    It's all an earnest effort, three decades too late. show more

    Though a few scary skeletons (and one doll) rattle in and out of the film's closet, Bardwell is a slave to television lexicon, allowing Bryan and his lawyer buddy (Tom Arnold) to brave the banter of shrill detective comedies, and framing his images with all the brio of your average "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" episode. show more

    Old-fashioned in the worst sense, Bardwell's ghost story is heavy on Freud, light on fear. show more

    Wow! I was truly caught unprepared a few times and felt the hairs on my arms standing up. Unfortunately Zoe Saldana was not brought back into he ending of the movie and...wait, this movie didn\'t even have an ending in my opinion. So...great first 80% of the film. Then it\'s as if they ran out of money to *********!
