Despite endless jarbled techno-nonsense about EEGs and spectral energy, the ghostly terror at the center of this generic scarer remains a paranormal nonentity. Manifesting itself as a cheap gray smudge, it likes moving furniture, opening garage doors, and lamely spooking stars Ashley Greene and Sebastian Stan, as well as Harry Potter’s Tom Felton, who switches out Latinate spells for clunky exposition. With more telegraphed scares than Samuel Morse on Halloween, it still might give you a restless night, but only because you fell asleep in the theater. D?
