So many kids die in this movie. Some deaths are shown, some aren’t. They all re-appear in dead ghost form later. Don’t watch if you’re uncomfortable with seeing kids kill themselves violently/seeing them dead afterwards.

There are several ghosts in the film.
The WiB shows up in nearly every scene, although she just looks like a woman in a funeral gown until you get close.
Nathaniel Drablow, who was a child who drowned in a bog, returns covered head to toe in black mud.
The WiB also has a family" of dusty ghost kids following her around.

The ending is more frustrating. The "the menace is not gone" trope which is used in horror movies is a bit overdone. But I guess strictly speaking it can be viewed as happy (family reunion).
