The special effects are amazing, just like all of Peter Jackson's films, but the film was very uneven story-wise, and I couldn't tell if it was a horror film, a mystery film, or something else. You have to take into consideration that when I saw an ad for this film, it looked like a horror-mystery film about a little girl who gets murdered and tries to help her family track down the killer from the afterlife. So, when I saw this, I was quite confused as to what it was supposed to be. Also, the film is very slow, and it doesn't move fast enough to be entertaining. Skip it.
