Vincenzo Natali is working on his follow up to 2009’s “Splice”, a “reverse ghost story” called “Haunter”, and has put together quite the cast. Filming has begun, and the actors along for the ride include Abigail Breslin (“Zombieland”), Stephen McHattie (“300”, “Pontypool”), Peter Outerbridge (“Nikita”), Michelle Nolden (“RED”), and David Hewlett (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”).
“Haunter” takes a standard ghost story trope—where a living, breathing human has to help a restless ghost—and turns it around, telling the story from the perspective of the restless spirits. “Teenage Lisa (Breslin) and her family died in 1986 under sinister circumstances but remain trapped in their house, unable to move on. 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.”
Here’s what Natali has to say about his horror thriller:
“Haunter” vividly demonstrates that even ghosts have a lot to be afraid of. Brian King’s script constructs a Borgian Labyrinth out of the most mundane settings and shows us how even in our everyday lives, we are spirits living in the material world.
