Abigail Breslin in First Trailer for Vincenzo Natali's Horror 'Haunter'
After venturing into thriller territory with The Call, teenage actress Abigail Breslin is now in straight-up horror territory with Haunter, the new film from Splice director Vincenzo Natali. When we heard about the story in the spring of 2012, it sounded like an original approach to familiar ghost stories we've seen before. However, this first trailer seems to be trying to hide the unique twist on this kind of thriller. We won't spoil it just in case that might ruin the movie, but you won't have to search far to find the original plot synopsis. The down side is without knowing those details, the film looks painfully generic for the genre.
Here's the first trailer for Vincenzo Natali's Haunter, originally from Apple:
Vincenzo Natali (Splice) directs Haunter from a script by Brian King (Cypher, Night Train). Abigail Breslin stars as a young girl who must unravel a decades-old mystery to save her family in this haunted house thriller. Stephen McHattie, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden and David Hewlett also star in the film which played the 2013 SXSW Film Festival. IFC Films sends the film to iTunes and theaters October 18th.
