31 Days of Halloween — Day 27: Haunter (2013) — by Wolfman Josh

haunter_posterEditor’s note: Wolfman Josh is a host on Horror Movie Podcast and Movie Stream Cast. He is also a television producer and an award-winning documentary filmmaker. You can follow Josh on Twitter: @IcarusArts


Haunter is a 2013 film (with a terrible title) directed by Vincenzo Natali that stars Abigail Breslin, Peter Outerbridge and Stephen McHattie. The film premiered at SXSW in 2013 and was distributed by IFC Midnight later that year for the Halloween season.

The movie opens in the ’80s with Abigail Breslin playing a suburban teen I’d have loved to hang out with, what with her Bowie, Joy Division and Cure posters on the wall and draped in a kind of haunting Siouxsie and the Banshees t-shirt. We soon realize that Breslin’s character, Lisa Johnson, is stuck in some sort of time loop that only she seems to be aware of. As she goes through her daily routine (on the eve of her sweet sixteen) of practicing her clarinet to Peter and the Wolf (I had this exact same recording as a kid), eating her mom’s homemade mac & cheese for lunch and watching Murder She Wrote each evening with her family (this is my kind of family), I started feeling like this was a world in which I wouldn’t mind being trapped. But Lisa Johnson is, of course, less enthused as there is clearly something eerie going on here.
