I really liked this movie, and it doesn't suprise me that most people don't. Most people don't have ongoing experiences with the dead. I do. I have since I was a kid. Ghosts are just people. They have the same postive and annoying qualities as living people. They can be helpful, but once living people know you can talk to the dead they want you to do it for them. This can be fun and interesting, but it can also lead to being exploited for your gift. In the end Zel becomes worn out because she can never truly rest. Think how tired you would be if you talked not only to the living but to the dead as well... and they never shut up!? There are so many ways in which I can relate to this odd movie. It's black humor, it's offbeat characters, the music that gives it it's genuinely otherworldly quality. The mystery that only Zel can solve and the way she does it. I think the people who made this movie know what's up. Angela Bettis is wonderful as Zel, but many of the other performances are also great. Don't be put off by the reviews. This is an interesting experience and it will make you think.
