Haunters is about a ghost girl who lives in a toilet and freaks people out whenever they poop.
Actually it's not. It's really about this dude who has eyes that let him control everybody he sees, except for this other dude who for some reason heals really quickly and can break free of dude A's mind control. They meet, they fight, they chase after each other for a while, then the movie ends.
I actually really enjoyed like 70% of this movie. The good guy's buddys made great supportive comic relief and I'm always a sucker for realistic portrayals of super powers. The only real problems I had with it were that it went on too long and the two main dudes start talking like they are fatalistic enemies destined to always be at odds with each other. All this talk of dude B causing the death of all his friends and dude A has it so tough being different and blahbedy blah. I thought there could be more to explore with both of their relationship if the movie didn't have to force itself into some chase-y action flick.
Still, not bad at all. Definitely some interesting situations.
Oh, I also loved when dude B slams on his breaks after trying to hit dude A with his van. The van goes up like onto its grill with momentum. Funny visual gag in the middle of a tense scene.
