The Haunts Are Real!
12 November 2019 | by traciecavillSee all my reviews

Thematically similar to last year's Hell Fest, Haunt deals with similar territory, but it's different enough to not feel like you'd be wasting your time if you'd already seen the other film.

A battered young woman escapes from a Halloween evening with her abusive boyfriend and goes to hang out with her fun loving friends. They pick up some guys and drive around, wondering what to do next. They encounter a quaint haunted house attraction deep in the woods and decide that this should be how they spend their Halloween night. Since this this is a horror film, you can already guess that the performers inside might have more sinister and deadly motives than just supplying a good scare or two.

Haunt is a fairly simplistic movie, but the performances are mostly above average for a film of this sort and it's refreshing to see horror film characters do the right thing on multiple occasions. I can't say it's a tremendous, original take on the slasher genre, but it gets the job done and supplies a few jolts here and there.

The effects work is great and, when the villains' masks come off, it's a pretty horrifying sight. I do wish that, perhaps, there was a bit more backstory about this haunted house and the performers who inhabit it. How long has this been up? Have they done this in other locations? The logistics were hurting my head a bit, but thankfully, the movie moves so quick that you don't have a lot of time to think about such things as you're watching it.
