Haunting at the Beacon (The Beacon) (REVIEW)

The connection between physical place and past human histories is at the crux of haunting narratives. The bumps in the night, floating specters, or rattling chains don’t make a haunting, but it is the implied ability of the past and present to fold in on one another with usually horrific results. It seems that because of this implication haunting films are more susceptible to be lazy when providing a reason for the fantastic occurrences. The filmmakers, to a certain extent, can get away with much more with much less explanation.
