Reviews:

“The chasing and killing lasted about the late 30 minutes of the movie. By then, sitting through this could be potentially agonizing and you wished for this to appear earlier or hoped they had shortened the film. Finally, we get the scare for one last time and we have reached the end.” Movie Exclusive

” Technical loopholes such as the inclusion of a polished soundtrack […] bewildered and marred what could have been a credible stab toward authenticity. Don’t expect great acting here, but the cast did reasonably well as scream kings and queens trying to escape the inevitable […] The Haunted House Project works according to formula, so don’t expect anything groundbreaking to come out of it.” (A Nutshell) Review

“We spend a lot of time learning about the characters through their actions and interactions, but all of that goes out the window in the ensuing panic when the haunting truly begins. I expected more than simply running from Wan-soo and the producer. Haunted House is a fun movie. No deep thoughts are required or hidden meanings to find.” Seen in Jeonju

“There was potential, especially with the creepy location, but instead of attempting any creativity, we’re given a pretty formulaic storyline and lackluster attempts at scares. All negative aside, the film kept my interest for the most part and I did enjoy some of the exploring of the home. However, unless you’re a big fan of the particular sub-genre, I’d advise skipping this.” Upcoming Horror Movies
