DVD Review – Haunter (2013)

14 July 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Haunter, 2013.

Directed by Vincenzo Natali.

Starring Abigail Breslin, Sarah Manninen, David Hewlett, Stephen McHattie, Peter DaCunha, Michelle Nolden, Eleanor Zichy and Peter Outerbridge.

Synopsis:

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.

In a genre slightly starved of creativity, Haunter deserves kudos for at the very least trying something new and original. With it’s Groundhog Day/Edge of Tomorrow-style narrative, director Vincenzo Natali (Splice) has certainly made a decent little thriller that for the first half at least does a respectable job despite it’s obvious budgetary constraints (the CGI fog is pretty bad), with some decent camerawork and a few genuine jumps. In that first thirty minutes, the film firmly puts you in guessing mode: why is Lisa in a time loop? Is she being punished? Is Lisa »

‘Haunter’ DVD Review

12 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Abigail BreslinStephen McHattie, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden, Peter DaCunha, Samantha Weinstein, Eleanor Zichy, David Hewlett, Sarah Manninen | Written by Brian King, Matthew Brian King | Directed by Vincenzo Natali

Often it feels like there are not enough ghost stories based horror films these days, but then when you think about it we’ve had Insidious, Sinister and The Conjuring just to name a few.  I’m not sure why I feel there needs to be more but this could be a sign that things need to be shaken up a bit.  Saying that though I’ll be reviewing Soulmate soon which is a good old-fashioned ghost story that gets so much right, so most importantly these films just need to be good.  Haunter looks to add a little something different to the mix with the question, do ghosts realise they are actually dead?

Haunter DVD Review

9 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Vincenzo Natali

Starring: Abigail Breslin, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden, Stephen McHattie, Peter DaCunha, Samantha Weinstein, Eleanor Zichy, David Hewlett,

Running Time: 97 Minutes

Certificate: 15

A horror version of Groundhog Day? “Surely not,” I hear you cry. The idea of rinse and repeat in the world of film, allowing for a protagonist to learn a valuable lesson and/or solve a mystery has recently been used in sci-fi thriller Source Code and sci-fi action caper Edge Of Tomorrow. It’s a complicated premise that is also simple to implement, much like time travel. Also like time travel, it is something that is very difficult to get correct as the film is instantly at risk from tripping over its feet. Haunter is thankfully a rather successful attempt at taking the idea of living the same day over and over again.

The first positive to say about the film is that it doesn’t muck about. »

Telefilm Canada Supports New Feature Films

20 June 2014 9:55 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Telefilm Canada has confirmed its financial support of nearly $13 million of Canadian tax payers' money towards the production of nine English-language feature films through the 'Canada Feature Film Fund', although there doesn't seem to be anything culturally 'Canadian' about most of their selections, other than the crews that will be working on them.

Among the films receiving money include a psycho horror with a demonic 'Santa Claus', a bio pic about a former Queen of Sweden, the 'relationship' between 'James Dean' and a photographer, a thriller involving a Satanic child abuse sex ring, and an inflatable Sex Doll drug smuggling story:

The films are "After the Ball" (Sean Garrity), "A Christmas Horror Story" (Steven Hoban, Grant Harvey, Brett Sullivan), "Aloft" (Claudia Llosa), "A Worthy Companion" (Jason Sanchez, Carlos Sanchez), "Life" (Anton Corbijn), "Regression" (Alejandro Amenabar), "Rest Home" (Michael Rowe), "The Girl King" (Mika Kaurismäki) and "Zoom" (Pedro Morelli »

Haunter Blu-ray / DVD Release Details and Cover Art

22 January 2014 8:40 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Haunter was released late last year to select theaters and is also available on Cable VOD and a number of digital platforms. If you’ve been holding out for the Blu-ray / DVD release, the movie will be available early next month.

Lisa Johnson is one day shy of her sixteenth birthday. And she will be forever. She and her family are dead and doomed to repeat that fateful last day before they were all killed in 1985. Only Lisa has “woken up” and realizes what is going on. She starts to feel as if she is being haunted, but the “ghost” turns out to be Olivia, a very much alive girl who lives in the house in the present day with her own family. With her help, Lisa discovers that the house once belonged to a serial killer who kidnapped teenage girls and burned their remains in a hidden furnace room. »

Watch MovieWeb's Brian Gallagher Get Bloody for Carrie

16 January 2014 2:01 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During a press event for Carrie, which is now available on Blu-ray and DVD, our own Brian Gallagher was invited to a Hollywood studio where a bucket of fake blood was dumped on his head, just like the iconic scene in the horror remake. Obviously, his acting skills aren't nearly as good as Chloe Moretz's, but you can take a look to see his reaction as the blood is literally spilled. You can also clickHere to read our interview with director Kimberly Peirce, and take a look at the special features details below.

Carrie is a reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloe Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

Directed by Kimberly Peirce and produced by Kevin Misher, »

Exclusive: Director Kimberly Peirce Talks Carrie

16 January 2014 1:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, I was invited to a special press event where I got to chat with director Kimberly Peirce about her horror remake Carrie, which recently took home the People's Choice Award for Best Horror Movie, and is currently avaialable on Blu-ray and DVD. However, the interview wasn't the only thing on the agenda.

Even if you haven't seen this remake yet, you likely know that the "blood dump" is one of the most iconic moments from Brian De Palma's original Carrie, and the scene is just as memorable in the remake, which centers on a tormented high school girl (Chloe Moretz) who discovers her telekinetic abilities. To celebrate the Blu-ray and DVD release, Fox Home Entertainment invited me to get a bucket of blood dumped on me. How could I pass up such an offer? So, before you check out my exclusive interview with Kimberly Peirce, where »
