IFC Films has put out a handful of new images, along with a new poster for “Cube” director Vincenzo Natali’s “Haunter”, which is described as a “reverse ghost story”. That means we’re seeing the story play out through the ghost’s perspective instead of through the living girl being haunted, as is usually the case in these haunted house movies. The ghost here is Abigail Breslin of “Zombieland” fame, though later another ghost girl shows up, which is a bit confusing, but there you go.
Please to check out the new images and poster.
In this reverse ghost story, teenager Lisa Johnson (Breslin) and her family died in 1986 under sinister circumstances but remain trapped in their house, unable to move on. Over a period of six “days”, Lisa must reach out from beyond the grave to help her present-day, living counterpart, Olivia, avoid the same fate Lisa and her family suffered.
Starring Abigail Breslin, Stephen McHattie, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden, and of course, Natali’s BFF David Hewlett.
“Haunter” is currently scheduled to open in limited release this October 18, 2013.
