This movie is described as a "horror comedy" but it's essentially a comedy with a bit of romance and some horror elements. If you're looking for an actual horror movie, this isn't it.

But it is a very sweet and sometimes funny retelling of a rather sad tale. Despite wanting a horror film, I ended up being charmed and entertained.

I agree, it's mostly a comedy with a spooky backstory and a couple of jump scares. I watched it a few years ago on the recommendation of a coworker, and I found it really enjoyable.
