This review is from: Haunted  [Dutch Import] (DVD)
Being a fan of James Herbert I thought I would invest in the film based on his book 'Haunted'. I quickly re-read the book to refresh my memory. The film was well acted and enjoyable. The ending of the film came as a surprise because it was slightly different to that in the book [you shouldn't really compare the two]some characters were also removed and another added. If you are looking to be scared then I don't believe this film will scare you. If you have never read the book then you are in for a big surprise with the plot and for that alone it's worth watching. The story is based around two brothers and a sister [who have an unusual relationship] and their 'nanny' who suffers terribly during the film. A paranormal investigater is brought in to determine whether the statley home is haunted or not [he has had tragedy in his life] - he believes ghosts don't exist - will his views change with the run of events that follow during his stay at the home - I guess you will have to watch the film [and definately read the book]to find out.
