    Haunt can mean make someone feel worried and upset for a long time (http://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/american/haunt_1). It is perfectly acceptable in that sentence.

    1) Soon, scary and weird events start happen to him.
    2)
    Soon, scary and weird events start haunt to him.
    3)
    Soon, scary and weird events start to haunt him.

    So, which one of these is grammatically correct?

    He is tasked with repairing a CCTV camera.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    While I agree that 'tasked with' sounds better, it seems 'tasked to' is also common.
