The movie was trying to aim for ambiguity, it didn't hit that. But it was in the line of sight.
The ghost story gets to be silly, and wants to have it both ways, as ghost stories often do, on the question of whether various signs from beyond the grave are real or imagined.... Yet Ms. Stewart’s portrayal has the ring of truth and the urgency of terror.
Ultimately, all we have to hold on to in a story that lurches inexorably into CGI absurdity is our emotional connection with Stewart’s lost, lonely character.
This aggravatingly empty would-be suspense piece puts all its trust in its star to save the day, but even this compulsively watchable performer can’t elevate such a vapid, undeveloped screenplay.

- When Maureen is texting, her texts are frequently answered immediately, usually in less than one second. There is no time lag built in for the other person to read her text and type in their response. This goof is probably intentional. Building in a time lag for the other person to read/respond to her messages would considerably slow down the pacing of the movie, so responses to her texts were probably prepared in advance and sent immediately.
- [talking about her deceased brother]
- Maureen Cartwright: So we made this oath... Whoever died first would send the other a sign.
- Ingo: What do you mean by- by vibe?
- Maureen Cartwright: It's an intuition thing; it's a feeling. You... You see this door... That's only like slightly, ajar.
- Ingo: Well... How's within that, that the soul... continues to exist... after death?
- Maureen Cartwright: I don't even know if I believe in that. But... Lewis did. And I- I have to give his... spirit -whatever you wanna call it- a chance to prove him right.
- Ingo: A sign? From- from the afterlife?
- Maureen Cartwright: You could call it that; you could call it a million things.
- Ingo: But... how do you know if it's a sign?
- Maureen Cartwright: I'm a medium. He was- he was a medium. I'll just know it.
- Ingo: Have you... communicated with spirits before?
- Maureen Cartwright: Um. Lewis thought they were... spirits. I'm- I'm less sure. But yes. Uh, somewhat.
- [gets off the couch to smoke]
- Maureen Cartwright: I mean there are invisible... presences... around us. Always. I mean whether or not they're the souls of the dead, I don't know, but... You know when you're a medium you just are attuned to some sort of... vibe.
