How do you not laugh when the horror film you’re meant to be watching, unexpectedly turns into a comedy?.For the most part Bhatt exploits the 3D to make things jump out at you, and while it’s not as much as fun as the last Final Destination movie, there are moments that will make you leap in your seat.I’m going with two out of five for director Vikram Bhatt’s Haunted. You’ll be laughing hard for hours after you’ve watched this film. Not what you expect from horror, is it?

On the whole, HAUNTED is for today's movie savvy audience. It succeeds in keeping you tense and edgy, as a true poltergeist/horror flick should. There are scenes and situations aplenty to shock and astound the viewer coupled with the 3D effects, the prosthetics, the background score, an absorbing screenplay and deft handling of the subject material. It is these superior factors that outweigh the blemishes and make it an interesting cinematic experience. Go, get spooked! watch Haunted.

Is Haunted the answer to the chill hunters' prayers? Not completely. And that's because the story is dog-eared and done-to-death. But if the film works -- and it works quite well -- is only because of the special effects of the film. Experiencing the horror in 3D is indeed a novel experience for the viewer, specially since it is smartly done. Each time the ghosts lunge out at you, stick out their tongue or flail their limbs, you jump back in your seat. And yes, there are a lot of ghosts, performing a lot of ghastly acrobatics. There's even a snake sticking out its venom at you and a hurtling brick, almost missing your nose....Great fun. Want to scream? Watch Haunted.

Of course Bhatt can’t be bothered with minor details like this. Instead he creates an absolutely ridiculous horror movie that works better as comedy, unintentional of course.Vikram uses formulaic horror tropes – mist, screeching doors, books that fall by themselves and blaring background music that insists that you be scared. I was trying not to laugh out loud. I’m going with one and a half star.

Ratings:1.5/5 Reviewer:Preeti Arora Site:Rediff
And here's the thing about good horror films: they're either brilliantly bloodcurdling, or conveniently comic. Either way, it's entertaining. But Haunted adds a third dimension to this classification. It's annoying. There's no subtle way of saying this, really, so here it is: nothing in this film works. Not the story, not the acting, not the music and certainly not the 3D. Haunted is a total downer, and the title of "India's first stereoscopic 3D film" certainly deserved a much better movie to go along with it.The horror fans who thrive on Hiss and Click, or the Mimoh fans might just be able to sit through this film. The others should give it a miss.

What’s Good: The 3D effects; some horror scenes.What’s Bad: The lack of emotional appeal in the story; the length of the film.Verdict: ‘Haunted’ will score because of its 3D version.Loo break: A couple of them in the second half.Watch or not?: Watch ‘Haunted’ for the 3D effects.On the whole, Haunted is an ordinary fare with excellent 3D effects. It will do very good business in cinemas showing it in the 3D version but its 2D version will not do half as well.

Vikram Bhatt surely deserves a pat on the back for executing a sensuous paranormal in 3D format.  He takes audience expectation and fascination to a new level by making ‘Haunted’ in 3D format. The spine chilling flick quite fairly manages to scare people as horror and 3D is a scary combination which makes it real. He has created a perception of depth which sets your adrenaline rushing. But at the same time too much of unrealistic material and poor editing makes the film loosely packed which lets your enthusiasm and scary emotions take a backseat at the end. The climax is too melodramatic and boring. It’s a must watch if you are a lover of gritty horror flick with romance as background.

Ratings:2/5 Reviewer:Shubhra Gupta Site:IndianExpress
The only new thing about `Haunted’ is that it is Bollywood horror in 3 D. The rest of it, by which we mean the principal stuff that makes it a film—story, location, characters—are all same old same old.But adding a third dimension alone does not a film make, especially if it tries lifting dull content and new actors with scant screen presence.You are left feeling grateful for the couple of creepy moments the film manages, before sinking into sameness again.

  1. Haunted, indeed succeeds in creating horror (Especially in 3D). The formula is pretty old but it does work well in today's time too. But the horror is overdone with Ghostly acts happening in almost every scene. After sometime the horror becomes expected and monotonous. The effects still hold your attention keeping you on the edge of the seat. Acting wise Mahaakshay manages to keep 1 expression throughout the film (whether its romantic, comic or horror he has only one expression :). Tia is good but she had too do a lot of screaming which has over-shadowed her acting skills. Music is very melodious and soulful. I will give it a 3 out of 5. If you wanna scream then Haunted is the right movie for you.

  4. Unmatched as compared to 1920. I went to feel the experience and the triumph of good against the evil but it turned out to be a boring comedy-come-horror movie with an annoying climax. Some 3d effects were good but not worth the whole amount. 0.5 out of 5

  21. The movie really scared me. I am very picky when it comes to horror movies, most make me laugh, and this definitely did not. The story is a bit predictable, same old damsel and the creepy haunted manor. Same old spooky moments. But somehow it still made me feel bad, sad and definitely scared me.
