Tossed salad cream
21 June 2015 | by (The Undertow) – See all my reviews

Obscure story - girl gets haunted because ... her ghosts need to be dispelled?

The first hour is impressive. As always with this series, the sound is excellent (although the shrieking-witch violins are held back to the end credits), and there's an effective jump scare at 30 mins + at 50 mins a really well lamp-lit journey in the after-world. And it's good to see Lyn Shane carrying a film.

So the whole thing is nicely set up - maybe an allegory for a father's grief over his daughter's suicidal tendency - and then ... they introduce the ghost busters team and ruin the whole effect. Also the rest of the jump scares are lame. Pfff. And the father has no real character. And James Wan is part of the cast - the director in the theatre.

The tone changes so radically in the final act that you have to think the producers reduced the plot to a marketing vehicle so they could plan for the next sequel.
