I love ghost and supernatural movies, but not classic horror. I do not like gore and violence. This movie struck a great balance. Only the end got a bit much for me. Probably for horror buffs it was mild so not to worry if you are into that genre. Scary-wise it was great! Nice plot and very creepy connection to Black Dahlia without redoing her whole story. They gave an overview so that the viewer would know enough background to follow this plot even if they had never heard of this famous case. The movie is not about the Black Dahlia directly, but a new story connected to the original murder and the ghost of the victim through the characters of this story. The cast was also great, especially the lead actress. In some scenes facial expressions helped the viewer know what was happening,and she nailed it. Loved the way it ended, but won't comment so as not to give a spoiler.
