    Haunt looks like a better Hell Fest than Hell Fest.

    Roth was supposed to direct a Funhouse remake, maybe it turned into this instead?

    Looks like a cross between funhouse and hell fest with a bit of saw thrown in for good measure, all good qualities for me, I'm definitely up for this.

    Seems a little strange to release it so early, would have though this would have been perfect for the Halloween season, with no Halloween sequel this year.

    I agree......but September is early enough for me to start smelling Halloween..... I'm all about a flick like this a few weeks prior to kick off the October festivities. Fuck, it's early August and I'm already compiling an October viewing list.

    It looks ok I guess. It feels like something I've seen before without a real twist. At least not yet.

    Shame no purchase from me, I'll watch it and if I love it wait for blu, fingers crossed it will get released on blu in a European territory.

    I rented this last night and had so much fun with it! This is much better than the extremely similar Hell Fest.

    I will give Hell Fest the edge for set and production design, but Haunt delivers a much more satisfying slasher movie. It's even genuinely suspenseful throughout, where I don't remember Hell Fest being suspenseful at all. The killer(s) are quite creepy, if maybe a bit silly later in the movie. It's gorier, faster-paced, etc. Like Hell Fest, the killers are motiveless, it's set on Halloween, and about 90% of the movie takes place inside the haunt.

    This was written and directed by the writing team behind last year's hit A Quiet Place. They must have a thing for foot trauma, because like the steps in A Quiet Place, there are several voyeuristic scenes of feet about to step on nails. It's like Tarantino, except if Margot Robie and Margaret Qualley took nails to the feet.

    Anyway, I'd highly recommend this one to the slasher fans out there. It's probably one of the more satisfying slasher films I've seen lately. Although I might suggest waiting for the DVD or SHUDDER premiere in October, as this is definitely a Halloween movie (it opens with a jack-o-lantern being thrown against someone's front door) and would be perfect for the season. Like Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, this one is maybe just a bit premature for Halloween.

    Just finished watching this and had a blast. Like others have said, this is WAY better than Hell Fest (I couldn't even sit through all of that film). Here we have likable characters and/or ones that don't get on your nerves the entire time. The killers are actually pretty creepy and their masks have significance which I really liked. Plus the haunt setting felt pretty genuine and was an interesting element that was done well here. Easy recommendation from me.
