Abigail, the teenage ghost

Trapped in a groundhog day hell that’s an endless loop of the same meatloaf, lame jokes, chores and reruns, a teenage ghost (Abigail Breslin) incurs the wrath of a spectral serial killer (Stephen McHattie).

Sadly, Vincenzo Natali never quite replicates the claustrophobic dread he conjured in Cube. He also struggles to disclose the backstory without sacrificing forward momentum.

And yet… though his haunted-house tale ultimately lacks the strong storytelling its high concept calls for, it still compels with its ambition, occasional eloquence, and heart-in-the-right- place vibe.
