Nick Di Santo has the gift to see how any person that he touches will dies. He visits his mother Lilian that is in an asylum since when he was eight years old and learns that his father is alive. Nick lives with his best friend Ryan and one day he meets Eve in a bar and he finds that he can touch her without any vision. Eve moves to Nick's apartment and soon she is pregnant.

They decide to return home and they meet Chris McCulluch, Lilith and Sam that are measuring the area. They show the location of the house where Nick meets the strange Seth. They are hunted down by creepy creatures with axes but they flee. They decide to leave the place but the road leads them back to the mysterious house.

Finally, a good movie with a house in the woods
11 March 2014 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Haunted aka Dark House, is a good surprise for horror fans and for a horror movie containing this specific theme, a theme that has been repeated a hundred times before, and most of the times, the result was awful.

Story is familiar to anyone, so i won't mention it. This movie has many elements you've seen before. But it manages to combine them affectively by creating a unique atmosphere. Dark House has a good plot, with very good flow, intense atmosphere, keeps your interest the whole time. There are many gloomy scenes, which helps the story's atmosphere and gets the viewer in the mood of it. It's not boring at all. Yeah OK, it has some clichés and flaws, where all movies have, but it's not disappointing or annoying at all.

Victor Salva has created his best movie so far, at least in horror ones. It gives you a surprisingly good atmosphere, good plot, suspension, tense and scary moments. There's a constant tension the whole time. The appearance of Tobin Bell is a huge plus, with his great acting and incredibly deep voice, on a role who easily manages to deliver, tricking and chilling the viewers the way he knows to. Leslie Ann Down is a positive thing too, who is still gorgeous at the age of 60.

I avoided to write any details about the story, cause i didn't want to reveal anything and spoil someones interest to watch this movie.

Overall, this is a very good movie, and i definitely recommend it.

6 out of 10.
