Mood

This is a movie that has to be watched in the right kind of mood I guess. It's really well made and it has a really good haunting story to tell. But if you're either not into that or want it to be scarier or even more like other recent horror movies, you might find yourself really disappointed by it.

I had no idea what the actual story would be, so I was guessing at times, where this was going (especially at the beginning). Maybe if you know too much, it will take away some of the fun you can have while watching this. It does have some intriguing twists and it is genuinely scary, because the cinematography but also the sound design are fantastic. The whole concept works and it has a great Stephen McHattie in it, who can elevate any movie. The twists are great and the movie flows by in a nice pace! Can be watched more than once for those exact points.

all substance, no style

i have all of zero filmmaking experience, but i expect mystery suspense-thrillers would be among the most difficult genres to direct due to the problem of diminishing marginal entertainability — that is to say, once the questions posed to the viewer by the story have been answered, the mystery upon further viewings is rendered substantially less intriguing. you won't be gripping your seat in anxious anticipation the second time around, because you already -know- what's going to happen

a good mystery makes up for this in aspects of atmosphere, style and character development. that's what makes cult classics like Candyman or Dark City or classic giallos by Dario Argento and Mario Bava so successful, and what Haunter is sorely lacking in

worth watching at at least once for the unique story idea, it's well-acted and scripted with decent camera work and an adequate, minimalist score; bright lights and fog machines comprise the bulk of what the film has to offer in terms of atmosphere, though. director Vincenzo Natali takes few chances with this one, the end result being an entertaining but sterile, made-for-TV-feeling film that few viewers will likely want to watch again

What did I just watch

I just finished watching Haunter based on the number of good reviews on here (I actually didn't remember seeing any bad reviews) and now I'm really questioning if we all watched the same movie. There was zero character explanation, zero character development which left the story dry. While watching I was left so confused, left with so many unanswered questions. Things would constantly happen without any explanation why. There was no explanation or reasoning for anything that happened in the film. I never write reviews, but this film was the worst I have ever seen. It's not thriller, it's not horror, it's definitely a lot a mystery (not in a good way), it's just straight up BORING.
