WASDuk Review: Haunt

Mobie: Haunt Grade: F Mac Carter doesn’t really give a shit. Or does he? The film industry is a different monster and a lot of people get stuck with projects so that they can earn credits or pay mortgages or fulfill contract burdens. Honestly, do you really think Forest Whitaker wanted to host the “new”…
