I couldn’t imagine a better way to reinvent the Halloween-themed horror film. Haunts are the next logical step to trick or treating. They’re unpredictable, terrifying, and they’re just another disaster waiting to happen. They’re a safe scare until you realize that none of this stuff is fake and that you just stepped into a trap. Escape Room, release the same year, had a totally different vibe.
This one is for the Saw generation, and it takes us way back. Fiction inspires reality, which in turns inspires fiction. It’s a claustrocore film, which means that the characters are confined to one location. But I didn’t feel it. Haunt didn’t penetrate my soul. It had its moments, it was really well made, but it didn’t build up tension. It was too busy with the polish and the polish weakened it.
Haunt has instances of explicit gore, punctuated by pacing issues. It’s ups and downs with this one until the very end. It’s obviously made by talented filmmakers, but the screenplay is flawed. I kept wondering why so many villains were injected and why they were so fleshed out. The less you know... Haunt is shot remarkably well, but it came out ten years too late.
