SXSW Movie Review: Haunter

With films like Cube and more recently in 2009, Splice, it’s easy to label Director Vicenzo Natali as an innovative, original mind. Unfortunately, Hollywood doesn’t often make money on originality, so his next project, Haunter, was not written by him. This is where the movie fails the audience. Just reading the synopsis the synopsis had us thinking about other films: The ghost of a teenager who died years ago reaches out to the land of the living in order to save someone from suffering her same fate. Still, having Natali tied to the project had us excited. Watch our video review to find out what went wrong. Warning: There may be a spoiler or two mentioned.
