Movie pick: Haunter (PG13)

It's unusual to see a Canadian movie in Singapore, probably about as rare as it is to see a Singaporean movie in Canada.

Let's face it, neither Canada nor Singapore are setting the world on fire movie-wise.

Anyway, Haunter is a rather atmospheric and sensitive little horror flick that isn't too scary, but is plenty entertaining.

Abigail Breslin stars as Lisa, a girl who's been living the same boring day in the same boring house with her same boring family for decades.

Then she wakes up.

It turns out she's a ghost.

She ends up making contact with a living girl, and then sets out to save the girl from the same demon who murdered her and her family.

Haunter has an unusually cosy look and feel for a horror movie. I like it.
