Its mixing of horror and drama is mismatched. As despite the intriguing premise, the narrative feels quite routine and it never grips, excites, or deeply emotes. It's a case of having too many subplots, threads, and ideas to build to a substantial climax outside of a generically invoked emotional journey for the main character. We Go On never truly finds a groove nor does it launch out of mediocrity.
First off, Anette O´Toole owns the hell out of this movie and the filmmakers can thank their lucky stars for getting her since the actor playing the main character is not very convincing. Storywise things start out in a pretty good way but around the half way point we end up in the "I'm-haunted" trope that has been done to death and way better than here.
