If I was ahead of The Night House for a good chunk of it, it's that I have had, at some point, a certain affinity for magical architecture and psychogeography, so I "solved the mystery" rather early, if we take it to be a mystery story. It's also a spooky ghost story, where the always great Rebecca Hall feels herself visited by the spirit of her husband who, for no apparent reason, committed suicide. So beyond the well-done horror moments (the jump scares are based on her state of mind, no cheats - one such left me with sound-produced goose flesh, you've been warned), it's a story of the grief particular to suicide, the quest for answers where none are satisfactory, and hopefully coming out on the other side with that last stage, acceptance. One thing I want to think was on purpose is how Hall is sometimes shot so that she doesn't look like herself, which ties into the mysteries and mirrors of the story. How much of what we see is supernatural and how much hallucinatory? The film pleasantly doesn't commit to a facile answer.

I don't think this is a ghost story, more like spoiler I personally liked the ending scene a lot.

The first half was quite spooky. The second half had interesting effects, but dropped most of the scares.
Felt like it should've been two different films, to be honest.
