Vincenzo Natali said that he was drawn to the film because, unlike Splice (2009), which took him twelve years to complete, Haunter only needed to be shot. See more »
When Lisa watches the "Moving Day" video, her little brother is wearing an Edmonton Oilers sweater, but this is the style sweater the Oilers wore at the time the movie was made in 2012, not the style they wore in 1984. The NHL crest at the base of the collar gives away that it is not a 1980s sweater. See more »
It's like mom's pancakes. Every morning she makes them for breakfast. And you're always trying to fix the car, which for some mysterious reason has always stopped running. Then Mac & Cheese for lunch. Then we have meatloaf for dinner. Every night. At 8:00 we watch Murder She Wrote. We go to bed, wake up tomorrow, and do exact same thing.
Well you have school tomorrow, and I have work, so...

I think "Haunter" is a very good, ghostly movie without a lot of blood and gore. This movie uses atmosphere and suspense instead of buckets of blood. Abigail Breslin plays the depressed, moody teen Lisa Johnson who doesn't understand why her life is not going the way she wants it to. Her parents and little brother are loving, but they don't understand her and Abigail gives a true-to-form performance. Stephen McHattie is also excellent as the creepy repairman who stalks Lisa and she tries her best to keep up appearances even though in her heart, mind, and soul, it is very wrong. Lisa is not a bad girl by any means. Her family is very loving, but they don't understand why Lisa is depressed. "Haunter" reminds me of the creepy movies filmmakers used to make that use atmosphere, suspense, and mood to tell the audience the story they are trying to film.
