Valentine's Day doesn't have to be sweet and sentimental.
How about savage and sreaming?
Welcome Haunter (IFC Films).
In this eerie thriller, a teen comes to the distressing realization that she is a ghost . . . and must save others from the fate that befell her years earlier. The latest film from scare master Vincenzo Natali arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on February 11.
Abigail Breslin stars in Natali's unique take on the traditional haunted house story. In 1986, 15-year-old Lisa (Breslin) and her family died in their home under sinister circumstances. Unable to move on, their spirits have continued to roam the house. And for nearly 30 years, they have had to live the same miserable day over and over, never thinking they're anything but alive.
But now, Lisa has started noticing things that make her believe that she and her uncomprehending family are in fact ghosts. On top of that, she realizes that she must reach out from beyond the grave to help her living counterpart Olivia and her family avoid the same gruesome fate that Lisa and her loved ones suffered all those years ago.
Uniquely unsettling and shocking, Haunter is a one-of-a-kind reverse ghost story that chills long after the final frame. Veteran actor Stephen McHattie co-stars as the sinister Pale Man, along with Eleanor Zichy, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden and David Hewlett.
