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.
