Jack (MacLeod Andrews) is to fix up a house after the former tenents left in an absolute hurry. What Jack doesn't know is that the tenents were scared away by ghost Muriel (Natalie Walker), who seems to have been haunting the house for quite a while now. So Jack has no second thoughts about crashing at the house after his own place is fumigated and none of his friends volunteer to grant him abode. At first, Muriel's subtle attempts to create the right atmosphere don't even bother him very much, as he just rationalizes them away, not believing in the supernatural, but then Muriel goes full blast horror show, and she has Jack running - to his car to drive away, but when he notices he has forgotten his car keys inside the house, he braves re-entering, and upon the realization that it is all just a show, he decides to bite the bullet and stay - and when he also realizes he can actually communicate with Muriel, he tries to strike up a conversation, and riddles her with so many questions that she takes off to the ghost office to ask her supervisor Ms. Henry (Amanda Miller) for advice - but she can help nothing more than promise to send a young and very effective ghost, Rosie (Sydney Vollmer), as reinforcement. Muriel returns to the house, and she and Jack start to talk and gradually grow really fond of one another - which is when Rosie turns up and tries all tricks in the book to scare Jack shitless. And while she's good with jump scares, Jack doesn't fall for it anymore. And this is the cause of a lot of problems, as for one, Rosie's scare tactics might not be effective but pretty annoying still, and two, Jack doesn't want to leave the house and doesn't want to lose Muriel, but if she fails to scare him away she will just vanish - so there's quite a dilemma for him to solve ...

 

Starting out as your typical horror comedy, with all the scares and the giggles in the right places, it's not long before this movie veers off into a direction all of its own, where romance and philosophy meet, but also irony on a meta level, questioning the genre as such. But thanks to a light-footed approach on both the script and the directorial level, paired with very relatable performances by the two leads, this movie flows in a very entertaining way that even finds something positive in the film's very macabre resolution. A film that's bound to appeal to ghost story fans, also because it does not play like every other ghost story.
