Dead Souls (Blu-ray release 2013-6-25) is a low-budget ghost movie.  Being low-budget is not a problem.  Repeating the same ghostly apparitions and noises every other scene for one hour without moving the plot forward, is an unacceptable flaw that ruins whatever potential the story has.  Coincidentally, the Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia suffered from the exact same flaw.  And the movie adaptation of this novel does not have much potential either, unfortunately.  The final act is not well explained, and does not make much sense.
