If I were to build a car, a gorgeous and solidly designed automobile and it didn't have an engine; then I failed in a fundamental way.
The acting was great, what little interest I had was carried by it's strong cast and I found myself caring more for the real-life drama more than the ghost. The supernatural was an interruption rather than what the film should have been about.
Bottom line, want scares? Well, you will find an absolutely none. Want a decent drama about a woman on her own? You'll find here and oh yea...there is this ghost problem.
Because it was a failure in what it set out to do, it wasted two hours of my life with it's utter dullness.( Made worse than normal since I was expecting a thriller.) Please Hollywood, stop lying in your advertising.
