A group of friends face peril and uncertainty at an extreme haunted house. Haunt shares a lot of things in common with another film recently acquired and released on Shudder, The Furies. Both films are very thin on an actual plot, but push their simple concept as far as they can. In The Furies, a gang of bizarre killers stalk and murder their young victims. In Haunt, a gang of bizarre killers stalk and murder their young victims. The ending of The Furies is a button ending showing one of our heroes lashing out against their “captors” outside the world of the crime scene. The ending of Haunt is a button ending showing one of our heroes lashing out against their “captors” outside the world of the crime scene. For some reason, though, Haunt works quite a bit better. Maybe it is the style of the filmmaking or the building of the tension. The characters aren’t particularly compelling. There isn’t a great deal of plot to latch onto. Haunt just plays its scares very well, and reveals the truth about its villains in a bone-chilling kind of way. Haunt may lack depth, but it doesn’t lack much as far as entertainment value goes. Haunt succeeds in being a fun horror movie for people looking for a simple story with good scares.
