I really liked George C Scott in this, he's one of a kind.
By haunting I mean the camera just kind of looms over staircase balconies, down dark hallways of multiple floors, and this all works in perfect conjunction with carefully made sound design and music score.
The similarities get more profound in the latter part of the film when it focuses more on the mystery solving and trying to help the ghost to find peace.
