A man haunted by ghosts gets caught up in the investigation of the death of a famous journalist in this po-faced yet sometimes comically mishandled supernatural drama from Blair. It tries to cultivate character by laying the stylish tics on thick (distractingly askew camera angles, frequent flashbacks) but most of the elements are at odds. Thinly drawn and poorly paced with precious little suspense, while the story itself is predictable and laboriously imparted.
