"Haunter" offers a freaky, visceral experience - without a hint of gore.
Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times, 2013-10-24
Lifted by the sepulchral Stephen McHattie as Lisa's nemesis, the film's frazzled thought experiment becomes an adequate yarn.
Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, 2013-10-17
Abigail Breslin is effective enough to generate a rooting interest in the plucky protagonist of the piece, and to sustain interest when narrative logic turns fuzzy.
Joe Leydon, Variety, 2013-10-14
Clever haunted-house pic will please more than hardcore fright fans.
John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, 2013-10-14
Haunter continues the close-but-no-cigar tradition of Natali's post-Cube endeavors.

Inspiration seems to come from Groundhog Day, Beetlejuice and even The Shining.
Linda Barnard, Toronto Star, 2013-12-19
A dull, confusing movie for which nobody bothered to provide a script.
Rex Reed, New York Observer, 2013-10-23
The plot spirals into increasing fuzziness ...
Sara Stewart, New York Post, 2013-10-18
The occasionally intriguing, but ultimately middling Haunter is caught in some kind of gauzy haunted-house purgatory between a girl-powered YA story and a ghostly serial-killer mystery.
Josh Modell, AV Club, 2013-10-17
Has an elegance roughly on par with a Goosebumps novel, refusing to follow its own contradictory rules and barely sustaining a pretense of internal logic.
