Okay, so, uh, this movie was creepy and scary? Yeah, about as much so as a Scooby Doo cartoon. Big, old house like that, little larger budget and there coulda been some cool special effects but nooooooo. Instead, all they could do was spend an hour or so and doctor some photographs which set the whole ending in motion. So much more of this 96 minutes should have been spent on horror instead of their relationship. Who cares that they were up there in Humboldt to repair their marriage. Once they got there there were strange happenings and more should have been focused on that. Too much kissy, smiley, makey lovey, not enough mystery thriller in getting to the end. Was it a spooky, ghostly horror movie or a romance? Should not have been both! And what was with the Sarah Warner character? The dog, after William R. Moses saw him in the picture, was understandable but where'd that other woman come from? Yes, i saw the headstone but still. Oy vey! Overall, not horrible but not at all noteworthy except for maybe some picturesque scenery in and around the quaint, northern Cali coastal town. I give this a grade of C-.
