**This is a "NON-SPOILER" alert!! I feel I have no choice but to give this alert since spoiler alerts were placed in at least 3 of my reviews at IMDb's discretion even though there were no spoilers in them. I doubt if they even saw the movie or they would know. I complained (nicely) once and one of them was changed but I can't be bothered any more.
Okay. To business. This movie is about a woman who was in an abusive relationship which came to an end when her husband dies in a car accident due to an argument the two of them were having in the car at the time. The woman was now free of her husband in terms of his actual physical presence in her life. However, for a time, she was haunted by him --or thought that she was-- because she "saw things".
A friend reintroduces her to her first love whose heart she broke when she entered into a marriage of convenience with an abusive man. At this point, the "haunting" she experienced after his death have ceased and it now seems she was completely free to start a new relationship. Eventually they get married --but not uneventfully, since something happens. Later she and her child (a boy) move into her new husband's home where he lives with his mother (something her new mother-in-law had insisted on). Things begin to happen, starting with the woman's son, who is seeing and experiencing things. It shortly becomes clear that the haunting has restarted; a fact the woman assumes to be the result of her deceased former husband's displeasure with her new marriage.
The best thing about this movie is that it has a interesting story with a nice plot twist about the haunting. Unfortunately the whole thing gets blown to hell --I think-- at the end (the last 10-12 mins, or so). I guess they wanted to end with a big bang but I believe they misfired since the result was an over-the-top, non-scary cliché (things flying all over the place and an ineffectual priest) and a ghost that appeared as just a deranged person and not "ghostly creepy" at all. So a nice story ruined by the ending like a gymnast who does some nice twists and turns in the air but then lands on their face. Too bad. Love, Boloxxxi.
