I like the idea of the movie I just thought it was brought out in a weird way. It took forever before something happened and it’s only this one thing that they figure out. There was so much plot they could have played out and so much more work with ghosts and they don’t and then it’s just over. I feel it’s kinda weird and though I enjoyed watching it I wouldn’t really recommend it to anybody.. I like the setting and the actors but the plot was weird. There’s not much I can say about it either without completely spoiling the movie.
If you have an hour to spare, watch it, if you don’t just don’t watch it and don’t waste your time.
