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.
