I was also a bit torn on the inclusion of a character called Pascow (Brad Greenquist), a young man who dies despite Louis trying to save him in the hospital and returns as a benevolent ghost to help the family with warnings and advice.
The story is rushed and characters' decisions seem to lack any sort of logic (like why did Jud take Louis to the burial ground in the first place?).
