Excellent supernatural mystery
1 April 2018 | by SockatumeSee all my reviews

A cut above the usual skeptic vs supernatural movie, necessarily episodic, with a good vein of comedy and a strong sense of dread. Like the rest of its little genre, it has interesting things to say about the social role of the paranormal, but it comes alive when it turns its attention to its protagonist.
