dwells in the body of Olivia's father. Now, should the two girls fail to manage to stop the killer soon, the worst may be yet to come. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    More than one kind of ghost

    "Haunter" borrows a lot of ideas from other movies, but adds enough touches of its own (all the way down to the shirt worn by the heroine) to come across as a good time. As much a mystery as a ghost story, the movie is recommended to those who like a fairly creepy movie but one which won't scare you too badly. It has a bit of an old-fashioned feel to it, which I liked, and its strong young heroine should please those who like movies with "girl power." Not great, but I certainly enjoyed it.

    When I bought this, I'd never read any reviews - nothing but the text on the back. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised - we love to try to guess how the plot will progress and with a twist here and there, it was one step ahead of us for a the most part.

    I like thrillers that are along the line of "The Others" and "The Sixth Sense" and this movie reminded me a lot of these movies. I completely enjoyed this.
